He saw something in me that I didn't see myself. Still does.
While still engaged he told me, " I will help you beat this thing." I had nowhere else to turn. And he did.
In sickness and in health, he promised. Those first few years of marriage tested that promise. He did.
5 daughters and 2 sons later he has been my protector and provider, my lover and my laughter, my encourager and embracer, my knight in shining armour.
He has loved our children deeply. He has loved me deeply.
He has led our family with a faith unshakable.
We have grown, we have changed, we have shared, we have journeyed.....and we still do and will.
For this momentary relationship that should personify the mystery of the Love of Christ and sacrifice of His life and the submission and respect for Him from the Church of the Living God to a lost and dying world. For this momentary relationship that has all the potential to bring glory to God and pleasure to his countenance, I am forever grateful for this man who turns 38 today. What a privilege to have spent the last 14 years of it with him. I pray for many, many, many more.
The children are grateful for their daddy's.....
The prayers for little Joshua and Stephen as he puts them to bed.
The times he has taken them hunting.
That he is willing to stay longer in the woods for the one who is determined to get a deer.
The times he plays with them.
Days that he is off from work and at home with them.
Cheers for them at their soccer games.
Organization of family soccer games, kick ball, basketball, etc...
Role as their pastor and principal.
Willingness and work toward being a GREAT father!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Keith!! We love you very much!
Nichole, Madison, Morgan, Mallory, Meghan, Joshua, Stephen, and Maleah
