The day has worn long. We have had a full day of homeschooling, playing, and housework. Sweet Hubby has been down for several days now with an upper respiratory infection. He comes home weary and needing much rest from his day. He needs to heal and healing can only come when we can stop and rest this body. He lays down and sleeps into the evening hours allowing his body to be healed by the Creators hands.
Tonights dinner shall be a quick and easy one. Chicken noodle for Sweet Hubby. Chicken rings and tater tots for good and perfect gift. A protein shake and some fruit for me. Not really much hungry.
We eat in the warmeth of candle light's glow some days. It helps to calm our family and eases us into the night hours. We enjoy each other's company around the table.
Sweet hubby mostly quiet because of him not feeling well at all. Good and perfect gift gives his Daddy the gift of recounting his day to him and all he has learned and played and done with the minutes he has been given. I smile with delight, as I see his blue little eyes that I prayed so hard for light up with enthusiasm with each story he recounts.
At the end of our evening, I bathe good and perfect gift tonight. Sweet Hubby is the one who usually does the bathing. He enjoys serving his wife in this way and it gives him some extra one on one time with good and perfect gift. Tonight is my turn to serve the one who took my hand in his many years ago to be my forever love. Good and perfect gift loves bath time and he plays with a multitude of toys while I bathe this little one who has been entrusted into my loving care to grow and mold into a godly man who loves Jesus more than anything. At times this thought can overwhelm but tonight I'm thinking of enjoying the extra time I get with him.
I get him all dry and he brushes white enamel, sparkling white. He steps into warm jammies and readies himself for storytime. One of our favorite times of the day. We have read to him since he was 6 months old. He loves this time as well as His Daddy and I do. We make it a priority in our home and protect this time with every ounce in our being. For us this is such a holy time. A time to which we can take off the shoes of our day and come before our Father as a family and recount his love for us. We read out of The Jesus Story Book Bible.
