Reminiscing


Today, my husband and I have been married 13 years. I really can't believe that it has been so many years. Now, I realize some of you may be thinking that we are just "babies", but think back to when you first got married. Does it really seem like all that long ago? Time has flown by faster than I imagined and it seems to only be getting faster!




In honor of this special day, I'd like to share some special things about my husband that I've learned over the last few years...






  1. He desires the Lord's will in His life.


  2. He is not lazy and provides for his family well.


  3. He enjoys his children and wants the best for them.


  4. He does not settle for the world's view of life or religion, but desires to take that narrow path described in Scripture.


  5. He loves me by showing me his love through special acts (i.e washing dishes, doing laundry, checking on the children at bedtime even when he is sooo tired, allowing us to have a dog! and so much more)


  6. He is bold for Christ.


  7. He is thrifty and finds special and different ways to pay for the "fun" things in life.


  8. He desires to learn and grow, not just settle for ho-hum.


I can continue, but you get the picture. I am so thankful God brought him into my life. Even though we do not always agree, and I must admit, life has not always been enjoyable, my husband has taught me more about Christ, more about myself and more about what true love is. If asked again, I would still say "I do".

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
