Sometimes I feel so humbled by the untainted love God has for me. Gosh, I mess up so often, and yet He loves me with a love that is so perfect and never ending. His love covers me like the morning dew, so soft, clean, pure and refreshing….
My husband is the biggest blessing God has blessed me with. Which in turn makes me fall in love with my Savior all that much more. When The Lord was creating Kent, He had me in mind.
“I am my lover’s and my lover is mine…” Song of Solomon 6:3 NIV
Things I Love about Kent:
1.) he loves The Lord
2.) his ability to tell me, “it’s ok” and I believe him
3.) he is the best daddy ever
4.) he has the ability to make me whisper, “I love you Kent” when he’s not even around.
5.) he loves my food (but he is getting a little too comfortable in his critiquing, he has picked that up from my father)
6.) he ignores my stress during stressful catering jobs and still helps me (BeckyF & Samantha, you both have witnessed this many times)
7.) his dry humor
Things I would like to change about Kent, but love him anyways are:
1.) he hates nuts (so annoying)
2.) he gives me a 5 minute delay before he does anything I ask
3.) he wrestles too hard until he makes someone cry. (Yes, even his own children)
4.) he NEVER puts the milk or orange juice away
5.) he don’t cook. ANYTHING EVER, he would rather starve. (I don’t get it either)
I figured I should stop there and make sure the “I love” column was longer! I will say, the latter column; I typed through it like lightning! 😉
Kent and I have been married for 10 years. Yes, as with all marriages there have been a lot of up’s and down’s, but keeping God in the center of our marriage and giving Him the broken pieces to mend and place back together, has only made our marriage stronger. We have been blessed, because of perseverance.
Hold steadfast in whatever difficult situation you might have, you will be blessed! My prayer is that Kent and I won’t have too many difficult situations, but that we will never grow numb to the importance of our marriage staying strong in the foundation of God always being 1st in everything.
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 NIV
Oh besides, Kent and I have said, “we will never get divorced because we are too cheap and it’s too much paper work!” 😉
Kent loves chocolate. I’m convinced he loves chocolate because I don’t make it that often. Find out why HERE.
2 cups whipping cream
6oz. dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 large egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
Position rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 325°F. Arrange six 3/4-cup ramekins in a roasting or 9×13-inch pan.
Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized bowl; set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat the cream over medium heat until it’s steaming; remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for a few minutes, then whisk until smooth.
Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla. When the chocolate mixture has cooled a bit, whisk in the egg yolk mixture. Divide the custard between the cups, and pour warm water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the cups.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the custards are set. Cool, then refrigerate until well chilled.
Garnish with berries and/or sweetened whipped cream. Enjoy!
