Jenni took our kids and met up with some of her girl friends and their kids at a cabin yesterday. All moms and kids, and there are a bunch of kids. They won’t be back until tomorrow afternoon. So that means I will have two nights and almost three days of quiet. I’m not the most extroverted guy, but man it sure seems weird being at home without Jenni and Emma and Luke and Drew. I have been able to get some things done, but not that much more than normal. They have been having fun swimming, going down the waterslides, doing paddleboats on the lake, and playing putt-putt.
I am so wonderfully blessed as a husband and a father. I have been working on a message for Sunday about love and respect based on Ephesians 5:33 and the book by Emerson Eggerichs. Even though occasionally Jenni and I have some “intense fellowship”, we always know that our love for each other is strong. What I do love about our relationship is that there are no secrets, we openly share our feelings, thoughts, and struggles. I couldn’t ask for a better wife. Jennifer knows me and respects me as a husband and a father. I’m a blessed and lucky man.
