What a Sim ple Pleasure
to find last Thursday morning.
I was preparing the coffee pot
and looked out the window,
and right before my eyes
was a simple reminder
that He is mine
and I am
Please excuse the space in the word but, how could I not resist.
The thought come to me to create a heart with the words,
but, I hope you believe me when I say it happened
right before my eyes with hardly no effort at all.
I only had to add the space between simple.
Is that not precious are what?
Most of the time I think
someone else is typing
the words and giving
them to me.
After, almost 24 years with my sweetheart the spark is still there!
I still get butterflies sometimes and he still blushes!
The spark may have dimmed at times and we had to blow
the ember to make it light up again, but we never let it sit
and smolder long. There is where the danger lies.
I've been waiting to share this and I believe this is the perfect time.
A true older southern lady shared with me some ageless advice
from her Home Economics teacher (remember Home Ec.?)
It went something like this-
girls when he comes in from work
have his pipe ready, his coffee cup out, and his slippers waiting
and you have yourself fixed, because he has been at work
all day with pretty girls!
I know things have changed since those days,
but men have not, they still desire the
same attention and respect.
It's not hard doing (that word most women don't like) submitting
when he loves me like Jesus Christ loves His children.
It just saddens me that wonderful
girls and ladies
girls and ladies
have not had the opportunity
and are not experiencing the way
God intended a marriage to work.
Hearts have been broken and lives have
been re-routed. Not what you expected and
not what God intended.
But, HE is your hope!
O Lord, you alone are my hope.
I've trusted you,
O Lord, from childhood.
Psalm 71:5 NLT
