Bountiful Blessings Day 4

"Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies.  He who loves his wife loves himself.  After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of His body."

Day 4 of Bountiful Blessings...

I am indescribably grateful for my husband, Justin.  Grateful that God set him out for me before I was ever even conceived.  He saw my future and he was me building a life with this man.  He is a man who loves to hunt and to fish and to mudbog, but rarely gets time to because he's busy being a Dad.  He is a man who put himself on a ridiculous night shift and works so very hard to better provide for his family.  He is a man who wakes up most weekday afternoons exhausted from that night shift to care for his boys so that I can work.  He is a man who has put up with his difficult wife much more than he should have to.  He is man who gives and gives to his friends, whether or not those friends only call him when they need something.  Above all, he is a Godly man and I can think of no one better to head our household and partner with me in raising our children.

  1. Being a momma is a blessing but being a momma with a great Daddy to help you is even more wonderful! :) Love the picture of him and Harrison fishing. That needs to be printed big and framed for Harrison's room or either their bathroom, just saying! :)
