A blessed man...

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord..." Jeremiah 17:7

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about a man whose entire life has
been characterized by his trust and hope in the Lord.

He was born on August 23rd... a number of years ago... to a man and woman who loved God

in a country whose government did not look kindly on those who loved God.

He grew up in a family that appreciated life, each other, and their opportunities to worship.

He learned what true freedom meant in 1989 when he was shot for his country.

He learned what it meant to leave his family...

and friends...

and to be a true disciple of Christ when he traveled across the world to follow God's plan for his life, even though he did not know what that would mean.

He married me in 1996, knowing that he would not return to his family, but also knowing that we would form a new family. Not knowing what the future would hold, but knowing that we would approach that future together with God's guidance.

He has been a faithful husband, and someday soon, he will be an amazing father. He has so much to share with the child God has already chosen for us.

Happy Birthday, DoubleT. I love you with all of my heart, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together.

Blessed far beyond what I deserve...

***P.S. Mayb
e one day soon, DoubleT will be a guest writer on my blog and tell you a little more of his story himself... :-)
