The other day my husband decided to make me smile again (actually it was more like a big fat cheesy grin). He's been doing that a lot lately. Making me smile! Everybody say Awwwww. Anyway, we were looking at kids tablets to help my son with his learning and somehow found ourselves looking at Samsung Tablets (for adults). You know, the kind you drool over but you know deep down your totally dreaming so the drool goes unchecked. Yes I know I sound like a full on nerd at the moment but I've always had a little thing for technology so just bear with me.
So we rock up to JB HiFive and start looking at these bad boys and I strategically mention that there is only one left in stock and *sigh* aren't the gold cases so pretty (and they match my phone - oooh bonus!). I casually ask the salesperson to let me see the goods and my hubby just casually allows me to indulge in the dreamy possibilities. We slowly wander around the store and make our way to the counter and all the while I'm thinking...is this for real?! Am I dreaming? Seriously. Did I just pull off the biggest wife-heist ever?? All the while my annoying budget alarm is going off and getting louder and louder…(You know you can’t afford this stuff on one income Rebecca - be sensible!)
Out comes the wallet and my face starts twitching...that grin just wants to break free but I still can't quite believe it. We walk out of the shop and I'm still high on confusion. I look at my hubby sideways and he's got a grin on his face that would rival anything I've got waiting in the wings. And you know what he says to me?
"Sometimes God just wants to bless us - just because".
No agendas. Not because we earnt it. Not because we deserve it. Not because it's practical or because we need it. (Trust me, I could have delivered a polished sales pitch for why I NEED this tablet).
There is nothing like being lavishly loved on, by Daddy God - oh yeah and by the man He set you up with.
Yeah...feeling the love. And spreading it to - because guess what I'm blogging on right now :)
