August 5th

Yesterday was my husband's 66th birthday. 

Let me say he is always happy. 

Only sometimes grumpy - 

but he says he's earned the right.

I've only known him for four years.

That's so hard for me to believe.

I feel like I've known him forever.

He's perfect for me.

God knew what I needed,

I prayed often for what I thought I needed.

I have a journal of lists.

One list I made in 2009 before I met him and it is titled

"Who I would like to find"

1. A Christian man - spiritual leader
2. One that I respect
3. Someone who cherishes me
4. Some common interests
5. Loves me unconditionally
6. Whose face lights up when I walk into a room
7. Someone who respects me
8. A man I cherish
9. One I can love unconditionally
10. A man I can not imagine living without.

 my lists are always numbered to 10 -

But I had to add #11 

11. A man who is appealing to me physically. :)

12. Oh, and I wanted someone who liked to sit on the porch 
and just enjoy being together!!

Then another -

13. A man with a great sense of humor! 

Well, again, I limited God with this list,

and the way I know that is because

God gave me so much more.

It's amazing what God has done for me.

Happy Birthday to the very best man for me!


  1. Yes, that worked out extremely well for you guys. I'm so happy that you are so happy now. Heaven knows you earned it, putting up with unhappiness for so long. I often use you two as an example of how meeting people online can work out, whenever people start in how how ridiculous they think it is.

  2. Debra, I know!! When I think back on it, I wonder what I was thinking!! But it worked for us. You should see the looks we get when we're asked how we met! It is unconventional, I guess. Hey, You can use me as an example anytime you want!!
