For my husband...

I commented on something I blogged the other day and my husband said he had read it. I was a little surprised in that I didn't know he ever read what I wrote. He admitted to getting on every once in a while to "check up" on what I tell the world about our little family. Then he said in his teasing way that it really didn't matter, since i never wrote about HIM!

I don't think that is totally true. Honestly, maybe I haven't written a WHOLE blog about him, and most of the time I'm telling a story about my kids or what I'm doing, but he is there...

Anyway, I decided to dedicate a WHOLE post to him. I'm going to call it "TEN THINGS I LOVE ABOUT MY HUSBAND." Of course this probably wont make him happy either, for he will just say I wrote it because of what he said, but I'm going to write it anyway! So here it goes...

Ten Things I Love About My Husband!

1. His Heart. It is big. It is full of compassion and a love for people.

2. His hugs. He is my KevyBear. He gives the best hugs in the world!

3. His love for his children. He is a proud daddy that enjoys spending time with his kids.

4. His goofiness. He has his crazy moments when he just wants to laugh.

5. His ability to laugh at himself. That is something I do not have, I worry too much about what others think, while he has the ability to take an embarrassing situation and turn it around.

6. His love for his family. He has such a respect and honor for his parents. He is a great example for our kids.

7. He cries... He is able to show his emotions in public. He wears his heart on this sleeve.

8. His voice. A precious, beautiful gift from God. I love to hear him sing!

9. His love for Christ. He teaches it. He shares it. He lives it.

10. He loves me. He loves me "through the good and the bad, in sickness and in health..."

I'm a lucky girl. Nineteen years ago, I met a ministry student at college. We became good friends. He would change my life. You see, I didn't want to marry someone in the ministry. I was tired of the "fishbowl" life I had grown up with. However, God had other plans for me. He sent cupid and his arrow my way and the rest is history! :) I'm not your typical minister's wife by traditional standards, yet I'm thankful to be where I am today. I have a loving husband, who is a great father and a man who has devoted his life to serving Christ. He has been blessed with some pretty special gifts and a very fruitful ministry... I'm glad I've been along for the ride.

So, Kev, if you read this, " I love ya!" Thank you for all you do for us. I know there is an extra big jewel in your crown for putting up with me ( and my indecisive family) all these years!

Ya know what? You BOTH are have one another! You go together like, like...uh...mac & cheese or peanut butter and jelly? Well, you know what I mean. You fit, you compliment each other and are each other's best friend and that's the way it ought to be. I know Kevin's question. But, you are special, too, and so is Kayla and Jordan. You are one amazing family, and I love you all.
