A Loving Spouse

As we begin to make preparations for our evening out... I'm reminded of my wonderful spouse!!! We met while attending seminary and almost immediately started to spend time together. While I had NO idea he was making long-term plans for us, I did have a deep feeling that Brian would be apart of my life for a long time... ha hahaa

The value of a like-minded, loving and devoted spouse is HUGE!!

I am soo thankful that my husband shares the same desires to grow in his faith and that we share the same faith. While I think some couple manage fine, I am soo grateful that we have our faith in common and that my husband loves learning more about his faith and is willing to share with me:)And that we worship together and our faith unites us in life and parenting:)

I'm thankful that my husband loves me! He frequently looks out for my best interests as well as our family's! He encourages my hobbies and pushes me to better use my abilities. And he shows appreciatation for the special things I attempt to pull-off for him and the kids(new meals, organizing and activities with the kids) and in serving the church!!

Maybe I'm sensitive about my husband's relationship with our kids because of my relationship with my biological dad. But it makes my heart warm and my love stronger when I see my husband playing and loving on our kids!! I love it when he comes home from the offfice and the little terrorists become sweet angels running into their Daddy's arms:) I love that their love for him is reciprocated by him!!

Lord God, Thank you for giving me Brian. Thank you for our relationship! While not perfect, thank you for allowing our faithfulness, friendship and love for one another to grow stronger!

I still remember the day Brian stole my "seat" next to you at the kick-off campus-wide picnic shortly after we all met. It was then I knew he was after you! :) What a joy to have seen you guys together from the start.

I answer Rachel... I think everyone knew Brian was "after me", except me. I thought for sure he enjoyed playing tennis with me but I thought he and my roommate had a lot more incommon:) I guess Not:)
