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.
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared much about our family. We’ve been in Shippensburg, PA for 8 months now. Although it feels like we just moved in sometimes, our kids walk around the church like they own it so it’s obvious that we’ve put down some roots.
We’re experiencing many firsts here as a rookie solo pastor and his family. I’m teaching my first Children’s Sunday School class, Stevan is teaching and preaching and doing whatever else needs to be done and we’re even leading worship together. Ezra learned to walk soon after moving here and just moved to a toddler bed (sniff sniff) this weekend. He turns 2 in May! Ella loves preschool and talks about her friends daily. She registers for Kindergarten next month (sniff sniff sob). She turns 5 in April!!! To think I was concerned about their transitioning. I think Mommy and Daddy struggled with transitioning more than our kids did.:-)
Thank you, God, for confirmation in special little ways.
Enjoy these clips of our munchkins!
