This is what I came home to when I looked at my hubby's facebook today. It's not even that big of a deal, but to me it is. He's not a big P.D.A. guy, so this just brought tears to my eyes. I am a little dorky, so of course I would cry. Did you expect any less? I just can't help but think how blessed I am to have found a hubby who is this unbelievably loving. I honestly never thought I would find a love like this. One that reminds me of the grace of God...

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Everyone knows this passage from Corinthians 13. But sometimes I think people forget the entire meaning and all of the beauty in the entirety of the passage.

Sometimes I think that my hubby doesn't realize how amazing he is. Sometimes I feel like I'm the first person to ever tell him that, even though he's deserved it all along. I tell him everyday how lucky I am. One day he'll realize it. It's always been the little things that I can count on him doing. The way he looks at me or the way he let's me be me. We're each others best friends. I'm so thankful to have him in my life. More than anything.

I know exactly what you mean Dana. I cannot find the words to express how thankful I am for my husband. He's truly amazing, I also feel like I'm the first one to tell him.

Btw, I love reading your blog.

When I read that on facebook I was SHOCKED because I know how he is with the whole public expression type things..... :) I'm not gonna lie that it didn't bring a tear to my eye as well

aww thanks Heather. At first I thought only Trish read it b/c she's my only official follower (not that that's bad b2b) but I've been finding out that a lot of ppl do b/c of facebook. It means a lot to me b/c it gives me a good outlet. Keep reading!

As for the hubby's- I guess God knows who we're meant to be with. And for some reason the really amazing ones are always the last to know :) I think that's why they're meant to be with us amazing women as well, so we get to remind them :)

Trish, I know right?! I was pretty much shocked on that one. but then again, he never ceases to amaze me :)

yeah for amazing hubbys!
