Changing Man

As the day settles down and the children are in bed, I am sitting across my husband while he does his homework. I know I say this a lot, but the amount of pride I have in this man is extreme. I am so proud of the man he is and the man he is turning into. I feel blessed that God gave me such a wonderful gift.

He has always been an great person and husband, but I am now seeing a new person emerge in him since he has become a man of God. A man who not only takes care of us like he feels is his role, but a man who feels that he should be a role model of Gods love for himself and his family.

I had a particularly tough time last weekend with several different issues and I came back from those situations feeling like no matter what I did, I was never good enough. I simply felt defeated and crawled in my bed and cried. Then, I feel these arms wrap around me and say, "it doesn't matter if everyone else thinks your good enough, the only one that truly counts is God." I was stunned. This man, who until January believed in God but really kind of had a indifference attitude about it, just spoke the most amazing words I could have heard in that moment. I love this man that God is turning him into. A great man without God, an amazing one with. An amazing transformation is occurring and I get to watch it first hand.

I truly thank God for my husband and though we may struggle from time to time in our life and marriage, I never forget how truly lucky I am to have him. He is a hardworking, loving father and husband, what more could a girl ask for?!

Happy Fathers Day to my Sir Worksalot! We love you so much!
