Happy Birthday!

Today is my husband's birthday.  Happy Happy Birthday to the man that I love beyond words.  Today I am so thankful for the man God has given me to share my life with.  I have been praying for God's abundant blessings to poured out on his life today.  That God would pour out His grace & mercy on Jon and bless him beyond what I could ever imagine for him.  Today we celebrate the man God created in my husband.  That his life would be used to bring God glory & honor & praise.  What an amazing story God is writing with this man's life, and I am honored to be a part of it.

So why a picture from our engagement pictures?  Well, today is also an anniversary.  Fourteen years ago today (February 12, 1999), Jon got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.  He said my saying yes was the greatest gift I could ever give him for his birthday.  I have so many wonderful memories of that night.  They make me smile.  And when I look back over all these years, with all of it's ups & downs, saying yes is a decision that I would never, ever take back.  So his birthday will always hold a special place in our hearts.  It was a beginning of a wonderful, God-inspired lifetime journey that we are on together.  And I am so excited to see where it leads us.  God is so good isn't He!!

My beloved, may you have many more years.  May you be blessed by our loving Father, drawing near to us as we draw near to Him.  I thank God for you each and every day.  YOU ARE LOVED!
