Advent Musings pt 4: "God is Very Happy with You."

By Sara Robbert | December 23, 2018

By Sara Robbert | September 23, 2018

All the cliches of the first week of marriage are true: We woke up Monday morning, stunned at how our love seemed to have grown overnight. Having the pressure of the wedding over and our vows made, we felt a huge weight off our shoulders and a deep peace that passes understanding rooted in our…
