Thank God for godly husbands!

Several things to report this morning:

First of all, we so enjoyed church this morning. The message was so honest. You don't hear many sermons on Romans 9 because it's controversial. I love when people aren't afraid to talk about the touchy subjects like predestination, sexuality, and parenting... using the bible as the guideline and "go-to" for all such topics, of course.

Secondly, I ordered the Sonlight curriculum last night. I can't wait to get a hold of it. Luke tells me it will be like Christmas all over again. My aunt said she has used it before as well and enjoyed it. I love to read, and my children love books... so this will be a great thing for us, I'm positive. Merikalyn keeps asking when we're going to get all these books and start school. (As if we haven't been learning at all! Ha!)

This weekend was pretty awesome. There were some wonderful, touching moments between my husband and myself, which just filled my heart and made me swoon. Never under estimate the power of honest, loving words..... or small, helpful actions!

The previous week was a crazy one for my Hubby, and there were times when, exhausted, I felt a complaint or two coming on. I had to stop and remind myself that my husband was equally exhausted, if not more, and, while it's nice when he does little helpful things like clean or cook, it's not his job, it's mine.

I realize how important it is to give our thoughts to God and not allow complaining or discouragement take over. Some weeks are easier than others, of course.

I am very fortunate to have a faithful, loving, believing husband who loves to help me. God has transformed him in the span of our marriage, and I am so thankful for that. God is good!

You are a blessed woman, Mandy! I'm curious about Sonlight too. I love the idea but the cost scares me. ;) You'll have to let me know what you think of it.

btw... Keegan is one already? Wow! Happy birthday little guy!
