Through my ramblings let me try and just be unedited - me.
The moments to be on two dates in less than twenty four hours = a sweet autumn weekend. The joy of these moments have be freeing. We were able to laugh, walk, go out to eat and just enjoy one another company over an appetizer, sit with hot chocolate while enjoying a football game together, which they won; laugh with the girls when we returned home.
Only to have a full day of the same! Yes date number two - WONDERFUL! More laughs, quiet walks, a nice stake dinner after fall browsing and shopping with princess number five and watching her giggle just to be with us. A bright red balloon tied to her wee little wrists and to be so excited to have new pajamas. :-) Simple pleasures today. But my favorite? Just being with him. Only to be confident that we were hearing one another like the years have given us. JOY!
We didn't need to spend money. We just enjoyed the night and day together. I enjoyed watching him smile over the simpleness to let him know that we could go to a football game and just enjoy the atmosphere. He lit up! He enjoyed the idea but our company - Jesus Christ in the simple pleasure. Also today was the same. Just talk, walk, hold one another hand be quiet and comfortable with knowing we have and continue to share a lot together.We've grown older but that is okay. We've experience a lot together and that is why we are here - LOVE from above. Ministry - wow! Life in marriage, to the love of my life - unending. Persevere. Remain Faithful. Believe. Trust. Take up your cross. Revival. Prepare for the Harvest. Endurance. Love - true agape love! Love that has given us five beautiful Princesses and Princess Hadassah made us smile all day long today.
Allowing us to remember every time all five of them have brought us the same pleasures! Joy through Love and this wisdom they have enlighten us with! She reminded me of all five of them. And now the new seven of them that are connected forever to them! Lord Thank you so much for Kent and all the children you have given me to learn from and now the seven others in another land to connect to these here in our home. I am Blessed and wisdom was with us today Thank You, Abba, Father, God - for I know I have lost a lot here on earth but In YOU we are RICH beyond measure. This little one showed us your wisdom for that I am so humbled.
Yes today and all of yesterday has been sweet and when we sat at our lunch date and our 'server' returned to take our order a precious little princess said, "who's that?" "Taylor" "Sheeee's Perty!" and a grin of approval and a giggle as she sat with us and said, "that's okay!" and she began to "dance" in her seat but with manners.
Today made me think of the road we have traveled with one another for over the last twenty six years and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Today - I just enjoyed the simple pleasures and the wisdom received through a god fearing man and a child and her child like faith with the creation crying out to the Master - Salvation awaits all that choose to pluck it's fruit that lasts for all eternity! Riches of the world mean nothing, when left hurt and all you have is Jesus to cling to you can endure. Love is the greatest of these. Today I know I am loved and can love because he has granted forgiveness to me when I don't deserve it. Thank you Abba for wisdom and how you allowed me to see you through the last forty eight hours.
"Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are reaches and honor. her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tee of life to those who embrace her: those who lay hold of her will be blessed." Proverbs3:13-18 NIV
