I don’t do many blogposts anymore for birthdays. There are so many of them and I always wonder if people are tired of seeing our celebrations.
However, it’s that hubby of mine’s birthday and I want to honor him because, frankly, life is short and sometimes there just needs to be a honorary post for one amazing man!
After all, there’s not many guys out there who would be willing to do what he does. Currently he’s working four (yes you read that right) jobs to meet the needs of our family. He doesn’t complain. He just works hard and to think – we live very simply.
One of the jobs he works tirelessly on behalf of the orphan and the 16,000 orphans and vulnerable treasures our ministry feeds each month. I’m not counting this as a different job, but he also spends several times a year either leading mission teams or going to the land we love.
He loves his kids and invests in them. He talks to those living far and spends time hanging out with the married one close by to where we live.
When he was 60 years old he enthusiastically said “yes” to number 13 and 14 while knowing that same 14th (who was a three-year-old “lifer”).
He chases our little ones (and our little grands too!) and when he catches them there are always uproarious giggles. He wrestles with his sons and snuggles with his daughters.
He’s kind, compassionate and grace-filled. He tells everyone he meets about Jesus and loves leading people to Christ. He loves training younger men to walk with the Lord and really thrills at training pastors.
Personally speaking, after growing up with a skewed view of a father, my sweet hubby has tenderly modeled what it is to be a loving, gentle and caring daddy.
He’ll do almost anything for and with his kids! Trust me, I have other
even more embarrassing pictures – because he’s done some pretty hilarious things! But you know the rule, “What happens at our home stays at our home!”
Not many men would enthusiastically, instantly and joyfully say “YES!” to the next adventure the Lord is leading us on. Only him. Only him. I’m so thankful that I married this man o’ mine. He’s my best friend and I just couldn’t even begin to imagine my life without him,
I’m so thankful he’s mine.
Dw’s a total people person and I know he’d get a great big ol’ kick out of some birthday wishes for you sweet bloggy friends! So if you are able, give him something to read tonight (cause I’m in Uganda and he’s home)!
Happy Birthday honey! You’re the dang best ever and I love you most!! Thank you for letting me come to Uganda. We’ll celebrate when I get home. Promise. 😉
