I have the most romantic husband. Daily he gets up early either to drive to the fire station or work on our house project. Maybe he will spend the day fixing a broken dryer, repairing van brakes or truck transfer case, or paying the bills.
Precious husband disciplines and directs our children. He hold them accountable for their attitudes and actions. He models a life of Godly character, honesty, and integrity. He chooses to be their father even when it means he may not seem to be their friend.
Precious husband treats our girls like the darlings they are. He takes them to dinner, a movie, or even the occasional shopping trip. He gives them the confidence to look for a man who will treat the well, honoring them as women.
Precious husband calls our sons to be men. Teaching them to care for the women in this house, offering their strength where we are weak. Under his watch they learn to tune up a car, build a deck, install a toilet, remodel or even build a house.
Precious husband teaches them all to wash dishes or mow the yard. He encourages that when they see something that needs to be done, do it.
After almost 28 years of marriage (our 28th anniversary is April 7) he still takes me on dates. He brings me a bouquet of flowers or most often chocolate (wise man). This romantic man takes me out for dinner, on moonlight strolls, even takes all our children so I can have a few hours of quiet and rest. He looks beyond my faults and loves me. He holds me close through the watches of the night and my head sleeps soundly on his chest.
Precious husband doesn’t “do” Valentines Day on February 14. He lives his love every day of the year. That is the most romantic gift he could give any of us.
