It's Sunday and I'm in Ohio spending my weekend with my family and friends whom I haven't seen since our wedding two months ago. A blessing indeed!
Today, I'm feeling blessed by...
Some days, you just need a a bowl of mac and cheese or plate of wings to soothe your soul. I'm all about healthy eating, but yesterday when I mentioned a plate of chicken strips sounded oh so good, my Hubby surprised me by coming home from some errands with his bro, with a plate teeming with crispy, chicken-y
goodness and a side of fries. Love him :)
"He's my Boo"
I'm not much of a girly girl, but sometimes you just need some freshly painted nails to make you feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. My MIL bought me this adorable Sephora nail polish set last year on a whim, so today I'm totally rocking, "He's my Boo."
This one's a little heavy, but stay with me, because I promise there's a blessing in all of this.
Someone very close to me confided in me the most awful story I've heard. This girl, who I love dearly, had been sexually abused by someone she thought was a good person, a good friend. The details were graphic and I felt violated simply hearing it. My heart broke for her and my emotions were all over the place.
I needed her to know that his behavior was not okay. That real men do not act that way. That it is not normal for a man to treat a woman as he treated her.
Through such ugliness however, I was able to make out a silver lining: I have been blessed with a husband who is a real man. Who embodies the love of Christ. Who is loving, gentle, tender, attentive, respectful and brave. I am married to a man of God. And it occurred to me, that men like my husband are few and far between. I have done nothing to deserve this kind of love in my life, and yet God has blessed me beyond measure.
Thank you, Jesus, for this love.
Thank you, Chuck, for being this love.
