Happy Birthday to My Prince

*{this is a repost from Janurary 2011 in order to enter a 'My Husband Rocks' contest}

Today my husband blows out candles, today he turns one year older, today he has more respect from me than ever before. I love the fact that God knew Matthew in his momma’s womb and that He fashioned him.

It amazes me that Grace swept over Matthew years ago and caused him to fall desperately in love with Jesus. I rejoice in God sending many people to disciple him and show what an Unwasted Life looks like. I celebrate in God for preparing Matthew and I for an exact moment to meet {on a Mission Trip} where neither of us were supposed to be. I delight that he is my Protector, Provider, Lover, Spiritual Leader, Father to our children, and that he Loves Jesus. He has discipled me more than any other person in my life, he has {and still does} help me wrestle through hard doctrines and theologies, he teaches me by example and he is my BFF.

Today as I bake a cake for my husband I rejoice knowing I’m a jaded girl who has been found by a Prince. The Prince somehow sees something in the girl {amidst all her faults and failures} and makes her his Princess. My Prince sees my sin more than anyone else, he sees my unfaithfulness to Christ, he sees my unforgiving spirit, my self-control issues and everything else I fight against yet he loves me more than anyone else.

Happy Birthday to the Love of my Life… Matthew!

  1. What a lovely tribute to your husband! You are indeed blessed to have had a God-fearing man from the very beginning. I pray for each of my four daughters everyday that God is preparing the hearts of their future husbands, even now.

    My own husband didn't really begin living a God-filled life until we were married for about 10 years.. but you know the saying "Better late than never!"

    Birthday blessings to your hubby and I wish you and your 'prince' all of God's Graces and Blessings. (P.S. I LOVE how you call him your prince... just recently I was telling my four year old the story of Sleeping Beauty (again!) and I told her that her father was my prince. She LOVES to hear that. She looks up at our wedding picture and says that I look like a princess and Daddy is my prince.)

  2. So sweet! It's wonderful to see men and women publicly proclaiming their love and admiration to their spouses! Today is a great day to be born...my little girl's birthday is today, also!
