"Thankful for..." The Love of My Life

I am so thankful for my husband, Lynn. He is better than a bra...hee hee! I had to add that. He will get a huge laugh out of it. OK, what I mean is, he is my greatest support, the love of my life, my best friend. He's my all. He's our family priest, protector and provider. If it was not for his words of encouragement, I could not be the wife, mom, friend or homeschool parent that I am today. I thank God for him everyday. No matter what he is going through at that time in his own life, he is always there to lend an ear, a shoulder or a word of advice. He is so patient with me. I know that he was made specifically by God for me. He
completes me. We are so the opposite, where I'm focused, serious, organized, scheduled, he is the footloose fancy free light hearted always laughing kind of guy. You never know if he is serious because he is always playing around and goofing off. He was recently in nursing school but because of a test grade that was less than 80, he was removed from the program. He still holds a 3.7 GPA and finished those 2 nursing classes with B's. I am so proud of him. They don't know what they are missing. He could not make me any happier. We are not making any decisions right now. We are just waiting on God. We both know that we have unfinished business to attend in God's kingdom. So, God has closed a door and we are waiting on him to open another one. It doesn't matter what Lynn does, where he goes, who he becomes, he is a child of God and belongs to Him. With that, I know that he will never be mislead, misguided or fall where Grace does not exist. It is most comforting to know that. No one would ever know that we went through a 9 mo. seperation and was almost divorced 4 1/2 years ago. God did a miracle in our marriage and healed us both. Our marriage has never been the same since, and frankly I don't want it to be. I would go through that hell again for what we have today. Now, don't get me wrong, we are not perfect in any stretch of the imagination. God is still working in us.

Since he has been out of school, he has been able to help me teach the kids in their school. Wow, what a great help he has been. It has been a blessing to see him interact with his kids once again. I know these are days that they will never forget. I have already began to see a greater bond and a different dynamic in our family since he is more involved and can be the priest and teacher God has called him to be. I love him more than words can say. I'm so glad that we have a chance of forever with each other. Please pray for us as God leads. We are so excited about what is about to happen in our lives. We don't know just yet. And that's exciting too.

"Our" song is Everyday by Rascal Flatts. Lynn plays the guitar and I the piano and we sat down one day and picked this out together. We love to play it. So as you read this blog, you will be enjoying "our" song as well.

Thank you babe for being my rock and standing by me no matter what. I love you more than chocolate, money or music.
This is a picture of us Tues. 11/04/08 at Sunset Rock on Lookout Mtn. We went on a family hike.

This is beautiful! What a gift God has given you! Definitely something to be thankful for!

Miranda said... I have to say something nice about him?

Just kidding...I am glad the two of you kissed and made up. I can't believe it has been 4 1/2 years though. Anyhoo, you are very blessed to have him and I love you both very much.

But please don't tell him I said I love him...I wouldn't want him to get the wrong idea and think I like him or something like that...LOL

OK,I won't tell him. I wouldn't want to ruin your reputation with him.

Very sweet! It seems that the marriages that have struggled have only gotten stronger when God pulled them through. We went through a very difficult time early in our marriage, too, (and have come close to divorce), but we just celebrated our 12th anniversary. Praise God! I enjoyed meeting you a couple months back at Joanna's.

Me and Rick went through a separation about 2 years ago. We had been separated physically due to the decision to join the military 4 years ago. After a few years it moved to being emotional to almost divorce. I had separtion papers then God started working on us at the same time. It was about him not us. We commmitted to him at that altar not only to each other. We decided through hell or high water, we were in it together. It has not been easy but I so love my husband. He is, next to my daddy in heaven, the love of my life. It was not easy going through the fire but God does bring about something beautiful. I am so glad that he has done the same in your lives. i love you both. May you continue to fall more in love with him and each other everyday.
