Favorites Friday

Today is The Boss's 39th birthday, so I'm dedicating this edition of Favorites Friday to my wonderful husband!

My Favorite Things About The Boss:
  • He's not really bossy. He's a servant, and leads our home by his example of service to us, to our church family, to our extended family and to his co-workers.
  • He's very funny. He has a wide repertoire of silly voices, wise-cracks, and imitations of the world around him that keep us all laughing. Even when we've seen him do it a hundred times before!
  • He's a great dad to our 4 kids. With the boys, he's wise and discerning, strong and loving, and rough and tumble all in one great package. And with LadyBug, he's gentle but firm, cuddly and sweet, and her Prince Charming - without the worldly facade of charm.
  • He's my best friend. There is no one else I'd rather be with, through hard times or happy times. I love just hanging out with him, working on our home with him; and he's the one I love to escape with when it's time to "get away."
  • He works hard at being more like Jesus. And takes his faith seriously - at home and at work. His desire to be found faithful in all things is a great example to me and the kids and to his staff at CHOP. It makes him a great husband, a great dad, and a great boss.
Colossians 1: 9-12 (from The Message)
"Be assured that from the first day we heard of you,
we haven't stopped praying for you,
asking God to give you wise minds
and spirits attuned to His will,
and so acquire a thorough understanding
of the ways in which God works.
We pray that you'll live well for the Master,
making Him proud of you
as you work hard
in his orchard.
As you learn more and more how God works,
you will learn how to do your work.
We pray that you'll have the strength

to stick it out over the long haul -
not the grim strength of gritting your teeth
but the glory-strength God gives.
It is strength that endures the unendurable
and spills over into joy, thanking the Father
who makes us strong enough
to take part
in everything bright and beautiful
that he has for us."

Happy Birthday, Hun!
