tyler, you’ve only just begun…


a godly man

a tall, handsome, blonde haired, clear blue eyed man

a smart, strategic, patient man

my husband

our sons’ daddy

a church member and servant

a musician

a guitar player

a minister of the gospel

a good faithful friend and partner and supporter to so many

a son and brother – a family member

a home owner

a diligent worker

loving. generous. fun. funny. calm. steady. missional.

A Man.

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.

Tyler, “I am convinced and confident – I am sure! – of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it; He will develop it; He will carry it onto completion, even until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].”- Philippians 1:6 (AMP + + PHILLIPS + NIV)

Here we are, babe. Our three and us… Praise the Lord.  Psalm 115:1                                                                    Our friend + professional photographer, Amy Free, took our family photographs just a week ago… and here is just one of the stunning images she captured. Of course we love her, and it was super-fun because our boys loved having “Miss Amy” take their picture, too.
