I’m writing today’s blog in honor of
my super awesome amazing husband.Today
he turns the big 4-0!
I met Dan through a very divinely ordered dramatic
turn of events.I don’t think I need to
rehash all the details…however it was akin to something out of an episode of
Seinfeld or some romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler.Perhaps it’s a screenplay I’ll write one day;
let’s just say God has a hilarious since of humor.
I remember when I was young and my
dad turned 40.I remember thinking it
was so old.It’s funny how age just
becomes relative the older you get.
This last season of time has not
been easy on either of us, but my husband is such a trooper.He is one of the most talented artistic minds
I’ve ever had the privilege of being around and even though he could have done
many things with the last few years of his life, he’s chosen to stay the course
and allow God to mold him and mature him for His glory. He’s become so business
and entrepreneur minded that often times he reminds me to think outside of the
box. HE continues to say focused on what He knows is his God given destiny.
When most people publicaly see the two of us they
are probably used to seeing me.I’m loud
and outspoken.But my husband is really
the stable one in the family.He tends to
be my anchor, when my seasons-of-dramatic-whims come along; He holds me down
and brings me a stable calm that matures me to being the woman I need to be on
physically as aged rather gracefully, He still looks like he did when we met over
14 years ago minus the silver hoop earring.While he may look in the mirror and complain about a slightly thinning
head of hair or the casual grey hair, truthfully I remind him of Proverbs 16:31 (ESV) “Gray
hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.”
He’s a good father, who has a knack of explaining
things to our children at their level, where I just confuse them with five
syllable vocabulary words.
Though being raised by one of the best undiscovered
Italian chef’s on the planet, he has graciously eaten my cooking over the last
13 years, even when I label it as “edible”.
I want to publically say that he is one of my hero’s
on the earth, and I thank God every day for him.There is no one else on the planet I’d rather
be sharing my life.It hasn’t always
been easy for us, but we’ve stuck it out.I want to wish a very Happy 40th Birthday to one of the best
guys on the planet.
Remember God has awesome plans for your life.Get excited.
