Have you told your husband lately how much you appreciate him? How much you respect him? How much you desire him? These are three of the most important things that I have found to be at the heart of my husband's needs. I think with Skip and I being apart so much this summer, I have really had to make it a point that when we are together, I am affirming him.
Even though we have dropped in salary quite a bit(our choice) since changing jobs, Skip has worked his booty off to make ends meet despite our home not selling. He has drummed up so many little jobs to keep us afloat, and I feel so overwhelmed at times because I am in awe of his service to our family. Just this month Skip is doing two weddings, several card designs for businesses, flyer's, and other graphic art designs. He is constantly trying to find extra sources of income until we sell our house. I just cried to him on the phone today thanking him for all he has been doing. He is so tired, but he still manages to come home and cook for me, do the yard work, iron his own clothes, not to mention leading worship at church each Sunday to a level that I know people are experiencing true communion with God. He also makes worship time fun! My prayer for Skip is that he will not have to wait much longer for things to settle down. I pray that he will find inspiration to keep going, to keep trusting, and to keep following the call to reach the lost.
I love this picture of us at last year's Fourth of July party because you can see his silly, mischievous smirk, and you can also see the love I have for my man. Have you told your hubby today how great you think he is? Go do it right now!
