My wonderful Husband

I just wanted to say that I have a wonderful husband. He is such a wonderful man who works so hard and gives so much. He is kind, thoughtful and compassionate. I am thankful that the Lord led us together and that He has allowed us to grow closer together and closer to Him. I am thankful for his leadership in our relationship and for desire to serve the Lord in his life.

Last week, Heston bought me a special gift, just because. It was a beautiful right hand diamond ring. I have always wanted one and he found one and surprised me! He said it wasn't much, but boy was he wrong...even the thought behind the gift was enough for me to realize what a special husband I have! Thanks, Babe...I love you very much!

Then, I came home from work yesterday, and Heston yells "something is done, wife" (that is his name of endearment for me "wife") and I go into the main bathroom and he tore out the old floor and laid down the new floor, all in one afternoon. What an amazing man! I am so thankful for him and his hard work. I am also thankful for the skills that he has. He has saved us so much money with the little repairs that he can do on our house. He is also in the process of building a retaining wall on the side of our house. It looks great already! The entry way floor is the project for this weekend.

The Lord is taking us through some things that are really causing us to trust in Him completely. I know this is where He wants us and often times God uses different circumstances in our lives to cause us to rely on Him and trust in Him completely. We are thankful for these times and are thankful that God is in control and He knows what is best for our lives. I am so glad we can rest secure in that!

Yes, Maggie and Madeline will be soon sharing a bedroom...SCARY!! We were going to take the plunge last night after they got the bed together, but since Maggie was sick, we are going to wait a few days. Okay, when I clicked on your comment, it took me to your profile page, where I clicked on "Kelli's Creations." I had no idea that you did all of that!!! You do beautiful stuff! I will definitely hint to Rob at Christmas time!! Where are you selling stuff at? You should take your jewelry to some of the boutiques downtown Iron Mountain and Norway. Believe it or not, some of them have some pretty cool stuff! I am impressed with your many talents!

Do you still teach the 2 & 3 year olds Sunday School class? If you do, Kara and Lydia will be in it for Mother's Day -- We are excited to be at Grace again even though it's only for one day.
