Renewal

September 17, 2014

I sat in the passenger seat.

I sat in the passenger seat of my HusBen’s truck as he drove.

I sat in the passenger seat of my HusBen’s truck as he drove across the bridge.

I sat in the passenger seat of my HusBen’s truck as he drove across the bridge to an unfamiliar place.

and I felt free.

None of this could have happened before.

But there has been a renewal.

I sat there and asked Him, “will it  ever come back?”… in an instant I was surrounded with the most overwhelming love that I have ever felt. His reassurance humbled me.

Every single synap that was once devoted to managing anxiety is now silenced by His Voice.  Where the voice of doubt and fear chattered and planned…now He talks.  He talks now even more than I ever …ever imagined.

I hopped down from the farm truck laughing to friends calling out in surprise, “You’re really here!!!”

We came to celebrate this couple and the renewal of their vows.

Decades of marriage to be celebrated.

These two have come to our Sunday Dinners… seen us at our worst. Laughed  with us through tears.

They love out of the overflow  of a deep love, bubbling up joyfully from Him and the family He has given them.

They have enough to share.

She counsels the broken. He is a treasure hunter. Together they know how to dig deep… to be diligent… to be determined… that the abandoned are often capable of the highest return.

Their love inspires us.

Their parenting is some of the most loving …. we know because they have extended it to us.
