Feast of Love


My hot drummer husband has been gone for 7 of the last 10 days on business trips. I have been one sad and scatterbrained girl!

Last week I had planned out a special dinner for that guy to come into the house and smell and drool over. What man doesn't love a nicely marinated hunk of steak, some grilled asparagus with butter and lemon, and some crusty ciabatta bread?!!!

So, I go to pull the steak out of the freezer early in the day and, UH OH! I see that it has turned a greenish-brown. That does not look right... Great, now what do I do? I really could have rushed everyone off to the store, but for the fact that 2 of the 3 girls were asleep and I had been cleaning all morning.

I text my hubby to share my woeful story with him and this is what the dear man says to me:

"Seeing you will be dinner enough"

Oh My GOSHNESS. That gave my heart a jumpstart! I loved him up extra good that night ;-D But don't ask me what I made for dinner!

Now today my husband has returned from his second trip and I'm making good ol' homemade macaroni and cheese, a light salad, and a strawberry~rhubarb crisp. Simple, yet yummy, and made with love.

I feast on the love he gives to me. I am a better woman because of this man's tender care of me. I have want of nothing else.

My heart is full.

I love to see Christian couples in love. I am so happy for you. The world wants all to believe that true romance can only be found with unmarried couples. God promises so many blessings for the believer. One of them is lasting love in a joyful marriage, when both peope are seeking Him. Hugs, Kathi

This is FAR better than any old romance novel, if you ask me!

Knowing your hubby, this doesn't surprise me. However, I love to hear of your delight in him and his in you. What a testimony of Jesus abiding within you both. What a sweet example of His redeeming, tender love for His bride and her response to Him.
