One Thousand Gifts (44-55)

I have been reading A Holy Experience (Ann Voskamp's blog) for a few months. Every Monday, Ann adds to her list of One Thousand Gifts and today I'm adding to my list too.


Since today is Valentine's Day, I've decided to focus my list this week on Wonderful Husband.

I'm thankful for Wonderful Husband and:

44. our love for each other through 28 years of marriage...and counting

45. his love for our children and always having the time and energy to share his wisdom with them

46. always working hard to support us financially

47. always encouraging me when I face a new situation by calming my jitters and telling me that I can do anything I set my mind to...and do it well

48. him being my biggest supporter and my being his biggest fan

49. giving him a buzz hair cut on Saturday...now only one of us has hair that sticks up (Hey! I do mine like that on purpose:)

50. him never complaining when I went to church or school meetings

51. his kindness and fairness toward everyone

52. his honesty in his life (personal and professional)

53. even though he knows me the best...he hasn't run away screaming (kind of a joke...kind of not!)

54. the visible example he is to our children on being a good husband and father

55. God blessing our marriage because we couldn't have survived, grown, and thrived this long without Him

Turn on your speakers. Read, enjoy, and thank God for His blessings.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. Three cheers for wonderful husbands!! :) I'm thankful to God for my husband, too - and for the way God has kept us together, even when neither of us deserved it. (Or, I suppose I should say, when things were bad, that was exactly what we deserved...and God delivered us anyway!)
