I love my hubby

The guidelines:
Grab the graphic and insert with these rules, in your post.
Give at least 5 reasons why you love your hubby.
List more if you want.
Tag 5 people (or more) to play along and link to their blogs in your post.
Then visit those women’s blogs and leave them a comment on any of their posts.


Both Edge Of Design and D have done this so I thought I would give it a try. It is always good for us to remind ourselves why we love our men-because our enemy is sure to remind us why we don't or shouldn't love our men.


1. I think the first thing that drew me to Keith was the fact that he was a people person. The first time I saw him at our singles Bible study he came in late from work and the whole room seemed to stop to greet him. That late thing should have sent off warning bells. ;) Since then it seems he has never meet a stranger. He is right at home where ever his feet lead him. That is very attractive to me since I tend to be much more reserved with new people.
I love this in him and I think it makes people feel comfortable around him.

2. Keith has a huge giving heart. He would do anything for you and give you whatever was in his wallet. This can of course be good and bad.....but God is teaching us...and that is a good thing. He has worn off on me in a big way over the years in this area. As long as God leads us to give we will give.....it is really a fun thing to do.

3. Keith has a very tender heart. He can be watching a movie and I know without even looking over that he has tears in his eyes. Sometimes this does not show up so fast in the everyday with us....but I know that he loves deeply. And that makes me feel secure. We both have tender hearts so that makes us a good match. Mine may not be so obvious at first on the surface...but once you touch it-its yours. Keith is the same way.....he doesn't not give up on people easily...and I love that.

4. I have known since we got married that Keith loves God. But over the years I have seen that grow in a huge way. Not that he has grown in knowledge only but also in depth. He has the type of child like faith that I wish I had. It is harder for me to get beyond the natural. He has an incredible faith in the God he serves.

5. I love the fact that Keith is very laid back. It takes a lot to get him stirred. He maintains for a lot longer than I do. Along with this laid back spirit comes the freedom of one who is not a people pleaser. He really does not care about what people think of him......this does drive me crazy sometimes. But I think people like this about him because he is real. He does not hold his tongue so you always know where you stand with him.

We have both learned a lot in our years of marriage. Walking with our God and learning to love Him has made a huge difference in both of us. We have found that as we become more like Him- we grow closer together. The good things in each other rub off on the other. And just the same when we are not walking close to our Lord- we are walking away from each other. We spent way to many years that way.
Keith has taught me to be more comfortable around people..although I will always be one of those who thinks and observes before saying what they think. That is my Mom in me. :)

I guess that is enough for now. Ya'll know I don't tag....but if you do this let me know and I would love to come and read.

Such a beautiful tribute to Keith.

I don't know about you but sometimes I wonder what God was thinking when He put my husband and I together and then I think Wow! What was God thinking? Pretty awesome after all. Our human and frail minds a times. Always looking at the circumstances and never looking for the heart of God. We'll get it yet, I hope?! Your post got me to thinking too. I wonder what they would write about us and what they have had to put up with too. YIKES! Maybe I don't want to know. LOL!

Are all men laid back? LOL! I am doing a post of my own this week about hubby...and on my list is how he is an easy going guy. Yours sounds like a perfect match for you! What a blessing our husbands(our coverings) are to us!

ThreeGirlyGirls said...

Sounds like a great guy.

Sharon,

It sounds like your hubby is a wonderful guy. God puts us together with our spouses for a reason. Hubby keeps me grounded and I try to do the same for him. We are an odd couple, I would say, as we were raised so differently. After 20 years we have come to accept these things for what they are. Opposites do indeed attract, but sometimes we are like fire and water. LOL

Blessings,
Mary

You and I were blessed with great guys. Wonderful post and tribute to your mate. One regret I have is not leaning on my hubby more in our early years of marriage. The older we get and after 34 years of marriage, we are best friends again and have such a different way of connecting. We really do lean on one another more and really do appreciate each other. When he climbs a ladder, I want to be there to hold it for him. God has really given me a fresh new love for my guy.

You put the Bible down as one of your favourite books... Have you actually read it... all the way... front to back.

It's really terrible you know. Very anti-woman!

What a wonderful tribute to your beloved. I think it is so cool that you both met at a Bible study :)

Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Blessings to you and yours...

I wanted to amen everything you said about your hubby and apply it to mine. I did the mem, but you said it so much better! :)
