Thursday Thirteen #5

Since we are still in February and it's LOVE month, I thought I'd stick with the LOVE theme. Actually, I think we should show LOVE every day. If we focused on showing LOVE we wouldn't have time to be mean or cruel. But that just what I think. :o)

Thirteen Reasons Why I Love...
My Knight

* He seeks God's face every day. In seeking God, he tries follow His Word. His Word says, "Husbands, love your wives just as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for her,"
-Ephesians 5:25 He shows me everyday, just how much he loves me.

* He loves me unconditionally. I know this may sound hard to believe, but it's true. When we got married he vowed take me as his wife, to have and to hold from that day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; and promised to be faithful to me until death parts us. This summer we will celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. He is true to his word. He's loved me through it all...

* When I was a little girl I dreamed of marrying a Knight in shining armor, a Champion, a Defender, a Prince. He is the man of my dreams... no... he's more than what I dreamed possible. He's surpassed my expectations.

* He's an encourager. He's got this, "you can do it" attitude. He makes me feel like I can do anything.

* He's unwavering. He stands firm for what he believes. To him there's only black and white, no gray. I admire his convictions. Right is right and wrong is wrong. No sitting on the fence.

* I can trust and depend on him.

* When he's wrong, he's quick to say so. Which to tell the truth, he's seldom wrong. I'm not exaggerating here, I'm telling the truth. My man is one of a kind. :o)

* He makes my heart skip beats.

* He makes me feel like I'm the most important person in his life.

* He's a great provider.

* His blue eyes melt my heart.

* We fit perfectly.

* He makes me whole.

I have got to say, that it was hard to limit my list to only thirteen . When it comes to him, my list would be endless. He's my everything. I'm so blessed that God saw fit to bring us together. I'm looking forward to the many years we have ahead of us. My life with him has been and is awesome. I keep thinking, "it can't get any better than this!" But it has and it keeps getting better. I believe in "Happily Ever After", I'm living it...

Thanks for stopping by my TT! Sounds like you have quite a man. I like that you describe him as "unwavering." An excellent quality to have in a partner.

Congratulations on 25 years (and I thought that reaching 12 next month would be an accomplishment) - and wow, what a sweet entry.

Mom Nancy said...

Your knight in shining armor sounds like my guy, even including the blue eyes and the rarely wrong thing. We'll celebrate our 20th in April and it amazes me every day how lucky I am, in this world, to find such a wonderful man.

Thanks for stopping by my TT.

Crystal said...

Aww, this is one of the best T13 lists I've ever read. It's very sweet. I feel like I could have written it myself, except I've only been married to my better half for 6 years so far. :)

Happy T13! :)
