Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

definition: de·light n. Great pleasure; joy.

Often I think and wonder why God is so good to me. It's amazing to me how He knows the desires of our heart, whether big or small. I remember asking God for a good husband and at certain times thought how wonderful it would be to marry a Pastor's son. I remember thinking as a little girl how I wanted to have boys so I could be a soccer mom and play sports with them. I remember hoping that my children would look like me, at least in some small way...

Well, tonight, after a long day of church and dinner at Grandma and Grandpa T's, we came home to have a snack and play as a family. We shared cheese and crackers, popcorn and some dessert. I was holding my Zachy and watching Sonny and Luke play cars. In that moment, it hit me. My desires were right in front of me. Sonny is a husband like no other. He is loving and amazing and a Pastor's son at that! I have two boys, who are loads of fun, and of which are blond hair and blue eyes. Sonny is very good about reminding me to take pictures so we took a few shots tonight.

Oh, and about my kids looking like me... Well, they are very blond and blue eyed, which is not me, but look at those cheeks! They're mine!

Having great delight or joy in the Lord will bring so much joy to your life!
