27

It was 27 years ago today, that my wife and I went on our first date. I was a freshman in college and she a senior in high kimschool. We will have been married 22 years in June. In honor of this special day, I thought I’d post 27 things that I love about the most amazing woman I have ever known.

  1. She loves me second. She loves her Lord more than me.
  2. She has godly character and integrity. (Proverbs 31:10)
  3. She is an excellent wife. She is more than I deserve. (Proverbs 31:10)
  4. I can absolutely trust her with anything. (Proverbs 31:11)
  5. She is my best friend…has been for 27 years!
  6. She has always supported me and the ministry God called us to…even in difficult times. Always behind the scenes, never seeking limelight. (Proverbs 31:12 & 31:23)
  7. I can honestly say we have never had a fight…a knock down drag out…we’ve certainly disagreed and argued at times, but never fought about petty stuff. (even though I know I frustrate her at times!)
  8. She gets over stuff quickly, never holding a grudge…ever! We’ve never gone to bed angry (at least I don’t think so. 🙂 )
  9. She has an amazing amount of wisdom. (Proverbs 31:26)
  10. She teaches our children in godliness. (Proverbs 31:26)
  11. She has the gift of discernment…which has been of great benefit throughout our marriage and ministry.
  12. She still laughs with me! (Sometimes she just rolls her eyes 😉 )
  13. She is a strong woman, but she knows where her strength comes from. (Proverbs 31:17)
  14. She works incredibly hard. (Proverbs 31:18)
  15. She knows that her calling is to shape and impact another generation through our family and she never loses sight of that. (Psalm 78:5-7)
  16. She is humble.
  17. She shows great hospitality…even when she doesn’t always “feel” like it…and cares about others. (Proverbs 31:19-20)
  18. She sees everything we have as a blessing from the Lord.
  19. She takes care of our family’s needs. (Proverbs 31:21-22)
  20. She would lay her life down for our children and me. She even has a gun and knows how to use it!
  21. She manages our home extremely well, making our home a peaceful place. (Proverbs 31:27)
  22. She puts up with me! That’s a full time job!
  23. She makes me smile.
  24. She is caring and compassionate.
  25. She is dignified, modest and presents herself in a godly manner…and has taught our daughters to do the same. She is one classy lady! (Proverbs 31:25)
  26. She is an amazing mother. (Proverbs 31:28-29)
  27. She turned my head 27 years ago and still does today!

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her the product of her hands, And let her works praise her in the gates. – Proverbs 31:30-31

God has blessed me beyond measure for 27 years, I pray that there will be 27 more and more and more! I love you more today than ever!
