Every morning, I have the joy of starting my day out by reading the blog (i)ncourage
The posts always loudly clang in my ears sometimes, causing me to nod my head into Shaken Lady syndrome and other times, tears fill my eyes.
The post today invited us all to share about our mysterious man. I thought to myself, "I have one of THOSE!!!" and knew that this was a post meant for me.
My mysterious/mystery man came into my life when I least expected it, yet desired it. I longed for a man that I could trust, one that I could laugh with, share with, travel the roads with, worship with and more than anything, dream dreams with. In my mysterious man, I found that and more.
I found that my mystery man has a huge heart for love, especially for me and for his kids. He amazes me as he holds them in his lap, gets on all fours and give them horseback rides, appeases their hearts for endless Bubble Tape, listens to his teen son share the excitement of his day, including encouraging him to be the best he can be.
My mystery man is soft spoken but allows me to be goofy, silly and then comes out with something goofy to match mine or one up my "goofy".
My mystery man never hangs up the phone without telling me that he loves me.
My mystery man has such a heart for God and has invited me on his ministry journey as a pastor.
My mystery man enjoys spending time around my girls and their Boos, intrigued and proud of the things that they are passionate about.
My mystery man doesn't mind getting dirty, watching chick flicks with me or with the his daughers (iCarly), holding my hand and being affectionate with me because he knows how much I like that.
My mystery man has gained strength from his past and brings to me wisdom, and together, we make an incredible blend. He is the jelly in my peanut butter sandwich.
My mystery man is wise, honest and reflective and a listener, never saying, "I told you so."
My mystery man is the one that I will spend the rest of my life with, loving, cherishing and laughing together in this thing we call "life".
He's not a mystery to me - he is a gift, a precious one at that.
And on, July 2nd...yep....in a few weeks..
he will be my husband.
Together, we will begin our life long adventure!
Tell me about your mysterious man/woman.
how to love your kids well
