Has it really been thirty three years?  I still feel like I’m that young blushing bride.  I was so excited for this day to come, 33 years ago.  As I was waiting to hear the organ play the introduction to the song I marched down the aisle on, “Here Comes Heaven”, I remember Daddy asking me, “Are you sure about this?  Are you sure you love Nathan enough to live with him the rest of your life”?  I looked him straight in the eye and said, “I’m sure”.  Little did I know at that time how much love can grow.  Looking back, our love for each other that day was nothing compared to what it is now.  All the things you go through together makes love grow deep.  One of the songs sung at our wedding was “Walk Through This World With Me” and that is what we have done.  We have walked together, flown high sometimes, crawled and sometimes just had to stand still, but we’ve had each other.  I’m thankful for the journey and I am looking forward to the future with the man of my dreams.

The past couple of months have been super busy.  I know that everyone is.  I don’t think I’m special. Ha!  Sometimes we get so busy we don’t seem to slow down and smell the roses very often, soooo…..stop for a minute and take a deep breath and smell this beautiful yellow rose.

This is one of the flowers in a beautiful spring bouquet that my husband bought for me a few weeks ago.

I saw her at the stop light today.  She reached up and took the Bluetooth headset off from her ear as she turned toward the neighborhood.  She looked tired from a day at the office and ready to be home.  Home!  I began to wonder about her home.  Would there be little children running to meet her, “Mommy! Mommy!”  Would they jump into her arms and smother her with kisses and give her their little bear hugs?  Or would home be a place where a teenager lived and needed his mother to comfort him from something that happened at the High School today?  Would she walk into the loving arms of a husband and friend?  Would she smell the fragrance of the beef stew she had put into the crock-pot this morning before she left for work?  Or, did she not have time and had to stop by the chicken or pizza place on the way home to have a meal for the family dinner tonight?   Did she know Jesus?  I wondered.  I hoped all these things for her.  I hoped that she found a peaceful place when she walked into her home this evening.  I hoped she had little children that came running to greet her.  I hoped she even had a teenager that needed her.  I hoped she had a loving relationship with her husband.  And I sure hoped she knew Jesus, the best friend of all.  There is no place like home, especially if you have these things and if Jesus is welcomed there. 

Be thankful for your home.  Make it the best place it can possibly be.  Pray that peace and joy reign there.  Make sure that laughter is heard more often than not by the walls of your home.  And, when tears must be shed, make sure that love surrounds the one that is shedding them.  Make sure your home is a sanctuary where the members of your family can come and lay down all the cares from today and feel safe and loved. 

May God bless each of your homes this evening with His presence.

I want to say a big Thank you to our church family for honoring my husband on his birthday. He loves the bookshelf’s. He will now be able to get the rest of his books out of storage. Hopefully we will have it finished this week and you will be able to come by the office and see it for yourself. He was able to get a few books out of storage and put them in the home office when we moved here. However, when you have over 25 years of study books, etc you have collected then that is quite a library. Thanks again! The Pentecostal Church family is AWESOME. You are a blessing to us and we love you dearly.

p.s. The photos did not turn out good so that is why they are not posted. Sorry.
