Over four years ago, God placed this amazing man into my life. I have no clear recollection of that exact moment when God connected us, but that is kind of irrelevant at this point. It’s just not the most important part.
Sometimes I get caught up in trying to remember all of the little details of how I met Justin that I miss the bigger picture… the whole POINT of the story. The point being that God brought us together. We overcame many obstacles to get to where we are today… to be husband and wife! All of those obstacles have led to a true love story… not a “perfect” love story, but a TRUE love story.
Does it really matter exactly how/when/why we met each other? Getting caught up on those little tiny details aren’t bringing Him glory; getting caught up on those tiny details are like questioning and trying to piece together His wonderful work – it’s almost like “quizzing God” – and I don’t ever want to do that! Questioning God in that way is like trying to understand something so much bigger than us. We will never fully understand it! …at least until we are face to face with our Maker one day (but that’s another post for another day).
I’m kind of getting off topic… So what brings me here today, you ask?
My amazing, patient, kind, caring, courageous, humble, adoring, GRACIOUS and LOVING husband …on Valentine’s Day J
I don’t really believe that you should extravagantly celebrate Valentine’s Day – I think you should show your significant other that you love him/her EVERY DAY.
But today I want to gush about my husband, because I am blessed and I want the world to know it!!
Justin is the most loving man I have ever met. When I met Justin (or for those that know our story, when I “re-met” him) he showed me something so much bigger than anything I was ready for at the time. At the time, I was head-down ready to finish school, climb the corporate ladder and be “successful.” (I quote successful because that term so relative. I was ready to achieve “professional success”. However, the more time I began spending with Justin I began to measure my “success” differently. My mom says that Justin humbles me – which is more of what I strive to achieve, not success.)
Justin GRACIOUSLY loved me when I was going through this transitional period of my life… he graciously CONTINUES to love me! I’m still trying to grasp this type of love, because it is so much more than anything I ever could have imagined.
The thing that I love the most is how he graciously loves others, as well. It’s simply amazing! I can honestly say that he is the last person to judge another person or situation. He just doesn’t do it J
I could go on and on about my wonderful husband, but I’ll stop gushing here and leave the rest for other blog posts J
Happy Valentine’s Day to my husband… my flesh… my better half… 😉 my best friend!! I love you!
