I'm tired this morning, but it is a good tired. Yesterday was a good and encouraging day thanks to my many friends.
I had the great HONOR of going out with some of my favorite people in the world. Crumpy, Beck, and Tim (all looking strikingly handsome I might add) picked Allison, Kate and I up for dinner in OKC. We got poems, flowers, and for mucho romantical points, the car seats and floors were covered with rose-pedals! Nice details boys! We went to eat at Zio's and walked around Bricktown afterwards taking pictures and laughing A LOT. It was a wonderful night!
I would give you some of the quotes from the night that we collected for my quote book, but looking at them this morning I decided not to. I think it would give the wrong impression of our night. Ask me about them and I will give you some--all out of context of course. Guys, we felt VERY honored and appreciated, so thank you so much!
I also got the greatest gift from Debby Jean Adams. She made a "Boyfriend in a Box" for me. The boyfriend was Jesus! It came complete with a "profile" of my man, wallet-sized photos, post-it messages that He's left me, five love letters, and a framed picture of me and Jesus. (Yes, there is an actual picture of me with "Jesus." It is stinkin' awesome) It made my day when I opened it. Not only was it super fun it was pure, Biblical encouragement!
I want to share some of my favorite parts: These are from Jesus' profile sheet: "Interests: The souls of men, Holly Kimbrough, teaching, praying, the world. Hobbies: Fishing for men, hangin' with the disciples, healing, walking on water, miracles, raising the dead."
I also received five love letters. As I read them this morning, I was reminded of how new and fresh the Bible is each time I look at it. Each letter contained verses, but as they were written to me, they truly seemed like love letters. How cool it is for me to hear these word in that context. I talked a lot the last couple of blogs about men and women and such. One of the letters I read summed up what I was saying. Jesus truly is the greatest lover and supporter. Here is one of the "love letters" I received:
My dear love, Holly, I will not in any way fail you nor give up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake not let you down or relax My hold on you! Assuredly not! So take comfort and be encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm. I will not fear or dread or be terrified. What can man do to me? Love, The Lover of Your Soul (Hebrews 13:5-6)
That is the perfect love letter. My tanks are full. Thanks Debby, Kevi, Tim, and Beck.
