My Love

My love turns 41 years old today. A day I cherish and treasure. Without this day, there would be no
"us" and that just breaks my heart.
Chris is my very best friend, the one my soul clicks and connects with. We finish each other's sentences or say the same thing at the same time. It's scary and funny all at once.
I've seen my guy change over the years of our dating and marriage, and for the better. I thought he was pretty amazing at the beginning, and now, he blows my mind. He loves the Lord passionately and deeply and is a fantastic example for my boys to look up to as a man after God's heart. He dotes on me, makes me feel special and loved. One thing I adore about Chris is that he loves to snuggle. And he doesn't mind when I put my feet on his lap, or suggest to him he play with my hair.
Chris is a fantastic daddy. He loves our boys and desires the best for them, even if it hurts them in the process. I love his playful attitude, his compassionate ways, his manliness in teaching our kiddos how to be men in a world that defines men as something other than what God does. My fella loves music and showers the boys with different types of music on a weekly basis. He opens their eyes to art and the beauty around them.
I love my husband so very much. I'm thankful God has allowed us to be a part of His story together. So, today, my dear man, Happy Birthday! I love you!


  1. Aw, this is a sweet post, Joi. I know how you feel. I've been married forty-one years to my hubby last July....and it keeps getting better. We are indeed blessed. :)
