At bedtime, after prayers and when he usually asks me to give him math problems or tell him a story from my childhood, my 6-year-old asked, “Why did you and Mom decided to get married?”
Twenty minutes later I wrapped up the story and he said, “Wow! I think that was the longest story you ever told me.”
Yeah. I love his mother.
You’re familiar with the Christmas story, right?
Yep. It starts at John 3:16.
He wanted to build Her a cabin, one that they could grow old in. Raise a family, have dinner conversations that would last through the night. He wanted to have a place that He could teach His son how to live and love, how to treat others and trust God; a place where He could teach His daughter to see life as something that is beautiful, where He could spin her around and create inside jokes that would last a life time with His little girl. He wanted a place that overlooked a lake so that He could spend misty mornings with His wife, holding Her hand and standing still. He wanted to have a house that could hold family for the holidays, one that would be filled with laughter and the smell of coffee. He wanted to build a place that held memories of love, tears and redemption.
He wanted a home and He wanted it with Her."
