Love is…

holy experience



Love is…
a cup of fresh hot coffee brought to me in bed every morning.

Especially on this particular day…
If you read my blog regularly you already know about the dreaded boiled egg incident.
(I accidently left the house with a pan of boiled eggs on the stove and came home FOUR hours later to a very stinky, smoke filled house.)
The whole house is now in the process of being repainted and refloored.
One night last week, things were so torn up at home, that hubby sent me to my mama’s to sleep, while he bunked on the floor…actually, the sub floor.
The next morning, as I was lying there in Mama’s spare room, I heard a knock at her back door.
There was my husband, the one who’d spent the night on the floor, with this.

As he does his part…

Ephesians 5:25-26 (Amplified Bible)
”Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her,
Even so husbands should love their wives as [being in a sense] their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.”

I pray that with God’s help, I’m doing mine…

1 Peter 3 (Amp.)

“…you are to feel for him all that reverence includes:

to respect, defer to, revere him--to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him,

that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband.”

 

Still following,
