Love in Everyday Life

I am so glad I have found him whom my soul loves!

I Love Him and I Appreciate Him

I get discouraged when I hear women talking bad about their husbands. I don't like being around these conversations because they so easily influence my attitude toward the man I love so much. I have been intentional about filling my heart with the words from Philippians 4:8.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

While meditating on the words above, I started a list of things that my husband does that I appreciate...and it didn't take long for me to realize this list could just keep going on and on and on.
  • He makes sure we are good stewards of what God has given us
  • He fixes the clogged sink when I forget that our sink disposal can't handle sweet potato skins
  • He carries Sariah and a backpack with stuff when we go hiking so I don't have to carry anything
  • He runs all the updates and maintains my photography website and backups
  • He gives me rubs frequently and I love his hands so very much 
  • He eats everything I cook and is always grateful
  • He makes sure Sariah says 'thank you' when I do things for her
  • He tells me I am beautiful all the time
  • He enjoys spontaneous dance parties with me 
  • He is supportive and encourages me to try new things when I am timid
I love John for so many reasons and I appreciate so many things about him! I feel so blessed to live this life as his wife and I hope to honor him as his friend and lover.
