He is more than I could ask for in a partner in this adventure of life! The kids and I all get excited when he walks in the door after leaving the office. Why? Because he is fun and kind and gentle and HILARIOUS! Our family is complete when he enters a room. He is also intentional. He loves with all that he has even when he is exhausted with his never-ending workload that he puts to the back of his mind while playing with his kids. I truly respect him for this. He also gives me time. I don’t have to beg for it. No, I won’t go all of Song of Songs on you (you can read it here), but I just needed the world to know that I am truly blessed to be loved by Stevan Sheets! I thank my God for him daily. May I not take him for granted.
Ezra loves to declare these words to me at any given moment of the day. He is quick with his praise and compliments. He is also quick in getting into mischief. He knows he’s done wrong and “does his time” and usually adds, “Mommy, I love you!” or “Mommy, you’re beautiful!”
I wonder if God feels the way I do after I’ve been exasperated by my son’s actions and then hear words of endearment. Does he question my sincerity? Does he wonder if I even understand that I sinned, asked for forgiveness and then acted as if all was normal? Here’s what I do know…no matter what the offense that was committed, my unconditional love for my son will not be diminished. God’s word says that His love for us is unconditional, as well. I’m so thankful for that.
