Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid

I like to think of myself as an open book. I learned quite some years ago that life isn't about winning a popularity contest, being the most witty, or the prettiest. If the Lord can use any of my struggles and imperfections to help or bless another I'm ready and willing. I'm not perfect and my life isn't always a bed full of roses. A matter of fact my life is usually everything but and that is just fine with me! I find that when times are the toughest and when I have to look at myself...I mean really look at myself warts and all, I not only find Jesus there, but just like the stone being rubbed smooth on a river bed, my heart, mind, and soul are being slowly refined into the person my heavenly Father created me to be. The longer I live the more I realize how important it is to have humble heart and to be willing to accept others criticism. I still struggle with this at times but over the soon to be 9 years of marriage I feel like this has been one of the biggest challenges for me but also one of the greatest blessings! The Lord in his infinite wisdom gave me a wonderful husband who has NEVER had issues with being honest with me...quite frankly sometimes he has been a little too honest! haha! But even those times the Lord used!
