Without who this day signifies, my life as I know it would not exist in the same way. I wouldn't be the wife I am or the momma I am, but even more than that, I wouldn't be the person that I am today. But because of April 10, 1978, I would become exactly who God intended me to be at this stage in my life.
Have you figured it out yet? Yes, today is DH's birthday!!
I obviously didn't know him as this amazingly adorable little boy
but there's certainly still a hint of that hero-loving boy left in my handsome man I have the privilege to call husband.
And I'm always telling him it was a good thing that I DIDN'T meet him when he was a high schooler or early in his college days, because I would have fallen hopelessly head over heels for him, and he would have found me an incredibly annoying little girl!
(Truth be known, I think he may have had those thoughts anyway when we did meet one another on a fall September day in 2000, but thankfully he got over it eventually;-)
I have gotten to celebrate fourteen of this amazing man's birthdays with him, and since this year's happens to fall on "throwback thursday," I thought I would post 14 various pictures of this handsome hubby of mine from "back in the day":)
We've experienced so many joys and sorrows together, and through it all, God has reminded us of His faithfulness. On days when I was about the lose my grip on Hope, DH has been there to remind me Who to look to and grab a hold of...and when I didn't have the strength to grab a hold of Him myself, he was right there beside me helping me to do so.
I love this man with all of my heart, not just because of the incredible love he shows to me, but because of the incredible love He shows to others, and even more, the ultimate love that He's committed his life to sharing with others--Jesus.
Any day now, we will be celebrating the arrival of our newest blessing, but for today, DH, we celebrate YOU! And we thank our Heavenly Father for you.
Happy Birthday, DH! You are LOVED!
