laundry in a whole new light...

the light of a brand new day, brought me thoughts of many blessings...



and laundry in whole new light...


sounds of laundry in the house...
testimony of life bein lived...
a sign of life...
of hard, provider work: of a best friend husband, dad, papaw...
it says, "let me show you, prove to you I love you - and be your provider...
let me become hot, cold, wet, dusty, sweaty, filthy,
bent
for you
the people i cherish, love
so that you will have this haven home
with all it's provision fullness of peace, laughter, love..."
and me, as wife, home maker, mom, mamaw...
i take the love covered garments
of this man i love more than any other human...
lovingly cleanse them
fresh...
carefully folding...
preparing them for my loving provider
for the next time he embraces me long
and leaves my sleepy arms...
lunchbox in hand
out the door, to live out his love for me, for his family...
does he feel my love gratitude
as he wraps fluffy towel
around tired, sometimes aching frame?
breath in fragrance of my love for him?
God has given him...
i have found the one my heart loves...
i am my beloved's and he is mine...
