Day #2 – 30 Days of Thankfulness

When I walked into Barnett Bank on Bee Ridge Road  in Sarasota, Florida to start my first day of a new job, I didn’t know that I would also be meeting my husband.  I was born in Sarasota, Florida in 1975, but my family moved shortly after I was born to Dallas, Texas.  I spent my life there until I was 17 and moved around a bit after that.  But, in June of 1996, I made it back to Sarasota, Florida and, quite ironically, met my future husband.  One of the most amazing things about our meeting was that we were both Christians, but not actively pursuing God at that time.  I am constantly grateful that God still had me in His mind and was still in control, because although I didn’t have it in the forefront of my mind, God knew that I needed a godly man for my husband.

Tim and I were married on November 29, 1997…after only knowing each other for about 17 months!  I cannot begin to list all of the reasons why I am so thankful for my husband, but I will give it a try:

  • He is the perfect man for me in every way
  • He is strong in his commitment to me and our marriage
  • He is the best father for our boys, Jacob and Jonathan
  • He is a good provider and has always done his very best for us
  • He loves God and enjoys serving others
  • He is a leader
  • He is smart and a hard worker
  • He is honest, compassionate, and always willing to give a helping hand
  • He has been by my side through many trials that we have faced in our marriage
  • He is my best friend
  • He has always been the first person I want to see in the morning and the last person I want to see before I go to bed
  • He loves me in spite of my many flaws
  • He makes me feel special and beautiful
  • He would do anything for me
  • He is the love of my life!!

There is so much more I could say about Tim, but I think you get the picture!  I am so grateful that while I wasn’t looking, God provided me with the perfect husband!

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Gen. 2:18)

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Gen. 2:24)
