Just praisin' my man!

I feel compelled to praise my husband today for the wonderful man he is. Not only has he had to serve as the pseudo-contractor while trying to work from home, but in the last week he orchestrated the purchase of a car for me :) Lest you think we have oodles of money to throw around especially on a new car, please think again; my current car is 17 years old and has almost 250,000 miles on it, and we needed a more viable replacement. It's my dream car still, a 2003 Honda Accord. Enough about the car though, back to my husband.

He's been such a sweetheart because he had to take time off of work today to get the license plate and registration for it, the keys programmed, and the insurance application. Not only that, he just surprised me at work by dropping it off so I could drive it home :) What a guy! I am so blessed to have a godly man who is constantly surprising me with kindness.

He has also been patient with me during this entire renovation process. Trust me ladies, when your kitchen is uprooted from beneath you, you'll be more than flustered. He has taken this in stride and has done everything in his power to ease my apparent "suffering."

One last thing, I forgot to tell you what he gave me for Valentine's. He surprised me with three frames mounted above our headboard in the bedroom. The middle and largest one is my bridal portrait. The left one is a picture from our first dance that show only his hands around the back of my waist. The right one is from the same pose, only this time you see my hands wrapped around the back of his neck. What's more romantic is that he had the vows we said to each other placed under both of the photos. :) (I will reprint those on a future post). He is so thoughtful and no one I've ever met compares with him! God has been so good to me by blessing me with Brent.

Oh how very sweet! Isn't it wonderful to have a husband you can call Beloved and mean it. God is good! You should post pictures of your pictures. I would love to see it!
