Let me just tell you a bit about him here.
As if one blog entry could really capture all that he is.
He cares about people. He really really does. He loves making people feel welcomed, loved, cared about, and befriended.
The minute a guest enters our home, he always beats me to the first line, "Can I get you something to drink?"
He can't wait to cut up watermelon for guests, make fresh ice tea, and serve dinner without even knowing people were coming over. He is the one who pushes me to have more friends over to our place. He's always thinking of someone we should get to know better and invite to come over. He can't wait to play a game afterwards, and share a laugh or two.
Just a few weeks ago he volunteered to fix our friend's computer... it was dropped and completely fried. He figured out a way to get all the pictures/music/videos off even though the computer was completely dead. He's a genius.
He fixed someone's car this week and is scheduled to head over to another friend's house tomorrow to fix their car as well.
He gets up with our daughter many mornings so I can get a few more moments of shut eye. He makes her forts with pillows and blankets, tickles her, reads her books, kisses her, tells her he loves her, offers to put her to bed, changes her diaper, feeds her, and everything else in between.
He cares about every single youth group student we teach. He thinks about them all throughout the week and wonders how we can encourage them even more. He's willing to talk about what you want to talk about just so that you feel special. He will ask you about your life, your work, your hobbies, what you did today, and what you will do tomorrow. And he honestly cares about your answers.
He surprises me while I'm cooking dinner just to wrap his arms around me, give a soft kiss, and whisper in my ear that he loves me.
He's willing to learn new things in the hopes that he can serve others better. And he doesn't want you to pay him for it. Unless you are ridiculously good at making baked goods...
He is always striving to know Father more deeply. He has a favorite speaker and watches his podcasts regularly, yearning to learn more. He reads the Word with me many nights, and oftentimes reminds me "it's not about us, its about Him" whenever I am a bit on the selfish side. His favorite quote is, "It's not about being comfortable. It's about serving Him."
He's willing to say he's sorry. He admits when he messes up. He wants to be a better man every day and doesn't think he's "arrived".
When I tell him I'm excited to get fit and work out, he comments that he thinks I've always looked beautiful.
Here's to our husbands who love us and serve with all their heart. Now it's your turn. Comment below all about your amazing hubby, and tell us what makes him so special :)
