52 years ago today...

…that sweet hubby of mine was born. What an amazing gift and blessing! I’m privileged to have shared this day with him for 26 of those years (exactly half his life so far!)

One of many things I’ve learned in all that time is how much he dislikes being the center of attention for occasions such as this. He gets great joy in celebrating others, but when it comes to his special day, nothing makes him happier than a quiet, low-key celebration at home. In keeping with his wishes, I will see that he is showered (in an understated ways, of course) with much love and many blessings all throughout the day. It’s a joy and privilege that I eagerly anticipate each year. = )

To my dear husband and most cherished friend,

How I love you, Sweetheart! I thank God for the gift of your life and the immeasurable joy it brings to me. I pray your day is filled to overflowing with love and the sweetest of blessings.

Happy birthday to your DH! I assume that's him in the plaid shirt beside you in the photo in your sidebar. :~D

Happy Birthday to your hubby!

I'll continue praying for your father's and niece's recovery.

What a kind, caring, heartfelt tribute to your husband. In my opinion, you are both so fortunate to have each other. Wishing him many more happy birthdays and the two of you many more times to celebrate together.

I pray your Hubby had a wonderful Birthday and MANY many more in Jesus Name. He's a handsome man and you both make a beautiful Christ-centered couple.

Love you.

Ah...your husband is the same vintage as mine! Mine has a two month jump on yours...a little earlier model. :)

Have a great day!!
