>i love the way He loves me…

>What an awesome night it’s been.
I spent time with some wonderful new friends, Benjamin and Bonnie.
They are so sweetly in love.
And after spending time with them tonight, they rekindled my excitement about dating and possibly, one day, being married too.

Their relationship is so obvious… so natural… so refreshing.
After two years of marriage, they still hang on one another’s words, linger in their gazes and enjoy the comfort of each other’s touch. It was so inspiring to me… to share with them, the first night since the scorching entrance of summer that brought a gentle breeze and the promise of Autumn whispering upon it.
It was…. well, romantic!

We had dinner on the patio of one of my favorite restaurants in Belle Meade… enjoying the perfect evening outside… as we shared stories of what’s going on in our lives and how God is so present in each situation. How awesome to give Him the glory on nights like this.

Afterwards, we went for a walk down a street lined with gorgeous homes… through a field full of leaves that crunched beneath our feet as we shared about our home towns. We arrived a few hundred feet from the front porch of the Belle Meade Mansion.
I was just struck by such a real sense of God’s nearness… as they stood hand in hand and I, in the embrace of The Lover of My Soul. It was perfect. They looked deeply into one another’s eyes and grinningly at me, as they re-enacted the scene of their engagement in the exact spot that they stood.
Never has a married couple made me feel more loved than they did tonight. Their love was intoxicating… and enticing to be around. I was blown away by how comfortable they were to be with… and how easy it was to celebrate the joy of this memory with them.

We ended the evening with more deep conversation and a powerful time of prayer… one of my favorite things to do. I can not explain just how perfectly the revelations that the Lord had given each of us, spoke into one another’s lives. God never ceases to amaze me. We were all looking with wide-eyed wonder as He spoke through us… bringing answers and comfort to some of our deepest questions and hurts.
Wow… God!
Thank you.

And then to come home tonight and find that my new Shane and Shane Cd had finally arrived!
Smiling… just when I thought a really special night couldn’t get any better!!!!!!!
I’m so excited…
You know what this means… that I’ll have even more revelations to share…lol.
Alright it’s off to bed with me now… pretty full day tomorrow.
Hope your day was amazing too.

Let’s give Him thanks…
Daddddddy! You are such a wonderful giver of surprises!!!
Thank you for the impromptu plans with Bonnie and Benjamin tonight.
Thank you for the amazing healing that you brought to our hearts tonight as you spoke through each one of us in the most profound ways. Thank you for all of the revelations, dreams and prophetic words that helped to restore and encourage us tonight.
Thank you for the breeze… and the winds of remembrance that brought both great joy… and some sorrow. We lift it all to you tonight.
i am in absolute awe of how You make everyday that is entrusted to You, beautiful!!!!
You’re so perfect and the very best friend I could ever have.
Thank you for holding my hand tonight… and holding my heart at all times.
I feel so safe with you.
And I say YES, Lord. Yes to all that you have for me.
If that includes marriage… then okay.
Thank you for the reminders, lately… of just how beautiful romance can be.
Amazingly, my shattered heart is being healed… as I see your hand in relationships all around me. Yes, Daddy… I believe you… and I trust that I am ready when You are!

i just can’t thank you enough for the way you love.
i love you too.
in Jesus’ Name.
