Thankful Thursday

Join us for Thankful Thursday and don't forget to check out our hostess Iris @ Grace Alone.

I have so much to be thankful for in my life. I have beautiful boys,a loving husband,and so,so much more! Today, I want to give thanks for my husband. He is really the best man that God could have paired me with. We are SO different,but that is so good. We compliment one another. It's get crazy with kids in the house,but we have been striving to have better attitudes and not have higher expectations that we need for anyone in the home. Our bedroom can easily become overlooked since no one sees it but us. So the other day we cleaned out the corner and he did most of it! That afternoon he grilled and we played outside with the boys. Yesterday morning he let me sleep in until 9! Aaron was up at 6:50 and he gladly took him up front.

That is only some of what he does. He works very hard to provide for us and I am able to stay home with our boys daily. He doesn't complain if the grocery bill is a little more than it should have been,he trusts that I did my best. He doesn't leave his clothes all over the house and he doesn't put dishes with food on them in the sink. :) Even if he did, I couldn't complain. Some women think it is their right to complain,but really it's not. You married that man for a reason,because you love him for better OR for worse. There are many days that I have to repent because I too think to myself  'I never get a day off to just do nothing',but I am his help meet. He provides for us monetarily and spiritually. He is a strong man of God though he has weaknesses. I have many weaknesses too. He is a wonderful Father,stern,but loving. He disciplines the boys at times,when I would let it go. He sees they need it and desire it. I've have 2 kids and I'm not that size 2 anymore,but he loves me anyways. His love is not based on my looks or my body,it is based on me,my heart,and personality. Our marriage is not perfect,but it is a little piece of heaven on earth. We argue sometimes and have disagreements,but we work through them. God made us different for many reasons and we aren't to try to change the other into what we want. That is silly and just not God's will. His will is for us to strive together and to grow together despite our differences. I love my husband,deeper than I did at our dating stage,on the day I married him,and even since a year ago. I still see us as newlyweds and giggle about somethings. He is my beloved!
