How My Husbands Serves....

Where do I begin? How does my husband NOT serve me, our children, or our home? I know I am not supposed to boast in anything but Christ, but as I post this, I cannot contain myself from speaking kindly about my husband. Darren, I told you yesterday, everyday I feel like I am living a fairytale by being married to you. You are a man filled with the joy that only Christ can bring. You are a man that pulls your weight around our home even though you work hard outside of the home too. You are a man that does not think anything is beneath you. Humility, acts of kindness, and dedication are some of your best qualities. You are considerate and tender to my desires. You don't just tell me you love me. You show me you love me in your actions. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for being a man, who is dedicated to the Lord and to his family, for being my team player, for being the father I think every child deserves, and for providing for my EVERY need.

This past weekend, I was LAID OUT COLD for two straight days. Darren cleaned the house from top to bottom. I was able to sneak behind him and snap a photo of him cleaning the hardwood floors.

I did have to capture one from the front too though to show that he wastes NO time. While cleaning the hardwoods, he was listening to Sunday's sermon. Can you spot his headphone wires? We missed Church due to illness in our home. What a great example he is to myself as well as our children.

Ephesians 5:25 "Husbands, love your wife, the way Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her."

1 Peter 3:7 "Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered."

Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you."

1 Timothy 5:8 "But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

1 Timothy 3:4-5 "He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?"
