In everything giving thanks-2

Today I am grateful for my husband. Back when I first started blogging, I dedicated a post to things I love about my husband. It's worth re-posting here as I thank God for this man who has pledged to love me no matter what--and he does! He loves me though sometimes I wonder why. He is truly evidence of the Lord's goodness to the least deserving!

"Things I Love About My Husband." (Please note the list is not exhaustive, nor is it in any specific order...)

1. He loved me first.

2. He loves the Lord Jesus.

3. He makes me laugh.

4. He is a great Daddy to our four boys!

5. He works hard to take care of and provide for our family.

6. He is a man of honesty and integrity.

7. He is really smart, especially with all things technical and electronic.

8. He thinks everything I do is wonderful.

9. He never complains when the house is a mess, the dishes not washed, the clothes aren't clean, and we're having cereal for supper. Again.

10. Did I mention he makes me laugh?

11. He loves me still, after all these years and all these children and all those times he's seen me at my absolute worst.

I am blessed beyond measure and today, as every day for many years now, I am profoundly grateful for my husband.


  1. What a precious tribute!

    Love #3 & 10. But you didn't put he thinks you're funny?! :-)

  2. I love hearing this kind of thing! Praise God for a blessed marriage!

  3. It's wonderful to hear a wife thanking God for her husband and expressing appreciation for him!

  4. Good post, Lisa. It's always helpful to remember and pay tribute to why you love someone. I try to do this when I'm mad at my husband!

  5. You all are just darling!

    Thanks for weighing in today and offering your voice. An easy "write" for me; a much harder "aftermath" if you get my drift.
