  My birthday was earlier this month and my hubby gave me money. I was so delighted in this gift cause it meant "new hair" new shoes and new clothes! Woohoo! 
For me that is a big deal as I am the typical mother that will take birthday money and spend it on my family and rarely on myself. My husband laid this pile of cash on the ottoman in our family room and gave me strict instructions to spend it 
only on myself.
 I looked at that pile, my heart and my mouth smiled. 
Yes.......... my heart. 
To my embarrassment I truly intended to pick it up immediately but thought..... oh I will get it  before I go to bed,
 which I never did
The next morning I saw it laying there and walked by it immediately distracted and walked out the door to go to work. I came home from work that afternoon, saw it laying there again, and thought GOSH! I better pick it up....I finally did and put it in my wallet (or so I thought). I knew the next day I was going to have an opportunity to spend some of it after work. 
The next morning I grabbed my purse and went off to work at the local elementary school. 
Throughout the morning I was day dreaming about how I was going to spend that money. 
 I need new sandals...........new dress shoes.....
I had strict orders to buy myself some good shoes and I was so looking forward to heading over to the outlet mall after work.
 I went to the outlet mall, got in line to purchase my shoes, opened my wallet and realized that I only had $8. A sinking sick feeling came over me. Here I was in line with 2 pairs of shoes at the Famous Footwear store and almost no money in my wallet. I had my debit card and promptly handed it to the clerk, yet my head was racing with thoughts of 
I remembered that during the day I had left my bag unattended during one of the presentations...
I know....... stupid right?
The feelings of stress were permeating my thoughts, 
going from what would my husband say to me,
 to where could have my money gone,
 to when I left my bag for a moment at work did someone take my wallet? 
and then back to my husband is going to be so disappointed that I lost that money....money is tight these days and he was very generous to me......
how am I going to make up for that lost money?
What could I sell on ebay or craigslist to make up for the money then I wouldn't even have to disappoint him by telling him, I could save face and pretend nothing happened.
When I pulled the car into the garage I noticed that my husband was already home. 
My worry feelings went from my brain to my face....
I walked in the door and he said immediately "what's wrong?" There was no way out...I had to tell him....I stood there and all of the words escaped my mouth as I began to tell the story in a whiny, I can't believe I did it voice....
he just looked at me, looked down at his computer that was on his lap and said "open the card I got you for your birthday, I think it will make you feel better".
 I kept talking, explaining myself, he looked at me, looked at the floor and said again very calmly, "open the card....... I think it will help you feel better about all of this". 
No yelling, no anger, only concern. 
I finally stopped talking and picked the card up off the kitchen table
with a sigh, sat down to open it.

My Wife.....
I can't imagine a more wonderful partner than you to share my life with...
My Friend.....
Thank you for letting me be me,
for loving me as I am,
and understanding me so well....
My Love.....
Forever and always
my heart belongs to you.
Happy Birthday
I love you honey
May your year be filled with joy, health, prosperity ---- and me.
Your White Indian

 I read the beautiful words....and when I got to the last page there was the money.....all of it
I began to feel very emotional thinking about how much my husband loved me.
He said, "I saw the money laying on the ottoman and I picked it up. I didn't want you to lose it." 
He didn't want me to lose out on the opportunity of the blessing, and he didn't say one thing to me. He saw my failure of leaving the gift he had given me and took care of it....
He didn't lecture me
he didn't get mad at me
I kept thinking about his response, 
his kind, warm response.....

Jesus sees our weakness
He sees us in our failure,
It is not hidden from Him,
He never turns away......
He Embraces
He Heals
He Restores

"I have seen his ways, but I WILL HEAL him;
I will restore comfort to him." 
Isaiah 57 :18
