a picture worth…..

if i am disciplined enough or just decide to get out of bed early and go into our bathroom, this is what i find……

this picture speaks volumes to me.  it means to me:

  • I am loved
  • i am cherished
  • i am pursued
  • i am provided for
  • i am secure
  • i am growing
  • i am safe
  • i am challenged
  • i am encouraged
  • i am sometimes rebuked
  • i am called to a higher purpose
  • i can trust my heart
  • i can hear god
  • god answers prayers

these {not so} little toes are a sign that my precious husband is on his knees praying, praising and worshipping our god.  this man sets such an example for me in rising 2 hours before his needed time to get to work, so that he has plenty of time with our lord….he has relegated himself to his closet so that he doesn’t wake me….what he doesn’t know is that he wakes me at 4:30 almost every morning with his sliding down on his knees to the side of his bed to pray–before he goes in his closet to pray…..

this picture makes my heart sing and dance…knowing that god so graciously sent an angel of a man to take the job of covering me and my children in such a time of need.  there are really not enough or good enough words to describe what this picture really means to me…..

Oh wow! I have to admit at first I thought it was a child’s fingers under the bathroom door (I see that a lot) but knew it didn’t look quite right. (duh Sheri!)
