The List Goes On

Today is the first day of our 30-day Husband Encouragement Challenge. Have you said something positive to your spouse yet? Have you told anyone how blessed you are to be married to the love of your youth? Well get cracking!

I’ll start the ball rolling.

I am incredibly blessed to be married to my best friend. He is so much more than I deserve and unbelievably patient with my flaws. (And trust me, there are many!) He loves me the way God loves his church. He loves me when I am most unloveable. Thank you Kevin. I love you!!!

If you look at number 221 on my list you’ll see that when daddy tenderly loves and cares for his children, he blesses his wife. I am blessed by my Lord through my husband.
