loving. generous. fun. funny. calm. steady. missional.
and, babe, you’re only 30 today. you’ve only just begun.
As I love you and help you, as I am your wife – what a privilege and honor – I pray and sit back to watch as the Lord makes and molds and moves you into the man He desires you to be and become. You are that man – you are becoming that man. And as you steadily follow Him, surrender to Him, seek Him, … only further up and further in.
I love watching you become all that He has created and saved and called you to be.
I love celebrating you.
I love you.
Happy Birthday, my best friend. my husband, my love.
