Today is my husband’s 28th birthday. Today I am praising God for blessing my in-laws with one of God’s best gifts 28 years ago.
I’m praising Him for the man that child grew to be, for saving him and sanctifying him. I’m praising God for intertwining our stories together and for preparing him to be the loving, sacrificing, encouraging husband he is today.
Bryan I am so thankful for you. Next to the cross of Jesus, you really are God’s best gift to me. You help me up the countless times that I’ve fallen. You remind me of my identity in Jesus when it seems I’ve lost myself. You bring me joy and laughter and remind me constantly of God’s goodness and faithfulness. You encourage me regularly and are my biggest cheerleader.
I know I tell you this all the time, but I really don’t know how I would have made it through the past 3+ years without you. You remind me of truth. When I’m flailing, you keep my feet planted firmly on the ground. You shout through my sinful thoughts and renew my love for the gospel. You hold me through my tears and whisper reminders of God’s grace and goodness. You’re patient and remind me that God’s timing is good. You rejoice with me as we dream and hope together.
Thank you. I know Jesus so much more because of you. I am constantly blessed by you. Happy birthday.
