My Valentine

I've had the blessing to have been with my sweet Valentine for over 17 years. Mere words cannot even begin to express my love for him. God's gracious plan to bring us together is such a gift. PandaPop and I are very best friends. We laugh together all the time. We dream of things to come. We cry over things not understood. We bicker. We make up. We play, work, struggle, question this weird world in which we live. We long for our eternal home. We pray together. We love planning for our Disney trip. We work really well as a team on ministry events. We LOVE watching our favorite shows together. We quote movie lines constantly. We love old music. WE LOVE JEEPIN'!!! We just absolutely LOVE being each other's mate. Honestly, there are some days I just can't get enough of my man.

Don't be fooled. None of this came without hard work from the very beginning.

No magic love-potion.

I love my man and I know he cherishes me. I also know he loves God more than me. He proves it everyday. That's the way it should be. I want to be the kind of wife that loves God more than she loves her husband or child. The kind of wife that brings her man great pleasure and whom he is glad to present to the world as his Love.

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
Proverbs 31:10

Thank you, my sweet PandaPop for being my husband.


  1. What a sweet post about your hubby.

    Happy belated V day to your sweet family.

  2. Awww..Happy Valentines Day you guys! Yesterday that is.. We were just talking about you guys tonight( over some Country fried bacon) about how awesome it is that you have such a miraculous husband- Girl face it- you got a miracle!
    I am sure your bro is tickled pink to discuss how you have a the "perfect guy". And how thats the "in" thing nowadays=) to have(hear me laughing?), he is so sweet to agree with me- isn't he!
    Love the pic of you guys!

  3. I hope two of my very favorite people in the world had a wonderful Valentine's Day :)

  4. It is an awesome thing to have that gift. God wants all of us to know that kind of love He has for us and wants us to be as grateful as you are. As so many struggle with divorce it is good to see a love like yours shinning God's love so bright. I feel very blessed to have a relationship quite like yours. My husband is my best friend and I am thankful he loves the Lord above all else. What a difference that makes. Love you bunches!!!

  5. This was really sweet! I love the picture of you look very in love and happy!
