Better Together

I cannot be more thankful for a husband like Dave than I have learned to be over the past couple of weeks. From showing up last minute to provide childcare for my MOPS group (and showing up with paper and colored pencils to draw spaceships and race cars with all the kiddos who totally loved him), to buying groceries for my family as we gathered to mourn my grandfather, he has been a strong support for me.

Yesterday, at my grandfather's funeral, the pastor reminded us of the specific blessing of having a spouse in our lives. It is a special blessing, an earthly picture of our loving Father's care of us as we care for each other in this life. I have not felt a deeper, more poignant love than this eros love that God gifts us through a marriage relationship.

Take a moment to praise God for His blessings in your life. Take a moment to tell your family how much you love them. And praise God for our eternal hope in Him.
