Thursday Thirteen #13

Thirteen Things about my husband...
In honor of his birthday this weekend!
  1. He is SMART! He graduated from Georgia Tech in Engineering and also from seminary with a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages. I predict he will get his Ph.D years from now. Uh, that means the wedding invitations for all our kids will be Dr. and Mrs. hee hee
  2. He is a man who serves the Lord. I am grateful for that and feel the Lord blessed me beyond measure regarding that part.
  3. He challenges me! He pushes my buttons sometimes, but it's only because he loves me. (I tend to forget the love part sometimes when he is pushing and challenging me, but the Lord always reminds me.)
  4. He loves baseball. That was like a requirement to date me...you have to love the game!!
  5. He loves our boo bear...now, how could anyone not love the boo?? Seriously, Jeremy loves having that boy and his life was rocked when boo entered our lives. It was incredible watching him take care of him and even more incredible watching him now help him grow into a godly man.
  6. He is a lover of books. I love books too, but he has at least twice as much as I do...so, together we have our own library. We have more boxes of books than we do for the rest of the whole house. I pray every day for a house with a den/library, with built in book cases.
  7. He is a cautious driver. Way more than me!! He drives in the right lane and only uses the left to pass...I am serious...he is a great driver. :)
  8. He is good at the details. He keeps good logs and memories and is very good at the details for his job. In the ministry, the details are important.
  9. He dresses well. He is a clean dresser. Always smells good. Always has his shirt tucked in...although he has been known to wear it un-tucked, which by the way, I find cute.
  10. Jeans! He has only 1 pair of jeans, and I must say...HE LOOKS HOT in them. Oh, his dad would cringe that I just said that. :)
  11. He does the dishes!!! Again, very grateful for that. I normally do the cooking and he always does the cleaning. I love that about him.
  12. He has an opinion. I don't mean that sarcastically, but seriously. He did care what china we had and what glasses and silverware we chose. I like that about him...because honestly, I wasn't all that decisive on things. When he did engineering work, one of his clients was Wedgewood China. So, he knew his stuff.
  13. He is my husband. The Lord gave him to me and for that, I am forever grateful. I was changed by the Lord's love, but the love Jeremy shows me through Christ, in our marriage, will touch my life deeply. I wouldn't walk this road with anyone else.

Great 13 but even better, a GREAT testimonial to those considering marriage and what they look for in a Husband. The foundation building blocks DO make a great difference. -M

Lisa said...

Wayne Dyer has said that our true soulmate is one that pushes our buttons so that we can learn and grow through that experience.

Lucky you to have a husband that does that AND gives you all the good stuff too! He sounds like a wonderful man and I suspect he'd gush just as much about you on your birthday!

Thanks for stopping by Snarkypants! have a good day.
