Happy 28th

The love of my life turned 28 yesterday. How are we two years from 30 already?? Is it really possible that our TEN-year high school reunion is this year?

I don't (at least most of the time) take for granted how blessed I am to have this man in my life. He is strong--and I never, ever feel threatened by his strength, only protected. He is wise, when I am so often foolish. He is endlessly patient--a fundamental requirement for being married to me, I am sure.

I often marvel at two things: his brilliance and his good looks :) Steve is so smart--I love his creative engineer mind, always coming up with better ways to do things. I love to have deep conversations with him about all kinds of topics. And he just keeps getting more and more handsome! I thought he was SO hot when we were I look back at pictures of us then and laugh. He was a little boy then; the man he has become is even better looking!

OK, now that my audience is gagging...In all seriousness, I have so much admiration and respect for my husband. He's a hard worker, a man of integrity, a selfless servant who never complains or loses his temper. He models Christ to me in so many ways, and because of him, I am a better me. It has been my privilege to celebrate the last seven birthdays by his is my prayer that we will get to celebrate many, many more.

Happy birthday, Steve!
