He Will Husband You…

 

 

I am sorry if I sound redundant concerning parenting and kids…I feel like I express to you the “hardness”, if you will, of being a mommy…

It’s just that….hmmm…

It’s really hard šŸ™‚

The other day I was trying to pray as I was driving down the road…trying to stay focused…so many times my prayers are little sentences and concerns and requests interrupted by random thoughts or someone screaming in the back seat…

And I honestly just told God that I feel like my vision for motherhood is waning…I told Him how hard it has been…and how sometimes I just want ten minutes to stare at a wall or to go pee without someone by my side or scream a cuss word to the top of my lungs…I told Him how desperately I need His help…

How I need Him to Husband me…

I love where in Isaiah 54:5 it says, “For your Maker is your husband…the Lord Almighty is His name…”

I need Him to lovingly cover me with His feathers, and under His wings give me refuge…(Psalm 91:4)…to restore my strength and love and patience…to take my hand in His strong hand and be my rock…to husband me…

Praise Him who faithfully answers our prayers…

That day He did in numerous ways renew my strength…He put a smile on my face and joy in my heart…a renewed love for my children…

If you are feeling zapped and empty…Go to your one true Father…your one true Husband…He is the only one that can give you exactly what you need…the only One that can cover you with His soft downy feathers and lead you so tenderly…

I hope you have a marvelous weekend sweet ones!!!!

Much Love to You!!

The Eagle and Child was a pub in Oxford England where C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Owen Barfield and other writers would meet 1 or 2 times a week…They were called The Inklings

They nick-named the pub Bird and Baby

It was a little society of their own…where they would discuss the happeningsĀ of that day…they would share their most top secret manuscripts…they would encourage one another…probably downed one or two beverages while puffing on aĀ pipe, all the timeĀ discussing deep matters that expand the mind and soothe the soul…

Oh…to be a fly on that wall…

Or to have been invited by Lewis himself…

Sometimes I really long for stuff like that…deep, meaningful, thoughtful conversations with people who love God as much or preferably more than I do…to be steeped in the richness of Jesus with others…to have thought provoking, intelligent conversation about real stuff…

That sounds so much better than sitting around eating chips and hearing people talk about Alabama football…Doesn’t it? ( not that talking about football is bad…but it just seems like everywhere I go…thats all people talk about)

It shows so much of how easily pleased people are these days…

Where are our souls? Our passion? Our desires?

In the words of Lewis himself…” It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak.”

Just a little thought for you this Sunday afternoon…

I would love to visit that pub one day and soak in that place…

Have a great Week!!!

P.S. I’m sorry the posts are fewer and further between…I write when I have time…which is rare these days :)….thanks for continuing to read…

I can already see how different all three of them are going to be…

My prediction…

Maris: independent, smart, people person, ALWAYS WANTING TO DO SOMETHING THAT INVOLVES LOTS OF ENERGY, compassionate

Davis: easy-going but stubborn, a little temper, my artistic one, a little lazy, lovable and cuddly, not too great at math and sciences

Mac: (from limited observation…only 3 months old) happy, happy, happy, likes to eat, he might be the one really into sports… Lord help me…

We are loving these hot summer days…Maris is so brown…Davis is almost 15 months and still crusin all over those sweet knees of his…and Mac is…well…eating a lot…

I hope your summer is giving you some sweet memories!!!

Love to You!

Happy Wedding

 

Tis the season for weddings…

Me and Daniel went to one two weekends ago…

Weddings used to be an occasion where I would sit and take mental notes on what I would like or not like in my own wedding and dream about that day and that man…

Now it is an occasion where I can listen to the vows again and again and be so sweetly reminded of how sacred and important they are…and marriage is…

When the bride started down the aisle, she looked so incredibly happy…her family looked so happy…the blessing the minister gave them was so powerful and beautiful…The whole congregation seemed just so happy for them…( I’m sorry I used the word happy 3 times…it just fits this wedding)….

The reception was nice…Daniel got to see some old friends and I stood around feeling awkward and insecure because I knew maybe 5 people there…( you know those times where you want to look like you are so with it and have it all together…but like…that makes you look even more dumb…and you don’t really know what to do with your arms and how to stand…yeah…)…there was a band and dancing, although I didn’t see many people dancing…You know there are those weddings you feel comfortable getting out and looking like an idiot while you dance…and some you don’t…

Besides those weird moments…I love weddings…

Not to mention the royal wedding a few months ago…Everything was so dramatic and spectacular…Her dress was so breathtaking…I could not imagine being a guest at that wedding…I’d be freaking out…me and my spectacular hat.. šŸ™‚

And it is a huge reminder of THE wedding….there will be a wedding in Heaven one day…one wear the ChurchĀ is presented to Christ…and it will be the most spectacularĀ event we could ever fathom…I will not feel awkward and not know what to do with my arms…I won’t feel weird and unsocial because I don’t know many people….There will be such a celebration…flowers so gorgeous…A feast of marvelous food…And I’m sure…lotsĀ and lotsĀ dancing!!!! Have you thought about that event?? The beauty of that day….?

That will be THE Royal Wedding…THE happiest wedding ever…

I hope your week is off to aĀ Happy start!!!

Much Much Much Love!
