(Giving Thanks for Being in Love!)
This man of mine, Oh how he fills my heart!
I was able to spend so much of my day yesterday just resting, sleeping, and trying here and there to gently take care of one or two household things. My hubby (who worries about me far to much, yet I love him for it) stayed home from church with me last night. I begged him to go with our kids, and go to church. Yet his reply was "what if your legs get to hurting much worse and you need help with.....or......, I'm staying home so I can take care of you tonight"!
Oh how I luv this man of mine!
I am not crippled...yet, LOL, but he worries far to much, and wants to try and do way to much for me at times. I know that there is going to come a time when, he WILL have to do much, much more for me, than he does now, yet I still want to try and do all I can, while I can, even with so very much pain. I have always been an independent gal, with a little stubbornness thrown into the mix. Still, I do so luv this gentle, big bear of a man, whose is strong as a bear, and gentle as God himself (when it comes to me and our children), kind, loving, caring, compassionate, and always my protector. He gives so much of himself, yet asking nothing in return except to know that I will always love him. NOT A PROBLEM I CAN TELL YA'! So he gave up his mid-week church service to stay home and take care of me. Funny part about this was, after being in such pain for two days, not being able to sleep through the night, Monday night, I fell asleep in my recliner about 7:45 or so he said. Yet, my protector was there my side, ever watchful, having thrown a blanket over me to keep me warm. I luv this man!!! Jesus Christ, my sweet Lord, has been so kind and good to me. What a wonderful man He has given to me for my Best Friend, Husband, Lover, Soul Mate, my EVERYTHING! I am so very grateful to God my Father, for having looked through the ages, and having known just who I needed for my husband, and in-return knowing who Bob would need for a wife. Even though, when Bob and I met we were both teenagers in our senior year of high school, both lost in sin. He hadn't been in church since he was a child, and I hadn't been to church much at all in my life, except for those wonderful times when I lived with my grandparents in Alabama. God knew that we would be, are, and always will be THE perfect match for each other. God must have known that we would, in His perfect timing, come to accept Jesus Christ as our Personal Savior, and raise our family in church, and in His will. God knew with whom we needed to be matched, so as to bring out the best in each other (and sometimes the *not so best* , LOL), yet a perfect match none the less, by the hand of God himself. For this perfect matching of two souls, together, forever in marriage, by God's plan, will and design, I will forever be grateful.
Oh how I love this man of mine!
Can you read the caption under this picture? It says..."One Heart to Another", I luv this.
As I sit here, typing this, with tears flowing down my cheeks, I can't help but to wonder, if up in heaven My Loving Lord is truly aware of how thankful I am for Bob? Just like the first song on the play list today..."Somewhere in Time", I am so glad God knew that "somewhere in time", he would give me the best gift (besides eternal life), the gift of Bob as my husband, partner, perfect heart match. I only wish his family, and so many others in our life, could know what a wonderful man he truly is. Yet no amount of my bragging, or my telling of his love for me, and mine for him, I fear, will ever be enough for them to truly know just what a loving, generous, kind, caring, and gentle man he is. But that is OK, I know, God in Heaven knows, and our children know. The tears that overflow at times, are from the depths of my heart and soul, from all the fullness of my love for him. I stand amazed and in deep wonderment sometimes, looking at this husband of mine, and think how blessed I am, and often giggle because I think, I got the better end of the deal in this marriage, LOL. Though, putting all laughter aside, he tells me consistently, and regularly, that he feels the same way about me. Oh how lucky I am, what a blessed woman I am to have been given such deep, abiding, and unconditional love from such a wonderful man. He loves me in every way, even with all my faults, and now my difficult health problems that will no doubt in the future cause me to have to rely on him even the more. Yet he knows this, and what is to come, and still smiles and says "I love you, and I will always love you and take care of you, you are my life and my hearts desire"! What a blessed woman I am to have been given such a love like this.
To think that somewhere in time, Bob & I were meant to be together for all time. How Good God is, and how Thankful I am for my husband.
This picture was taken last year just before Christmas. My hubby has now lost 74 pounds since then. I am so very proud of him. He loves my cooking, but says he wanted and needed to loose weight for health reasons, but he says that it is mostly so that he will be in better health so he will always be around to take care of me and to love me. I luv this man!!!
Thank you for indulging me today, as I shared and poured out my heart about Bob, his love for me & mine for him, and being thankful, grateful, sentimental, in-love, and emotional, while typing with my tear filled eyes and words. I often have a need to write down all that I feel for this man, or my children, or others for whom I dearly love. This is part of why this blog is so very important to me. A place where I can write about and share.....everything. Today I am just so full of heart and soul due to such love which I am so very blessed to receive from my loving husband.
Thank you dear friends who come by and take time to read and also share with me. I appreciate you all so very much.
I have a question for you (as I often do, from time to time). How do you feel about the man God has given to you? Do you *overflow* with love for that man? Are you STILL in love with him? How does he know you are still in love with him? Loving someone and BEING in love with someone are two very different things. Do you convey the right one to your husband? Do you appreciate him? Have you ever thought about sitting down and writing to him about how much you love him? Have you ever stopped to write him a love letter...Lately? think about these things, give the love letter writing a try. He will truly love it. I promise. Men like to know that we are in love with them, and not just comfortable with letting them *provide for us*. do you know what I mean? give these things some thought, prayer, and action.
Have a Blessed day and an even better marriage. God Bless.
Love & Prayers,
Have A Peachy Keen Day.
