Loving Being Loved

Yesterday, my husband and I both took the day off, sent the kids to school and hung out together all day. We had so much fun, going out to breakfast, getting groceries, shoes for my daughter. What amazed me the most though was last night the kids were playing quietly together (which is something to savor in itself) and Jason came over and laid down on the couch with me and started playing with my feet. I was just sitting there, looking at him, thinking how absolutely wonderful God was to lead me to this man. (Because I would have married anyone who asked me. After I got miserable enough, I finally consulted God and for the first time, I wanted His will more than my own. God has so rewarded me for that teeny, tiny bit of faith.) My favorite thing about my marriage is I am completely comfortable being me. I am secure in his love for me. And that is because I tested him constantly for the first 5 years of our marriage and he never left. He will be receiving some extra crowns in heaven, because of that, I believe :)

What is your favorite thing about your closest relationships?

Thanks for your comment Jess, I was starting to pout. :)

I love being known too. And it is wonderful to know someone loves you enough to challenge you!

it's that unconditional love thing that gets me the most...and the way he smells...and when I catch him looking at me...and when he speaks so gently yet with such strength...and boy, I love it that he's HOT to boot!!!

My closest relationship (after the Lord) is my husband....although, my sisiter and Julene come in a close second. The thing I love most about them all is pretty much what everyone has already said....I know that no matter what I do, good or bad, they love me and accept me for who I am. Where Erik is concerened, I love knowing that he feels the same way about marriage that I do...it's forever, and no matter how big the bump in the road may be, he is not going anywhere and I am not going anywhere, praise the Lord. I LOVE that my husband loves me!!
