And the best husband award goes to….

Can I just take a moment to brag on my husband?

Ok. Thanks.

Sometimes there are seasons in life where you just reflect on certain things.  Reflect on life.  This is one of those times.

God is good you guys.  So good. He is faithful and true!  I have just been taking some time to reflect on how He perfectly orchestrates our life together.  Everything is for my good.  For your good.

I know I say this often….but Tim and I are busy people!  We have a lot on our plate and are on the go all the time. 

My hubby is the College Director at our church, is going full-time at seminary, works full-time for Expedia, takes care of our home, is an incredible, loyal friend to people and most importantly is THE SWEETEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD! 

Sometimes he just amazes me with how he does everything and does it well.  I know he must be tired.  He works so hard. 

That is why I balled my head off when I came home from work last week and found this on the kitchen table…..

The most precious fall arrangement and the most heartfelt card.  It was full of sweet words about how great he thinks I am and thanking me for different things.

woah!  It blew me away.  I’m not blown away by receiving flowers exactly, because he is a thoughtful person and it’s flowers.  But I was blown away at the sheer surprise.  At the thoughtfulness of his words.  No matter how busy he was that week, he took time to bless me

Well, I was on cloud nine as you can imagine!  What a sweet way to start the weekend. 

So….today.  Today he does it again. 

Last night I had mentioned I was low on gas and that I needed to stop on my way to work this morning.  I had also mentioned that I needed to go to the store soon to get us some things for our lunches.  (I had just merely mentioned these things…)

I went to bed.  Husband stayed up to do some school work and study for teaching the college lesson tonight. 

I woke up this morning, open the fridge and there was a special surprise just for me!

He had picked up a salad for my lunch and left a cute little face on it. 

Then I get in my car to go to work and I had a full tank of gas!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was done people! He is just too precious.  He must have gone late at night to the gas station & wal-mart or early in the morning.

I was just overwhelmed this morning at what a special husband I have. 

And then I felt challenged too.  He has just been blessing me so much lately all the while he is so busy. 

What am I doing to bless my husband?  How am I encouraging him daily to be a better man?  What can I do to make his day better? How can I pray for him better?

I guess that is how the love wheel keeps on turning.  It’s give and take.  It’s selfless love.  Every day is exciting….I love spending my days with Tim.

So, my heart is just full today and I needed to type it all out!

I’m thankful for my husband!

I just wanted to share the challenge with you….since I have been challenged. 

How can we be a blessing to our husbands today? 

(or wife…if your a man reading my blog! haha!)  you never know….

xoxo,

Amanda
