Today I'm So In Love.

today i am so in love with jonathan. i've had such a great day thinking of him. you see, i've done nothing more than organize his closet, throw out some of his old tee shirts, sort and fold his clothes. but i could feel him in them. and it may seem small, compared to what others think is satisfying, but me, i feel God in those moments. because what i've been doing today is holy and divine and appointed by Christ to fulfill the needs of my man who works so diligently outside our home to provide us a cushion to raise our heads and hearts. no one sees this part of me. the quiet where i am sitting with my legs folded on the carpet, stained clothes, no make up, folding and folding and folding, and matching pair after pair of socks. but under neath that pile i feel myself rising up. there is God in these moments. there is love poured out.  

my babies are sleeping right now and my biggest is almost home from school. it will be a whirlwind of to-do's before jonathan and i have the chance to sit down tonight and catch our breathes. but when we do, when we sit in the darkness of an organized home, built on the solid foundation of Jesus and His love, it will be so worth all the repetition and effort that gets us there. my heart is so thankful and ready.

Psalm119: 41-48

 Let your love, God, shape my life
      with salvation, exactly as you promised;
   Then I'll be able to stand up to mockery
      because I trusted your Word.
   Don't ever deprive me of truth, not ever—
      your commandments are what I depend on.
   Oh, I'll guard with my life what you've revealed to me,
      guard it now, guard it ever;
   And I'll stride freely through wide open spaces
      as I look for your truth and your wisdom;
   Then I'll tell the world what I find,
      speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed.
   I cherish your commandments—oh, how I love them!—
      relishing every fragment of your counsel.
