To my wonderful guy...


I think that my husband is probably one of my most devoted readers here.  And normally, I would take that for granted but when I really stop to think about it, I realize how cool it is.  He takes time from his busy day to read the rambles that fall from my head and onto this keyboard.  Just to feel closer to me.

We've had more than our fair share of trouble and he's not once left my side.  He thinks that I'm beautiful.  He thinks that I'm smart.  He lets me know that he needs me.  He sees the good in me.  He helps me to believe in myself when I feel nothing but doubt. 

I owe him so much for all that he's done for me through the past few months of hardship and he'll never once admit how strong he had to be to hold our marriage and family together.  But I will be forever grateful.

On K-Love today, I heard this song played for all that suffered marriage hardships and I prayed for ours to stay strong while I cried to this song.  Such beautiful lyrics....  and this is for my handsome husband.

I love you, baby!


I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling
But on the inside, I can hear her saying...

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone”

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They're just children from the outside
I'm working hard, I tell myself they'll be fine
They're in independent
But on the inside, I can hear them saying...

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I'm called to be
Father, show me the way
To lead them
Won't You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can't
Don't want to leave them hungry for love,
Chasing things that I could give up

I'll show them I'm willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Good luck to you and your husband on your journey to reconnect :) Sanctus Real is amazing and funny enough the lead singer lives like 10 miles from me - small world - he has a blog about his son Bowen who has had heart problems/surgeries since his birth just last fall. Have a good one :)

This song makes me cry. Without fail.

It's constantly brought up in my church that the number one thing a husband can do for his wife that will touch her heart in more ways than imaginable is to pray for her.

Sometimes I hope to overhear Mike praying for me. I hope Richie prays for you and that you one day get to overhear it. :)
