My Love

Can I tell you a little bit about my sweet, hard-working husband?

We've been married only 5 months but I've seen so much growth and strength in my husband. I'm blessed to have him and couldn't imagine life without him!

First, my husband is so handy and and very much a hard worker:

The above pictures are of Mackenzie and his brother Cameron in the process of fixing up our first home. We bought a manufactured home to start building our equity and boy was this house a can of worms! It took a lot of hard work. My husband with the help of me, his parents, and brothers did all of this work. It saved us a lot of money to do it ourselves (himself!) than to pay for someone else to do it. Some of the things that needed to be done: ripping up smelly carpet, replacing two walls due to dry rot, replacing a floor due to dry rot, DEEP cleaning, new doors, trim, culk, paint...etc. We still need to tile the bathrooms and work on the exterior of the house (painting and landscaping). But, I owe it all to my hard working husband! You are amazing honey! (By the way, I will try to do a post soon on the remodel of our house...I've been holding off on that but will soon!)

Second, my husband is so sweet and romantic to me:

He leaves me little love notes like these. I found this little note on my computer screen when I came home from work one day.

He brings me home flowers like these.

These sweet gifts like the note and flowers don't happen everyday but they make me feel so happy and loved. I feel loved everyday by him but when he takes the time to write me a little note, it means the world to me to know that he was thinking of me!

Third, he makes me laugh:

Fourth, He loves the Lord more than he loves me and that is so important to me:

Recently he's been doing some research and truth seeking. It has been so awesome to see him become stronger in the Word and in his relationship with God. In addition to his individual time with the Lord, he's involved in two separate bible studies. He amazes me.

Ok, so that was more than just a little bit about my husband, but I just couldn't resist!

I love you my favorite and I'm so blessed to call you my husband! Thank you for giving me so much love.

I want to encourage you ladies to pray for your husbands if you haven't started already. It's so important not only for them but for your relationship. I stumbled across 31 days of prayer for your husband that another blogger had linked to. You can find it here.

Have a blessed weekend!

Brittany, you've got yourself a winner there! I really enjoyed all of the pictures and the glimpse into your lives, as well as your marriage. Your husband is so sweet to leave you those little love notes! I know you will always cherish them. I have saved every, card, love note and love letter that my husband has written to me over the past 25 years.

It is such a gift from God to be treasured and loved by our husbands....and an even greater joy, to reverence, honor and love them! I can see that you are truly proud of your man! You go girl...keep on cheering for him. Thanks for sharing. ~ Debra

Sounds like a great guy!

I think it's so awesome that you guys bought a fixer upper.

Building equity is smart. I have friends in their 30's that haven't figured that out yet.

My husband could definitely take some lessons from yours:) Thanks for sharing that link, I just printed 4 copies to share with a few ladies and ofcourse myself. Have you seen the movie, " How Great is our God" by Louie Giglio? I think thats how you spell it

You are a wife that loves, honors and respects her husband. You are as much a rare and precious jewel to him as he is to you. I love my husband more everyday, imagine that after 25 years?
