I remember praying as a young girl - when I felt ugly and unpopular, a misfit - that God would send me someone special.
And He did!
Over 21 years ago, I began dating a brilliant man that would honor my purity,
who would love me through good and bad,
who would cherish me as a tender henna blossom (see Song of Solomon - it's an amazing book!),
who would be the most wonderful daddy to our children,
who would make me laugh,
who would help wipe my tears when pain came our way,
who would help provide financial security for our family,
who would work unbelievably hard every day,
who would cook and clean when needed,
who would read God's word to our children EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT.
And, have I mentioned that he is the sexiest man alive??
He's certainly not perfect (who is?), but I think he's pretty dog-gone close! :)
I made the comment at lunch, this past Sunday, that I am "one of the most blessed women in the world to have a husband like him." My 13 year old son, Caleb, corrected me and said, "You are THE most blessed woman right now...When I get married, you will be ONE of the most blessed women!" LOL! I bet he's right, b/c his Lord and his Daddy are helping train him well. :)
I am one very spoiled woman!
May I never take for granted the precious gift God gave me when He gave me my husband.
