Happy Birthday Hubby

So my title isn't very creative, but what I think is funny is how when I post to this blog it shows up as if Joel wrote it.  So it looks like Joel is bragging on himself.  I want to use our blog to brag on him since tomorrow is his birthday.  When I went to college I swore I was there only to get my degree.  I had no intentions of getting married.  Boy, did God have different plans for me.  I met and fell head over heels in love with my hubby, even though at the time I swore I would never marry him.  Fast forward to today.  On the eve of his birthday I have been thinking about all the things I am grateful for concerning him.
   He is an amazing example of a Godly husband and Father to me and our kiddos.
   He is a very selfless guy.  He often asks me how he can help me or what he can do around the house that would be most helpful.
   He works incredibly hard to provide for us.
   He has so much compassion for all off us.
   These are just a few of the many things I am thankful for.  One of my favorite things about Joel is how if you are struggling with anything he shows mercy to them more than I could have ever imagined and that mercy spills over in to patience and love.  What a big blessing God gave to me when we met 10 years ago.  I have learned so much about God in the 8 years we have been married.  I always use to say hey I have a twin I am used to living with someone all the time.  I was so wrong being married is much different than having a twin sister.  Happy birthday Hubby!
