do you see the photo of me and patrick in my blog header?
i really don’t like how i look in that photo. also, patrick has a goofy look on his face.
even so, i love the photo! i love it because it captured a sweet moment.
me laughing at some turkey thing my husband said or did.
he is really a champion at that. being a turkey, and making me laugh.
this is something i really love about him. he is hilarious. and he can almost keep up with my sass mouth.
not only do i talk a lot, i usually talk pretty loudly. patrick balances that out a bit. he is super quiet.
unless he knows you, you may find it hard to believe he has a talkative or funny bone in his body.
he has a very serious face. people often ask what he is angry about. must be the dark eyes and brows.
my husband gets frustrated like the rest of the human race, but he doesn’t really get angry.
me on the other hand…well, anyway, back to my husband.
i saw this print awhile ago and was thrilled to get one for my home. it really sums up how i feel.
two years ago, we moved 1500+ miles across the country to a new place, really only knowing my sister and her husband here. sure, i miss family and friends. but i am not sick over it. never have been. i feel at home here. not because i am so in love with north dakota-i am not, by the way. not because i have become super friends with the people here, because i have not. i feel at home here, because my husband is here.
god joined us together through marriage over five years ago.
we became a family.
we became a home.
i am growing more and more grateful each day.
patrick, i love you! i'm thankful for you.
by the grace of god,
you are my provider, my protector, my lover and my best friend.
my prayer for you today is:
lord, give him strength to lead.
Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.
lord, bless his work and show him daily how to honor you in his attitude and his spirit.
confirm the works of his hands to your purposes.
Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!
lord, help him to love you with all his heart, soul, mind and strength and hate evil.
you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
and just for fun, here's a photo of loud mouth me, and my sweetie. 2003 i think;)
linking up with precious heather.
