I would love to tell you that I'm writing this aboard a huge cruise ship heading towards the Bahamas. Can you see the white sandy beach up ahead, turquoise waters and smell the salty air?? Or perhaps snuggled in a log cabin in the mountains, warming up by the fire after a day of skiing, or maybe even flying overseas for the first time, anxiously awaiting the tour of a lifetime. But NOPE, none of these places are where I'm writing from. I'm just at home, like most days, only this one I awoke to an awful noise of dear hubby throwing up in the bathroom that gave me the heebie jeebies! On our 25th wedding anniversary to beat all!!! (How dare he get sick today of all days)!! LOL
Actually, we had made reservations a few wks. ago to take a little trip to Gatlinburg, Tn. for a few days. But last wk. we realized things weren't working out for us to go, so we cancelled, but weren't really sure of the reason. Now we know~I'm so glad we were at home when he got sick instead of stuck in some motel several hrs. from home. The Lord knew ahead of time and I'm so thankful we listened to that 'still small voice'. The voice that tells you things you sometimes don't want to hear, but it's always for your benefit.
I thank the Lord all the time for giving me such a wonderful man all these yrs. He's never gotten mad at me or the kids, he's always loved us w/the kind of love that only God can give. The kind that Christ loved his bride with, the church. So I just want to mention, that even tho' we didn't get to celebrate in the way I had pictured for a long, long time, I'm just so thankful and glad that we have such a wonderful relationship (with the Lord at the head of it) and that we're together today, despite the sick germs.
On the flip side~I've gotten to spend most the day stitching(in between playing nursemaid), which has been really therapeutic for me, and didn't have to do any chores or even fix dinner~ I gave myself the day off. LOL
I hope whether you are single, married or dating, that each of you experiences what TRUE love is all about~the LOVE that God has for each one of us and gave up His Son for us so that we can have a real, true relationship w/Him.
My honey ordered this beautiful cake the other day, good thing or he wouldn't have gotten to eat any of it today.
I ordered this heart spring from a dear friend~ Sheila and as always, she added a few things to the box.Thanks again Sheila, I treasure it all, but esp. our 'online' friendship!
