I would like to tell you about my husband and why he’s worth it.
First of all, my husband is a man of God. He is often explaining things from the bible to me, giving me a better perspective, and reminding me that it is Christ who does the work and not me. He is humble, cares for others, and passionate about the gospel. He’s a gifted teacher when it comes to biblical knowledge.
Second, he is brilliant and I mean he’s the most intelligent man I’ve ever known, I am daily amazed by his insight, his memory and his skills with dealing with people and problems. He’s especially skillful with computers and programming, but his memory is amazing also, he can quote books he read ten years ago and has amazing debate abilities. He’s a very quick thinker.
Third, he’s very funny. He’s always making me laugh, we laugh often in our home and it isn’t because of serious me. He tackles me to the floor and tickles me if I get in a bad mood and he refuses to stop until I’m laughing along with him. He’s very quick with making up jokes and he sends me funny cartoons daily in my email just because he enjoys the thought of making me laugh while he is away at work.
I have never thought of my husband as beta, he’s very aggressive and very strong, there’s just this raw masculine roughness he has that he’s a little self-conscious about but I don’t think he realizes how sexy it makes him.
He’s also very kind with me, he teases me often, but he knows not to go too far as to hurt me and he knows when I need a gentler touch. He sincerely cares about what I think and feel.
He’s an amazing provider for us, he spoils me with surprises and he’s very generous with money that he gives to me and our kids. He takes me on amazing dates often.
He’s very socially skilled, he comes alive when he’s with large groups of people and can make them laugh and he often is the main entertainment. I already foresee how successful this is going to make his career, he will have many doors opened because of this ability.
He is an amazing father for our three girls. He wrestles with them, he is reading and introducing them to Chronicles of Narnia books and movies, he makes breakfasts for us on weekend mornings, he gives them lots of attention and he takes us out as a family. He does daddy-daughter dates. He even warns me if he thinks I’m being too harsh with them. All of our daughters anticipate his return home from work everyday and they run to him and give him kisses. It was his idea for us to do homeschooling and he had to convince me and I’m so glad we are.
He’s handy around the house, he has put in a new bathroom, new closets, new roofing, painted, sheet rocked walls, he fixes plumbing, he fixes broken computers, he builds bookshelves, he’s remodeled our kitchen, he’s tiled floors, patched our basement foundation, put a fence up for the kids. I don’t think there’s anything he can’t do when it comes to our home.
These past few years have been big growing years for both of us, he’s been so patient with me and I’m not the easiest person to live with. I’m changing a lot, but so is he, I see God working on him and working in his life and it is neat to watch.
