14 wonderful years today

look at all my presents!! yes, today we have been married for 14 years. wonderful wonderful thankful years.thank you Lord! God has been so faithful in our lives and has been faithful to every one of His promises to us. we got married at 20 (yes, i am 34 and j too) on God's pomise that we will live in houses full of things that we did not gather. (Deut 6:11) and on the promise of Isa 42:16 that says I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known. I will make darkness into light before them and make uneven places into a plain. These things I have determined to do [for them]; and I will not leave them forsaken. so today i can say with all confidence in my God that He that have brought us thus far will lead us on. i am thankful, grateful, humbled. my heart overflows. thanks Lord, you are worthy to be praised. :)
so, i told j that any little thing will make me happy. just go to shoppers. i just love that shop. anything in it will do. and then this morning i get this package with a card that says: "just because little things make you happy"and all these wonderful things!!!! to me he actually said the following:
1. i am a domestic godess. go martha!! (i love this ex con's cooking)
2. i am still sexy (shania's equal, no doubt)
3. keep on brushing (oral bee)
4. i keep on getting younger (keep popping those vitamins - tablet crusher)
5. it's ok... i can indulge a bit (the novel)
don't you think its wonderful? ok, i'll stop. so, today, i am cooking his fav food: lamb stew and veg. tonight is the play: REMEMBER YOU ARE INVITED!!! j only works till 3, so i am glad he has a little time off today. as i am writing i keep on thinking of Psalm 45
A wedding song of the sons of Korah. My heart bursts its banks, spilling beauty and goodness. I pour it out in a poem to the king, shaping the river into words: "You're the handsomest of men; every word from your lips is sheer grace, and God has blessed you, blessed you so much. Strap your sword to your side, warrior! Accept praise! Accept due honor! Ride majestically! Ride triumphantly! Ride on the side of truth! Ride for the righteous meek! "Your instructions are glow-in-the-dark; you shoot sharp arrows Into enemy hearts; the king's foes lie down in the dust, beaten. "Your throne is God's throne, ever and always; The scepter of your royal rule measures right living. You love the right and hate the wrong. And that is why God, your very own God, poured fragrant oil on your head, Marking you out as king from among your dear companions. "Your ozone-drenched garments are fragrant with mountain breeze. Chamber music--from the throne room-- makes you want to dance.

Thanks for being an example and an inspiration. Love ya tons, me
