Thankful Thursday ....
I give thanks today for  this guy, we have been best friends for a very long time. He is the one that God chose for me to live my life with. The highlight of my day is when I hear the back door open and he says Hey!  I'm home.


I once heard someone say that one  true test of your love is ... when you are apart you are thinking about that person, and long to be together again,and that is the way I feel about this guy..... Just as I long to be in the presence of my Lord, and to look in His face and tell him "Thank You for all you did for me".


My guy has such a gentle and loving heart, he loves me just as I am, never tries to change me.
Ephesians 6:22~ Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.~For the husband is head of the wife,as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 


I took this photo yesterday as we were working on an on going  house project. He has been so patient and encouraging as we have been at it for a while. It was very warm hot as he was on this 12 ft. ladder. 
I am also thankful,that we are almost at the end of this project.  Hope to share real soon.
I am thankful for all of the many projects we have worked on together,through out our marriage, when you live and work this close together, your lives become so intwined, even to finishing each others sentences. lol


I Corinthians 13:13~ And now abide faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is Love.


This year I have really tried to put forth more of an effort to be more thankful  for all my blessing, and there are many! God is so gracious to us. 


Enjoy your day!
Hugs,
Sue
