I just knew-

A long time ago (ok so less than two years ago because that is how long I have known him) I was just starting to get to know Jason. "Oddly enough" he had started spending a lot more time with us at church and Bible studies and just hanging out (ok don't judge me I was still in denial lol).

At the time we went as a group to clean a friend of our families house. They were returning from a year in the mission field and the people that had been renting their house had just up and left leaving a wreck at their house (literally it smelled so bad we were gagging the first time we went in).

We got to work but there were two places people did not want to touch. That was the two bathrooms. We truly thought that we were going to have to replace to toilets they were so beyond disgusting.

We worked the first evening and then continued to come back and work on the house over the next few days. The toilets had stilled not been cleaned and no one out of the group was going near them with a 10 foot pole! Then-one night Jason did something that made such an impression on me and spoke volumes about his character.

I remember distinctly working in the living room and glancing up to see him quietly scrubbing away at the worst toilet out of the two. He didn't make a big deal about it. He didn't draw attention to it. He just did it. He took the least desirable job that no one wanted and did something about it. Humbly. Quietly. Without a word of complaint.

I remember just standing there amazed. Watching him and realizing that I had seen just another thing that proved that he was a man of depth and character.

He scrubbed that toilet for a long LONG time and by the time it was done it looked brand new. Once it was done he just moved on to the next thing that needed to be done  but that left such an impression.

Why do I bring this up again?

Well, last night I was laying in bed absolutely exhausted and unable to move. When all the sudden I blearily opened my eyes and there my husband was-cleaning the toilets. His sister came today and he was doing his best to help clean.

Now, you have to understand, that the bathroom is a chore I really do not like at all and so just seeing him sacrificially just serving and trying to make things easier on his very swollen, exhausted pregnant wife just reminded me again what depth of character my husband has.

He is such a prince. Truly, he was so worth waiting for! To think that God blessed me with such a godly man truly humbles me. I am so thankful!

Besides Jesus-Jason is the best thing that has ever happened to me.


Who would have thought that scrubbing toilets would be a reminder of how blessed I truly am? God is so good!

What little reminders has God placed in your life lately? I would love to hear about it :)

  2. Awh, Katy, this almost made me cry. Thank you for sharing and for making me stop and remember the little blessings. I haven't been doing that lately.
    My brother made the comment the other day as we were admiring the sky (as storms were rolling in) that I notice and enjoy the small things. He's right and my God knows that. That was a blessing to me, that my brother noticed and reminded me (inadvertently) of God's love for me inside and out.

  4. As soon as I saw the toilet picture, I KNEW I had to read this one! LOL! My husband really reminds me every day of how much he loves me. Yesterday I was very tired as my children have been sick and up alot at night. I woke up at 7AM, and put my son in bed with me and dozed off again. The next thing I knew it was 10 o'clock and hubby was busy in the kitchen. When I went out, I found that he had fixed French Toast for breakfast and I was SO surprised!!! It was so sweet of him to keep the children quiet and fix breakfast so I could rest! What a great guy. :)
