Happy Birthday to My Husband

Last year at this time my husband was preparing to ask my parents for permission to marry me. This year, we are married and loving it. These last, nearly six, months of marriage have been the greatest, most joyful, most sanctifying months of my life. I am so thankful to God for the man that he has given me to spend my life with. Today is my sweet man’s 28th birthday. I thought it would be fitting to honor him by jotting down just a few of the many reasons I am grateful to God for him today, and every day.

Daniel, how much do I love you? Let me count the ways!

  1. You make me love Jesus more.

  2. You love Jesus.

  3. You make me laugh.

  4. You aren’t afraid to lovingly confront me in my sin and point me to Jesus.

  5. You are thoughtful and kind.

  6. You lead us well and love doing it.

  7. You make me think and challenge me to think more clearly.

  8. You are wise.

  9. You are so dang cute (see above picture).

  10. You love Jesus.

  11. You have helped shape and refine my love for the local church.

  12. You are a hard worker.

  13. You let me talk and don’t mind it (which is a big deal in my book, because I talk a lot. A whole lot!).

  14. You challenge me to love lost people.

  15. You love the kids that God has given you to minister to.

You are a good man, Daniel Reissig. I love being your wife and look forward to the years God gives us. Happy Birthday, babe!
