MY HUSBAND IS THE BEST

I have a pretty wonderful, handsome husband, one of the best. He takes his role as husband and father and now grandfather very seriously, actually he takes all his roles in life like that.

My main man
He endeavours to carry out his duties, his work to the best of his abilities. He wants his children to develop the same characteristics, he wants them to develop diligence and conscientiousness.  He definitely shows them these character qualities.

At the moment he is an elder in our church, and at the moment there are some issues that have arisen.  It is now 11pm and he is out mowing the lawn (mower has lights) thinking and talking to God about these issues.  He has been known to take long midnight walks doing the same thing.

Maybe he has church issues or family issues or money issues on his mind.  It seems a good way for him to find some solitude to sort things out with God.

He is also great with the children and is a joker as well, he loves to stir them up and make them laugh.  He enjoys tickling them and watching them love it.

He listens to me and he has always cared for me.  When I have gone to hospital to have our children (all by caesarean section) he has always been by my side.  He has never left me in the lurch and he stands by me.

He puts up with my moods and my grumps and he tells me he understands but then he gently tells me I need to get over it.

He is just great and I love him and I am so thankful that God has put us together, that he gave me my soul mate at only age 20.  We have had the past 26 years together and it only gets better.  I love him more and more each day and can’t imagine a life without him.

Now so you don’t think that we are all perfect – my husband is just great, but he is not perfect, he has his moments just like I do.

My advice to young women looking for the perfect man – just stop, there is no such thing.  Look for a Godly man who loves his mother and cares for his family and puts Gods first in his life and you’ve found the right one.  Don’t get married and try and change him accept him as he is and help him be the best and greatest he can be. That’s what being a helpmeet is all about.

 

This song says it all about my relationship with my husband…

Kenny Rogers – Through the Years

I can’t remember when you weren’t there
When I didn’t care for anyone but you
I swear we’ve been through everything there is
Can’t imagine anything we’ve missed
Can’t imagine anything the two of us can’t do
Through the years
You’ve never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you
Through the years
I’ve never been afraid
I’ve loved the life we’ve made
And I’m so glad I’ve stayed
Right here with you
Through the years
I can’t remember what I used to do
Who I trusted whom, I listened to before
I swear you’ve taught me everything I know
Can’t imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more
Through the years
Through all the good and bad
I knew how much we had
I’ve always been so glad
To be with you
Through the years
It’s better everyday
You’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay
I’ll stay with you
Through the yearsThrough the years
When everything went wrong
Together we were strong
I know that I belonged
Right here with you
Through the years
I never had a doubt
We’d always work things out
I’ve learned what love’s about
By loving you
Through the yearsThrough the years
You’ve never let me down
You’ve turned my life around
The sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you
Through the years
It’s better everyday
You’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay
I’ll stay with you
Through the years

  1. Great advice, Terri! There really aren’t perfect men out there but that’s good news because there aren’t perfect women out there either! Your tribute to your husband is sweet and inspiring. I’m also amazed at the life you and your hubby live on a farm (in Canada, right?). I used to tell my mom when I was little that I was going to live on a farm in a barn with my six kids! My life turned out far from that childhood vision. 😉 Thanks for linking up at Wedded Wed!

  2. How sweet! It’s so wonderful that God has blessed you with a great man! And how wonderful of you to share with others how great he is. It’s refreshing to see a woman lift up her husband and praise him to others instead of the stereotypical griping about him.

    May God continue to bless the both of you!
