The Stuff of a Long Lasting Marriage......

The famous fall photo of boots......
Instead of a red holiday cup of Starbucks
 in my hand a red rake.
The work boots are nowhere in the cute category.
I took the photo to tell the tale of a work day. 
My husband has recently taken the leap and left his desk job of 25 years to start his own business. 
His new line of work is home preservation. 


It seems crazy....why would someone leave a cushy desk job for a job that requires 
physical labor. 
Risk security, relationships, and criticism?
If you remember my previous story about my husband's need for speed...
how he loves fast motorcycles, 
this new work opportunity is a reflection 
of who God has made him to be......
truth be told he will never be a 4 door sedan.
He is dependable, he is a person of integrity, his relationship with the Lord is secure which makes me feel secure. 
Yet when he began this new venture out in the "field" on his own, hard physical labor sometimes 10 -12 hour days he was coming alive in a way that made my heart happy.

He now secures and 
cleans up properties for banks. 

The day that he needed my help he had to trim all of the landscaping at a house as well as build a covering to secure the
 in ground pool in the back yard. He called me around 3:00pm to ask if I could go help him. So I put on the work boots and rain gear and raked leaves, tree branches, shrub trimmings hauling it all to the dump trailer. We worked way past dark in the rain....he was so grateful, as he expressed his gratitude for my help his words filled my heart with joy.....
This is the stuff of a long lasting marriage.....
understanding each other.....
supporting each other......
allowing each other to chase dreams......

"Where you go I will go, 
and where you stay I will stay."
