“Good Morning” he says casually, as they pass in the hallway at work. “Good morning!” she replied a little too cheerfully, hoping he didn’t notice her cheeks turning pink. Man. She thinks. What is my deal?! This is crazy. I’m married. HAPPILY married. Why does my stomach flip-flop every time I see this guy? Why do I catch myself wondering how I look, if he’s around? Thinking twice before I speak out if he’s there? Why is this happening? This has never happened to me before. I’m married! After a couple of days where the friendly smiles gradually turned into…
We just celebrated 43 years of marriage and today I’m counting my blessings. Often I am a recipient of in-house inspiration from my husband, Bill. He’s one of those wonderful men who cares and is kind not only to me but to those he is associated with. He brings flowers and butterfingers to inspire me (LOL-laugh out loud!) When you have in-house inspiration it tends to spills over to the world outside your front door. Homes should be safe havens where discouraging words are seldom heard. The word “inspire” means, a) to breathe or blow into, b) to infuse life, etc. When I’ve had the breath knocked out of me God has given me a help-meet who infuses life back into me. “Husbands love your wives even as Christ also loved the church; and gave himself for it;” (Ephesians 5:25 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
Prayer: Lord, I thank You so much for giving me a loving husband. Help me to give back the same in-house inspiration to him that he lovingly gives to me. Bill reminds me of You, Lord, and today I want to say a great big Thank You for allowing me to share life with him! Amen.
