Mr. Amazing Saved the Day!

God gifts people in so many ways. I can write, strike up conversations with all sorts of folks, bake up a storm.... But Mr. Amazing is my hero. To the average eye, he's a quiet, mild-mannered mail carrier. To my eyes, he's so much more.

After working all day, he listened to how I described my car crisis yesterday, told me what he thought the problem was and went to work fixing it. Before bed last night he had replaced the starter and tested the engine. Yesterday afternoon my car wouldn't even start...today it purrs like a kitten.

I am blessed to spend my life with Mr. Amazing. I think Solomon wrote about him:
Go then, eat your bread in happiness and drink your wine with a cheerful heart; for God has already approved your works...
Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life which He has given you under the sun; for this is your reward in life and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might...
Ecclesiastes 9:7, 9, 10 (NASV)
True love doesn't have to prove itself with roses and chocolates. Those are just romantic bonuses. True love is proven in everyday faithfulness.

Love: All that I do and all that I say is for your highest good. ~Pastor Patrick Elliott

I love it when a wife brags on her man!

Amen, sister!

So how do you reward Mr. Amazing?

Mr. Amazing is really easy to please.

I will have a nice supper of leftover chili (flavor is always better the second day) and fresh whole grain corn muffins. Found a fabulous dessert recipe for Pumpkin Cobbler on Lori's blog: http://allyouhavetogive.blogspot.com/.

We'll eat in the sunroom on the good china (simple foods become gourmet fare on fine china) and listen to some Scottish & Irish instrumental music while we dine.

Maybe after supper, we'll sit in the swing with our coffee and look at stars.

But what will mean the most to him is being greeted at the door with a smile and a kiss and coming into a quiet, tidy house.

~~Because, at the end of a day of hero work, Mr. Amazing craves peace and gentleness most of all.~~

"Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave."
