Love

6 Feb

My heart has been so overwhelmed with love lately. ❤️

You know, I wish I had time (I guess I could make time, but whatever) to blog every week. But life is just so busy and I just don’t make time like I should; resulting in blog posts such as this one that are filled with random thoughts.

These random thoughts, the ones that have been filling my heart and mind lately, come gushing like a word-waterfall and then all my dedicated readers (are there any???) read my posts and are left feeling overwhelmed by my word vomit. Okay, that was a run-on sentence. Sorry. Ahhhh.

So back to the beginning, the actual reason for this post. A few Saturday’s ago in one of my Graduate classes we talked about different movies and how we could use the theme of specific movies to tell our story. One of the movies was The Lego Movie, and the theme was “everything is awesome!” As I sat there, telling about the positive aspects in my life I realized that everything I was describing was truth. Though the theme of everything being awesome and wonderful seemed silly and unrealistic, I was inspired. It clicked right then and there that there are so many things I have to thank God for in my life.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I do NOT want this blog post to come across that I have the perfect life, because I DON’T. I have internal struggles with worry and fear, stresses about finances and the future, and I’ve suffered incredible loss of loved ones. But sitting there that day, telling a complete stranger about all the wonderful things in my life, I knew that the good is what God desires that we focus on.

Since it is inching ever so closely to Valentine’s Day let me just talk about the love of my life. My husband. My soulmate. My heart.

When I was a little girl I always dreamed of marrying my Prince Charming and living happily ever after. When I was a teenager, lonely and broken hearted, I made a list of all the traits I would want in a future husband.

Guess what! I found him.

I found my prince, the man God made for me, the one who exceeded every expectation.

Now let’s also take into account the fact that God made Houston EXTRA patient because He knew I would be a handful. I mean, God is all-knowing! 😉

My husband is loving in every sense of the word. He is good. He is kind. He is selfless. He works hard. He is more than I could have ever wanted, and everything I need.

Yes, I realize this is very mushy. But when you love someone so much, you can’t help but tell the world how wonderful they are.

Our love and our marriage never ceases to bring my thoughts and heart back to God. Back to our Savior, the One who gave us the ability to love. The One who’s love for US is far greater than our human minds could comprehend. The Creator, the King of Kings, the good, good Father.

My heart could just burst.

My life isn’t perfect, my marriage isn’t perfect; but it is wonderful despite the trials and God has poured out His blessings in more ways than I could count.

Find ways to look for the good in YOUR life today. You’ll be amazed at how much your perspective will change when you do.

Blessings,

Mrs. Hannah D. 🖤
