Today is Andrew's birthday! He is 27 today... basically an old man! Lots of things have been changing with Andrew and I lately (I'll be blogging on that later in the week!) but today is completely focused on celebrating the life of Andrew. There are so many wonderful things that I love about my husband.
Andrew, this is why I love you:
(Active- in action or full operation.)
You are always active in finding ways to better provide for your family. I appreciate you for this… More than you will ever know.
(Numinous- Of or concerned with the spirit rather than the body or material things. Spiritual.)
You have become such a man of God. And as I sit back and watch, you inspire me to love God more and more.
(Devoted- faithful, constant, loyal, devout.)
This is one of your best qualities. You are the most loyal person I have ever met. I am so thankful that the Lord gave our future children such a wonderful example of what it is to be loyal.
(Remarkable- Worthy of notice or attention.)
You are such a leader... and whether you can help it or not... you are gaining attention in all aspects of your life. But the best part about your character is that you do not set out to gain attention. And when you do gain attention, you stay humble. Your character is remarkable.
(Effective- adequate to accomplish a purpose; producing the intended or expected result: effective teaching methods; effective steps toward peace.)
I love you for being effective in my world. For whenever I shut down, you bring peace and teach me how to show you my feelings. You are a great teacher and you always accomplish your purpose in whatever you are doing.
(Willing- Cheerfully consenting or ready.)
I know that moving here to be with me was hard... And I know that starting a new job was nerve raking. But even in the midst of all that fear you remained joyful and willing. I love you for this.
This past Saturday I threw a huge party for Andrew at Dave and Buster's. We had about ten couples there. They opened up overflow seating and we were able to have our own room for the party with TV screens and a pool table. I made a delicious cake (I was so proud of myself) for the party. The party could not have gone better!
Happy Birthday Andrew... I hope that you realize how special you are!
