Anne of Green Gables

Today was an absolutely beautiful day on Prince Edward Island. It’s been a long winter and the sun felt so good on my skin. Tom (my wonderful, spontaneous, handsome hubby) suggested we go explore the island. Laundry – tour the island – laundry? You don’t have to ask me twice. The island won. We ended up at the home of Anne of Green Gables. It wasn’t opened but that didn’t stop us. We got to walk around and take pictures. It was so much fun.

Then if I wasn’t in love with Tom enough, we stopped by Frosty Treat and ate some fried clams. Yummy. It was such a glorious day because I got to enjoy this beautiful place we live in and spend time alone with my honey. We talked and held hands. It was so much fun. 

I wondered what made this day so special? I started laundry and there were things I needed to get done today, but the idea of an afternoon with Tom won out. I loved the fact that it was a spur of the moment idea. Tom thought of me and wanted to spend time with me.

Then I had this thought . . . what if God felt like that about me? I sometimes think, I have a busy day today and I don’t have time to fit Him in. I think He likes it too if I’m spontaneous with Him. So the next time I feel His tug, I will just go with it and put the laundry aside until later.

Good response to your sweetheart's invitation. Makes sense about God calling too.
