FIVE IS GRACE AND LIFE

WRITTEN ON OUR 5TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

BY:  SUNNY ORLY COFFMAN

APRIL 27, 2000

AS I REFLECT OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS, I’M GLAD TO BE ALIVE

I HAVE A LOT TO REJOICE ABOUT BECAUSE IT HAS ALL BEEN THE WORK OF OUR GOD

WE’VE CONTINUALLY BEEN BLESSED, KEPT, AND NEVER HAD TO STRIVE

WE’RE ALWAYS BEING MOLDED INTO MORE OF THE IMAGE OF THE LORD, OUR GOD.

IT’S NOW BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING WITH ALL ITS PAIN

AND COLUMBINE’S MASSACRE HAS ONLY BEEN A YEAR, BUT THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF NATIONAL AWAKENING

WE FEEL THE TENSION AS ELEAN GONZALES IS USED TO PRODUCE INTERNATIONAL STRAIN

BUT IN SOME WAY ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO PRODUCE WORLDWIDE STRENGTHENING.

SOMEHOW MAN HAS TO RUN THIS COURSE OF REBELLION TO HIS HOLY GOD.

HE MUST SEE THE FUTILITY OF CONTINUING ON HIS PRESENT SELF DIRECTED PATH.

THE SPIRIT OF OUR CREATOR WILL SURELY DRAW MAN TO AN AWARENESS OF HIS GOD.

AND HE WILL AWAKEN FROM HIS SLUMBER AND BECOME WHEAT INSTEAD OF CHAFF.

TURN TO THE HEAVENLY FATHER IN TRUE LOVE AND SEE HIS PRESENCE IN THE TABERNACLE OF MAN.

TODAY IS A SPECIAL CELEBRATION  –  FIVE YEARS OF OUR HOLY MARRIAGE FREE OF PAIN AND CONFUSION.

BUT REALIZE THAT THE TRUE MARRIAGE IS THE FUSION OF THE SPIRIT AND THE SOUL OF MAN.

IT IS THIS SUBMISSION OF THE SOUL TO THE SPIRIT THAT COMPLETES THE CIRCLE OF A LIFE PRODUCING UNION.

IF THE MARRIAGE EXPERIENCE IN THIS LIFE IS HOLY – AND EVEN GOD SAYS IT IS GOOD,

IMAGINE WHAT THE DIVINE ROMANCE WILL BE LIKE AND THE ETERNAL FRUIT IT WILL PRODUCE.

I CAN HARDLY WAIT UNTIL ALL THINGS COME INTO PLACE AS GOD SAID THEY SURELY WOULD.

IT WILL BE AS MUCH OF HEAVEN AS WE CAN CURRENTLY COMPREHEND AND AS WE DARE TRY TO DEDUCE.

CONTINUE TO HOLD MY HAND AS WE WALK DOWN THIS PATH OF LIFE TOGETHER, MY LOVE

AND ALLOW ME TO LOVE AND MINISTER TO GOD AS I LOVE AND CARE FOR YOU.

HE TOLD ME THAT IS MY JOB WHILE I’M SERVING HIM IN OUR LITTLE LOVE NEST WITH YOU AND I SO MUCH IN LOVE.

BUT HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT HE NOW SEES US AS ONE – NO MORE DOES HE SEE TWO.
