Thankful Thursday-Blooming Surprises

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her." Ephesians 5:25

Wearing stuck-on sweat from a long day at the fair I barely stopped to kiss my husband on my way to the shower. Single minded thoughts of clean drove me there directly and I lingered under refreshing man-made rain. Then hunger voiced its presence.

Toweled dry I scurried to the darkened bedroom--sunset dark causing me to scramble blind for the light. Switched-on glow awakened me to red velvet blossoms scrolled open and set out upon my vanity--blooming surprises that caused an audible squeal. And I hurried to the Giver.

Down the stairs and around the corner, the Giver--my husband, set dinner on the table and held my chair. A dozen more blooms, gathered in love, were set before me.

My heart quickened as my husband served me and poured the wine.

On this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for:
  • A godly, serving husband
  • Blooming surprises
  • Candle lit dinners
Your turn. Won't you share with us God's surprises toward you today? What are you thankful for? How as God lavished his love on you today?
