Last night Kari and I had one of the most serious conversations we've ever had as a couple. Needless to say the details are private. But the conversation was significant. As we finished the conversation, we looked out the windows of the den to check on the approaching Eduardo rain clouds that had been promising to reach Balch Springs. Still no rain. But goodness to be, from one end to the other, there was the most complete and beautiful rainbow I've ever seen in my entire life. It was so complete, there even was a double bow almost like a dropped shadow of the main event. It was Heavenly. I took pictures and have been wanting to sit down today and figure out in PSE how to link them all together to share as one.
God was making a us a promise and it was something special. You can say you don't believe, but that rainbow had been waiting millions of years to happen at just the right moment. We had the shades drawn because it's been so hot here lately. We looked out at just the right time. And it was tremendous. Not in another million years will there be a rainbow as perfect as the one we saw last night as we stepped out our front door.
I love you, honey. I pray for you every day and want you to know how special you are to me. Many times I don't express to you how much I appreciate what you're doing here with the kids while I'm out in the world doing my job. Raising a child is hard work. Raising seven one week, and only four the next is what one of my friends recently said is "insane." But you're doing a great job. We have some really great kids in this family. They are well behaved. They know they're all loved and cared for completely. And we have a great roof over their heads, and blessing from God that are second to none.
You're sleeping now, having gone to bed early. I'm going to spend some more time trying to squeeze the details of my our new projects into this Mac keyboard before I go to sleep. May you only have the sweetest of dreams and get some good rest free of children coming to you wanting something.
