A Reminder

We are excited about going on our family vacation very soon. Today has been a day of packing and organizing. When I walked into my bedroom, I saw something on my bed....

A sobering reminder that I'm being watched! Even when I think I'm not teaching, I am.

God gave us another reminder last night. I was gardening when it started to rain. The sun was still out, so I said to Matt, "Hey, I bet there's a rainbow out front!" We both ran to look. No rainbow. Matt and I searched the clouds, but there wasn't any sign of one. I stood there, and prayed that God would give us a rainbow. Then, we went back to work. Not even two minutes later, we looked again. There wasn't just a rainbow...it was a DOUBLE RAINBOW! I had no time to go get the camera, because we stood there too long, dumbfounded. It was just beautiful!

Ezekiel 1:28 "As the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord..."

He answers prayer above and beyond what we could ever think or ask.

Well, I need to get back to packing, but I had to share one more thing. Joel has been outside doing yardwork. He just came inside for a break. As soon as he turned around, I ran for the camera.

I always knew my husband had a big heart.....but this just confirms it!

He sweated a heart just for me! -gross and cute, all at the same time. :o)

LOL! LOL! LOL! Now that is true love....sweating a heart for you. I guess that says it all, girlfriend!

The note from Mary is precious. You're right, Becky: Mommy's are being watched all the time. A massive responsibility. She wants to be just like you... is that not the BEST compliment ever?

LOL--ask Joel to teach Mike how to sweat like that! :) Have a super fun vacation!

Becky said...

What???! you mean Mike doesn't sweat hearts? :o)

I knew they said a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.... didn't know it was literally. :) And stop trying to be a show off, my husband sweats hearts for me all the time. LOL! Hope you guys had a great time on vacation!!!!
