Welcome Home Hubby !
~Hooray ! My Hubby is home after being away for 10 days ! 10 DAYS , I tell you ! He had a wonderful time with our two sons, and their families. During the week he was in the big city of Spokane on business, then back to our youngest son and his precious wife's home, which they are sharing with our oldest son and his 4 daughters. So Hubby got to spend time with 4 of our grandchildren too ! But I missed him....and now he is HOME ! ~Hubby missed out on a family wedding, a wonderful time with my Uncle and Aunt from California, and of course, most important of all, he missed out on time with ME. I missed out on time with him. But now he is home. ~ Hubby is a wonderful husband, and we have been married a very long time. We were high school sweethearts, so we have grown up together. We are growing old together too. But not so old yet ! ~"Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word and to present her to Himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way , husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church -for we are members of His body. "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. " Ephesians 5 :25-33 ~"To sum up, let all be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kind hearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil, or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing."I Peter 3 : 8,9 ~Thank-you Jim, for your loving kindness ,and for loving me. Welcome home !~
