I Love…

Last night as I drove home from Bible Study my mind was so full.  It was a revealing, powerful, life changing, God moving, blow your mind sort of night. 

I didn’t think God could possible have more to say to me, crazy how I still put Him into a box.

As I walked into our mudroom with all this stuff on my mind, I was met with the soft glow of happy pumpkin faces.

My heart melted.




I stepped into the kitchen and a soft “ohhh” escaped my lips.  In the oven were two trays of pumpkin seeds.

In the few seconds from mudroom to kitchen, God in that hushed moment, opened my eyes.  He showed me that I needed to tell Joel how very much I love him and what an awesome dad he is.

You see, I know he wanted to go bow hunting last night.  He hasn’t been able to get out much at all.  But, instead of grumbling and complaining about having to watch the kids, he had fun with them.  Carving pumpkins, being silly and mixing up a treat. And he graciously let me go to my Bible Study.

I just want to yell for all you ladies to hear…. Hallelujah, thank you Lord for this awesome man you have blessed me with! 

I Love, Love, Love how Joel loves our children.

And I Love, Love, Love, my man with all that is within me. 


Thank you Lord Jesus for blessing me with this man.  He is a precious gift from you.  May I never take for granted what a wonderful man he is!


  1. Amen sista'!!!! We are so very blessed to have lovin' men in our lives. Woohoo!!!

    Nothing like feelin' the love - no matter who you are.

  4. I so miss my ladies Bible study...I felt so special in our group talking about our Lord...alas, I switched churches and they booted me out of my group, so I am on the hunt for a new group...Love the feeling of being so close to Him when I left that study! Beautiful pumpkins!
