Sunday Morning Date

Sometimes, it's okay to take a break from the everyday routine and listen to a different direction God is leading you! He knows what you have need of, and He knows how to fill you up!  That's why, yesterday morning, I didn't even think twice about having coffee with my sweat heart, instead of going into service!

We dropped the kids off at Sunday school and then made our way to the church coffee area, right outside of the sanctuary.  We still had our coffees in hand, from our routine Starbucks stop, that morning.  We couldn't take them into the the service, so we sat down to finish them, while we watched worship happening, on the lobby t.v.  

We sipped our coffee, talked, and enjoyed each others company.  We discussed the path of life God has brought us down and glorified Him for the amazing journey He's given us.  We shared how we were struggling and found ways we could help and encourage each other.  We laughed, told story's from our week, and of course, our offspring came up a few times.  Before we knew it, service was letting out and it was time to pick up the kids.

We didn't even know how much we needed that time together, until God gave it to us.  He knew what we were lacking that morning, and I am so thankful for a God who cares about our every need!


I told Erik, in the car after, how important that time was for me.  Time to remember, all the reasons I fell in love with him.  It is so easy to get busy, let everyday life creep in and rob me of the joy, our relationship can be.  Just talking and seeing inside his heart, reminded me how much I love him!
