It's hopeless.....I am stuck like super glue to this man...or maybe gorilla glue!
This man...I sure do love him. Here I am hanging on to him. He is everything to me.
When I am weak, he is strong.
When he looks back over his days, and sees the treasures hanging on his tree of life ...I want to be his most treasured ornament...I want him to feel that I was of a great value to him in his personal journey. Even "far above rubies" or any other riches he might have hung on his tree had he gone a different direction. I want to be worthy of that cherished position.
The older I get and the more I reflect on our walk together, the more I know how much he has loved me. He has stuck with me through thick and thin (literally) and in between! :-)
He has put up with me and my hobbies and numerous requests...building me chicken coops, tracking down 100 pound bags of wood shavings for the pens, installing fencing around the yard for my doggies, putting up with rescued foster dogs coming in and out on their way to a new forever home, having kitties rubbing all over his legs,building furniture... building garden boxes, and arbors and welding shepherds hooks and obelisks, hauling in mulch, and gravel for paths, and big rocks for landscaping, building a treehouse for the kids, installing an irrigation sprinkling system and hooking it up to an old well on our back property installing the pump himself... adding on a 3rd bath so that our daughter could have her own private bath away from her 3 bros...Installing wood floors in our house, wiring new outlets and fixtures... and so much more.
And these days he keeps track of Justin and the Marine Corp news for me.
And then there is just putting up with... and trying for years to figure out....ME! Kurt is SUCH a good listener.
I think men just want to understand us...the complicated, mysterious, pink-thinking, emotional, ever-changing our minds talk,talk,talk creatures that we are. They really want to make us happy, they just never can quite figure out the one formula that works every time in every situation so they can say they have conquered the challenge we are...and oh how mind boggling we must be to them.
And so...today, I am testifying that I love this man. He is my #1 treasure. He completes me. We fill each others gaps. I thank God for him.
I close with the quote over on my sidebar.
"She does him good and not evil all the days of her life" Prov. 31:12
The greatest gift you can give your husband is the gift of lifting his name and his needs before the throne of God. Prayer for your husband releases the energies of God, for prayer is asking God to do what you cannot do." Elizabeth George
HON...you da man. Love you F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
