Loving my Husband…Day 1

If you’re on Facebook perhaps you have seen this challenge…to post a picture of your spouse for 7 days to show how loving and wonderful he/she is and nominate 2 friends each day to keep it going.  I don’t always accept challenges like this, but this one grabbed my attention.  Over the next 7 days I feel compelled to not only post a picture, but attempt to explain and express the countless ways I love my husband.  In nominating 2 friends, I will do my best to then nominate friends whose husbands also demonstrate that quality.

Ok…so day one.  One of the things I love most about my husband is that he is an amazing dad to our precious children.  There are so many photos I cherish that demonstrate his deep love and care for these little blessings.  This one however may be my most favorite.  Maxwell Meeting Grandpa FerdNathan has such deep gratitude that God made him a father.  When I tell him I love how he is such a great dad, he says it’s because God is so good to have given him such an amazing dad.  The bond he and his dad share has carried straight into the next generation to our kids.  And while Nathan and Emalynn have such a sweet and close relationship, there is something so special about a dad and his son.  Nathan was so proud to introduce his dad to our boys.  He is the only Benham grandson carrying on the name from his beloved grandfather Nan, as was his dad.  God giving him 2 sons to do the same is immeasurably more than he could’ve ever dreamed.  Seeing his dad with our kids brings Nathan such great joy.

I praise and thank God that my husband is such an amazing dad.  It makes me feel so loved not only by Nathan but by God.  He knew deep in my heart this quality is what I so desired in a spouse.  I am so thankful that I was graciously given an incredible earthly father and that He did the same for my children.  What a great God we have when He shows us tiny glimpses of how He is such a good, good Father.

“Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”  Matthew 6:26

Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.  Psalm 103:13

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21
