When You Got a Good Thing (Lady Antebellum – Click and listen.)
Yes, I confess to being a sappy love song junkie. Lady Antebellum wins this week’s award for most replayed group on my ipod. I especially like “When You Got a Good Thing”. Maybe it’s because this week my husband and I will celebrate 32 years of marriage. Maybe it’s because he caused me to stop my lawn mower dead in its tracks when I looked up and saw him in his cowboy hat as he washed the RV. It was one of those “Song of Solomon moments”, ladies! Whatever it was that kept that song on my mind I’m glad it was there to remind me of how blessed I am.
I am blessed to have a man who:
loves me even when I am unlovable
is a wonderful example for his children and grandchildren
takes care of himself so that he looks good and feels good (and you can take that however you like.)
is my very best friend
works hard to provide a living not only for our family, but also for so many others
loves God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength.
There’s gonna be some ups and downs, but with him to wrap my arms around I’m fine.He is the one who keeps bringing out the best in me – the one I need even more than the air I breathe. He makes me laugh when I want to cry. This will last forever, I just know. When the ground starts shaking it’s good to know I’ve got a good thing and I’m holding tight.
So, thank you, God, for blessing me. No, for spoiling me! Your blessings just keep flowing my way and I am overwhelmed. Even on those days when things aren’t just right, all I have to do is look around me to see evidence of your love. Thank you for giving Ron to me and allowing us to linger together in your love.
