Everyday Is Special Because of Him (My Husband)!

Today is my sweetheart’s 38th birthday.  He still looks 18!  No kidding.  He is amazing in so manyyyyyyy ways (not just the incredibly young & handsome look). He doesn’t make a big deal about his birthday or any holidays for that matter.  It’s another day that the Lord has made (Psalm 118:24).  He makes everyday special for all of us just by being himself.  I even said to him once today that it’s his birthday but somehow I felt like it’s my birthday, too.  He always puts God first and family second.  He is truly "a man after God’s own heart." 

My husband is my hero of faith and integrity!  He may not be famous and he has not changed the world (yet), but he is a real hero in our eyes.  His love for God is real.  His desire to please and honor God is real.  His passion to reach the lost for God’s kingdom is real.  His personal relationship with Jesus is real.  His reverence for our Holy God is real.  His obedience to God is real.  His pursuit of memorizing, studying, and understanding God’s Word is real.   His zeal for Godliness is real.  His compassion for others is real.  He breathes and lives what he preaches (he’s not a preacher by profession, but he loves to talk about God and the Bible).  "But as for me, it is good to be near God.  I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all Your deeds." Psalm 73:28–That’s my hubby.  He is also the most giving/generous man I’ve ever known.  His thought is this, "Whom have I in heaven but You?  And earth has nothing I desire besides You." (Psalm 73:25)  Today the sermon at church was about us (Christians) being salt and light in the world (Matthew 5:13-16).  Well, I think my husband is very salty and very bright, indeed :) .

When I read the following Bible verses, I think of my hero hubby.
"The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks what is just.  The law of his God is in his heart; his feet do not slip." Psalm 37:30-31  My husband is a wise, just, and righteous man.

"The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him." Proverbs 20:7  Our children are especially blessed!  And I am a very blessed wife!
 
In addition, my husband is a prayer warrior, a cheerful giver, a humble servant of Christ, a loving & faithful husband, a superb daddy, a Godly leader, a hard-working provider, a strong & capable protector, a talented piano player and composer, a judicious civil engineer, a kind & trustworthy gentleman, an excellent sportsman (basketball, baseball, ping-pong, golfing, soccer, etc.), a hard-to-beat chess player, an intelligent debater, a witty & funny entertainer, a natural linguist, an extremely honest man, a terrific tea & coffee maker, a daring juggler (juggling mangoes, eggs, and such) and lots…lots more.  Did I mention that he’s amazing?  He’s by no means "perfect."  He’s just our real, amazing hero!
