The Stable One

That moment… you are on the phone… with an important dear friend… and they say it…

“Thank you for always being the stable one…. (blah blah blah)”

The conversation comes to an end… and as you hang up the phone your head falls flat on the table….

Your husband is now, coffee cup in hand, starring at you.

“You ok?” He asks.  He did just hear my side of the conversation.

My head still on the table… now shaking in the back and forth motion….

Husband still starring at me.  I can feel it.

So I speak… “Like when did I become the stable one?”

“What?”  He appears to be just as shocked as I am.  “who would say that about you?”

“I know right?”  I gasp.  “Me?  Stable? Like Literally!!!!???”  I continue with full on dramatics.  “She just called ME the STABLE ONE!!!!!”  Lifting my head up… staring this man I adore in the face and seeing the bewildered expression on his face, “Since when did I become the stable one????  If I am considered Stable then this world is literally whacked out!”

All he could say was “Wow…”  with the most bewildered puzzled look on his face.

Then we just burst into laughter…. Because we know the truth.  We live the truth.. and it really does change everything… In a world that denies the truth!


This photo in this post was taken last week on my way to pick up milk…. It was the most beautiful sunrise over the mountain cascading down onto the farm next to the road.  Totally a delight that God sent me out for milk at the most amazing time for these pretty peaceful photo op.
