More Reasons My Hubby Is Awesome {Why You Need To Make A List}}



Awhile back I wrote a post titled  The Top Ten Reasons Why My Husband Is Awesome.
You know, marriage is not easy. 
We all have our own little quirks and life can leave us a little nearsighted
 with regard to those who are closest to us. 
Specifically our husbands. 
But the beauty of our relationship with Christ is that we have the power, possibility,
and provision to have a marriage that glorifies Him, because 
He makes all things possible, for those who believe and are willing to 
lay down their own rights to themselves for something so much more divine. 
(Philippians 4:13, 2 Peter 1:3, John 3:33)
But still, I prefer he brushes his teeth in the morning before 
my morning kiss even though that does not always happen. 
Moving on.
I felt I needed to update my list with a picturesque fun addition.
My hubs is on vacation this week and he is working on an
 extreme room makeover for our Girl!
Another reason he is awesome!

He Rocks My World
I love rocks. I see so much God in them. It's just my thing.
So this year while in Maine visiting Coos Canyon, my hubby
 hid this away in his pocket for a full 24
hours before showing me his special find!
That is big for him, he barely can contain himself when it comes to giving
 things to his loved ones! And he wrote the little love note on it , too.
I know, say it: "awwww".
He Enjoys My Goofiness
We laugh a lot. About ridiculous, silly things.
Since I am an expert goof, this is good.

He Adds Beauty To My Life
& Sweet Surprises 
(which I sometimes don't notice until he tells me)

Case in point. I had picked some flowers and put them on the table.
The next day my hubby added the two small glasses with Black Eyed Susans.
As I putzed around the kitchen he finally asked if I had noticed anything.
 Um, no, course I did not.
But when I did, I was reminded of his 
thoughtful touches of beauty
which he is always adding to my life.
 He's Patient With Me
and Doesn't Mind The Occasional 
PB & J!
Sometimes he gets this in his lunch.
And he is OK with that.
Seriously, he puts up with this
daily!


 Give that man a HALO! 

Now I have an assignment for you, ladies:
Make your own list of the reasons why your husband is 
the awesome and sweetest guy 
God gave you and relish it and him. 
Let's bring glory to God by making sure we 
enjoy the husbands God has given us.
Even when our eyesight is a little off.
Maybe even More so then. 
Go, make your list!
