Last Wednesday night after getting home from church and (finally!) getting all the kids in bed I collapsed on the couch, put my feet up and sighed deep…weary, worn and weak my husband said to me…what does your week look like next week?
Ugh. Really?! I just got through today!?
I sighed, yet again, and pulled out my phone…because lets face it…if it isn’t in there, it’s not happening. I started off umpteen things I had scheduled. He let me ramble a little and stopped me about mid-way through and said…Well, you’re going to have to make some changes.
Excuse me!? Um…noooo!
Well, he said, I’m taking you away and I’ve already booked the hotel. It’s our fifteenth anniversary…sooo…it’s kind of a big deal.
I was shocked! He even arranged for whom the littles were going to stay with. I don’t think he’s ever done that?! What a man!
Right now we are on our way to my favorite place on earth…Traverse City, Michigan. Ya’ll know I’m mitten smitten. I get my man all to myself in this beautiful state for 3.whole.days!! E-lated my friends! We have today. And I am so grateful!
We went to a beautiful family wedding a few weeks ago and I was so filled with excitement for the new Mr. and Mrs…and such deep, reverent gratitude for God’s grace in our marriage. It’s been quite a ride with lots of twists and turns and bumps along the way. God allowed us to bend…but because of His strength alone we did not break…and it’s all because Him. I am so grateful that God gave me this gift…He made this man for me to do life with. Fifteen years ago today and 3 kiddos later…today and everyday…I still do, Baby!
Bring on tomorrow…because we have today!
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
