What would come to your mind if someone said that you won, "Queen For a Day"? Shopping trips, manis, pedis, being waited on hand and foot, and maybe a special dinner ~ those things are all splendid! (Anyone who would like to offer these things is welcome to!)
It was a normal day; I had coffee with my husband, he went to work and then our school day (homeschool) began. All went well and then... the hubs came home. We had a chat and he said, "If you are tired, go take a nap. I'll take care of dinner when you get up. So what do you have planned for today?"
(Now, it would be a normal thing for him to cook dinner but I made lunch and dinner menus for the whole week this week so he wanted to keep true to my schedule.)
I read my Bible and took a nap. (It's wonderful going to sleep with the Word on your mind!) Before I knew it, my husband came to me and said, "It is time to get up my Queen! Your coffee is ready and dinner is almost done." (Huh??? The nap is over already?)
I got up and went to the kitchen to get my coffee. To my surprise, there was a dozen roses sitting on the counter! "For me??!!!" (Smile! Like they would be for one of the 3 men in our house.)
My husband told me to sit at the table and he got the boys and brought them in. He proceeded and read Scripture to all of us, making sure the boys were paying attention and understanding.
Provers 31:26-30She opens her mouth in wisdom,And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.She looks well to the ways of her household,And does not eat the bread of idleness.Her children rise up and bless her;Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:"Many daughters have done nobly,But you excel them all."Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Oh how romantic! As if that weren't enough, hubs told the boys to, "Praise your mother! Tell her all of the things that she does that you are thankful for."
After that oooee, gooey desert of beautiful words, I was told to get my coffee, go sit on the couch and watch some TV. (Ok, that's weird because I don't usually watch TV.) Then he told the boys, "I am going to finish cooking dinner, your mom is going to watch TV and the two of you are going to do the dishes!"
Did I take a long nap and wake up on Christmas Eve?
Well, he didn't get any arguments from me! (What did I watch? Uhhhh, nothing. I channel surfed but that's not the point!)
I was served a wonderful dinner and ate it with my loving men.
After dinner, I went and put on a new outfit (that always makes one feel great... looking anyway), my family got dressed, and we left for church. (The mega church that we attend~ not our church.)
The music was rockin and we just praised God all night! The pastor preached the Word and God spoke. The Holy Spirit was there. Church went loooonnngggg (WHICH I LOVE!) and we were able to spend some time with close friends after.
I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful evening!
God is soooo goooooood!
