Mr. Roy and I (mostly Mr. Roy) just finished redoing our laundry room. Picture old vinyl flooring, shutters on the window and open shelving on the walls. U-G-L-Y! New ceramic tile on the floor, new lighting, new paint on the walls, new curtains, new cabinets and it's a thing of beauty. Mr. Roy and I seem to be in perpetual fix-it-up mode; Lowe's is our favorite place to browse and dream.
But the real home improvement around our house came a few years ago when the Lord got hold of Mr. Roy and brought him closer. It is magnificent to know I am serving the Lord beside my husband. I sometimes am moved to tears with joy sitting in church beside my husband instead of with my friends whose husbands also stay at home on Sunday. I love to pray with Mr. Roy, coming before the Lord's throne in unity as God intended. And while Mr. Roy and I are in perpetual fix-it-up mode in this aspect of our lives, too, that's okay because we are doing it together.
Life is good. Thank you, Lord.
