1 year, 9 months.
That’s how long I’ve been married to my sweet husband.
Today he woke me up like he usually does.
With sweet kisses and getting back into bed even though he has been up for 2 hours, to cuddle for a minute until I can actually open my eyes.
Then he did what he does sometimes,
him: “do you need some coffee?”
me: makes a sound that resembles mhmm
him: back with the coffee, holding it up to my nose, “come on make your noise”.
me: mmmm (you have to hear it in person to understand)
While he took a shower I prayed, and sipped my coffee, and rubbed my belly thanking God for our son.
He came out and we read a letter from a book called “Note to Self”. It is an excellent quick read, good for devotionals, etc. We highly recommend it.
This morning’s was a note to self about pride, the instigator of all sin. So good, humbling, and convicting. Wonder what I’ll do with it today?
Portion of 1 Peter 5:5 “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
Yesterday, Micah’s co-workers threw him and another lady a surprise baby shower. I was invited to come be part of the surprise. It was our first “shower” and as I saw him hold up those mini shoes and onsies, open the diapers and say he is going to try and change all of them (apparently our pastor gave him this advice, Kevin Hass- thank you.period.), hear his co-workers talk about how nice, sweet, helpful, and humble he is, and hear Micah talk about Haddon’s upcoming arrival with a sparkle in his eyes, I felt more blessed by the second.
Who am I that I get to spend my life with such an awesome man of God? It is evident he has an awesome reputation because of the transforming work Christ has done in his life, and it’s not only obvious to me.
We were learning about qualities of elders on Sunday and my heart literally felt like it was getting bigger and more grateful with every characteristic taught. I don’t care if Micah is ever an official “elder” of a church. He embodies so many things biblical men are supposed to look like. I am more than proud of him.
I am also humbled that he is my leader. I can’t wait to see him father Haddon.
We’ll spend our 1 year, 9 month anniversary by going on a Riverside Hospital Tour for labor and delivery and then scootin on over to bible study. When we get home we’ll eat Kate Sacra’s wedding cupcakes as is our monthly anniversary tradition.
I am thankful for one more day of waking up by his side, and one more month of marriage. I hope for many more.
Thank you Father for my sweet husband who teaches me and makes life so full.
