Today is John’s birthday and I just want to take some time to reflect on how much he means to me. WARNING: this is mushy and I don’t care if it is:
“What You May Not Know”
What you may not know about John is that I am my best when he is around,
What you may not know is that when I am at my worst, his grace abounds.
You may not know that he soothes my bitter tears,
You may not know that he wipes away my fears.
What you may not know about John is that everyday I see His unfailing love for the Lord grow,
What you may not know is that He is like a steady mast not easily tossed to and fro.
You may not know that being a daddy is His biggest pride,
You may not know that the love he has for his family runs deep and wide.
What you may not know about John is that He is the better half of me,
What you may not know is that I’m as happy as a wife can be.
You may not know John as well as I do,
but upon meeting him you would figure it out too.
That is just the way he is, never wavering, always faithful,
An example to me of Christ that I’m sure will never dull.
I know that he is all these things to me and more,
Happy Birthday My Love, My Rock, may God bless you today with grace and peace galore.
