There is a Man…

There is a man on this earth whom I love more than words could express.
This man is never too proud to stoop down and help another who is in need. It doesn’t matter what they look like, smell like, or their status in life.
This man is not too high to open a door for another to go in before him. He doesn’t need to be seen or heard to ‘feel’ accepted.
This man is never ‘too tired' to get up at night if the children call for him.
This man is not afraid to help with the dishes or take out the garbage.
This man is not stopped by anything that breaks but usually can fix it….in fact wherever he goes he looks for things that need to be fixed.
This man will not brag about all the things he did when he was young….for it is a grief to him.
This man made a covenant with his eyes never to look at a woman with lust and I’m so grateful to never have seen his eyes linger on another woman.
This man is a peacemaker, and a quiet leader.
This man weeps when he thinks of the many souls going lost, who count the pleasures of this world of more worth than the riches of God’s grace.
This man longs to have more holiness in his own life.
This man is my best friend and today even though he is far away we celebrate his birthday. Happy Birthday, honey….we love you!!
