Yes, this is a mushy "I-love-my-husband-to-Jesus-and-back" so if that's not your "thang" you might want to keep on keeping on with another blog today.
Plainly stated- My husband rocks. He is so amazing.
So what warrants all this love for my better half?
I just slept for a glorious 11.5 hours.
Yes, I've slept for almost half a day.
See, I've been having a really rough week. Just feeling "blah" and exhausted by the time I get home.
Partly because we had a busy weekend last week and I just never had the chance to catch up.
And partly because life can be, well, exhausting!
Yesterday when I came home I had the worst migraine. I tried to get in some quality time with Phillip and Carl and all I could do was lay on the couch. I was still able to carry on a convo with Carl and play with Phillip and his cars, but most of the time my eyes were closed and I was trying me best to just be still.
It was horrible.
Carl fed Phillip dinner and gave him a bath.
Me? I moved from the couch to the bed.
Carl got Phillip dressed for bedtime.
We both read Phillip a book and said bedtime prayers.
I returned to the bed. I have no idea what Carl did because the next time I saw him he was leaving for his men's ministry.
This man had to fend for himself last night. Don't get it twisted, he is perfectly capable of handling things on his own. I try my best to bless him with home cooked meals as much as I can. But last night? It was a no go.
So after fending for himself, he woke up at 5:30 this morning to head over to the men's ministry.
Because in addition to working 40+ hours a week, he also plays music for the men's worship team. Every night he practices the new line up. On Saturdays he leaves before dawn to help prep and lead the men in worship.
I am so proud of him. He loves to play music but usually only just in front of family. And singing? I think he's only sang in front of his home church when he was a boy and me. So basically just his immediate family.
Now? He's front of 20+ men every Saturday bringing praise and glory to God.
God called him and he stepped up like a man should.
And Sundays? He's at church by 6am to help with the set up (tables, chairs, stage, tents).
I can't remember the last time this man slept in!
I've tried asking him if he'd rather stay home one morning- I mean the guys won't really miss him that much if he misses ONE day.
He turned it down. He loves being with the guys and praising God. It's a nice change from hanging with the guys at a bar or BBQ talking about, well, other things than God.
He's not just playing music and setting up equipment- he's building relationships with other men of God.
And he does it all with a joyful heart.
While letting me sleep in.
