Friday Talk: True Love

*written on Monday:

I am not sure that this post will be written as well as I want it to be or even as I experienced it.  I don't want this post to be too sappy (because I have a hard time with anything too sappy), but I knew that if I didn't write about it, it would slip through my fingers and I would soon forget.

Yesterday was a great Sabbath day.  I started a bit frustrated with the kids, was refreshed after Sacrament meeting and then in Relief Society.   After church we ate our traditional Chicken Salad sandwiches and then I went to lay down in the sun. 

You see, our front window is amazing.  We have a HUGE window that lets the sun filter in..we love to lay down and get a good dose of Vitamin D.  Yesterday was brilliant.  It was actually sunny.  And to be in Cleveland, with the sun, is nothing short of a miracle.

After a few moments my hubby came over and snuggled in next to me.  Do you know how glorious it is to see the love of your life in the sunlight?  I mean, I literally couldn't believe how amazing his eyes looked.  (And I often think how good looking he is.  He was blessed with GREAT genetics :)

BUT, to have him in the sunlight and sitting next to me, was a different story.  At times he looked ethreal, as in heavenly.  I may have caught a glimpse of how Bella felt when she saw Edward glitter in the sun.

Like I said, I don't want to be too sappy, but to honestly just sit there (and ignore the kids) and just gaze into each other's eyes?  It gave me an even greater sense of what our Heavenly Father sees in us. 

Have you heard the song, "What Heaven Sees in You"?   I know it is geared toward girls, but the chorus is perfect for how I felt:

And the Father looked down
And the angels surrounded that place
They knew the truth, all that you could do
And you will, too, if you have eyes to see
What heaven sees in you..

I love this man to eternity and back.
