Birthday Wishes...

My Better Half...
June 2007

My iTunes: Underneath It All by No Doubt

Today I celebrated my prince. He is the man who God has prepared for me since I was a little girl (boy, did he need it!). He is a cherished husband. He is a caring father. He is strong when I am weak. He encourages me. He makes me laugh so hard I cry. He is kind. He is mine....and I am his. He is my best friend. He is my biggest fan. He is the last one I see when I go to sleep and the first one I see as I wake up. He prays with me. He treasures me. He challenges me. He loves me well. He relaxes me. He is patient with me. He plays with me. He loves the Lord. I am so grateful that God made him just for me. He is exactly what I need. He makes me a better soul.

He has changed my world in so many ways...

Happy 36th Birthday John!

It wasn't my intention to post another portrait tonight. However, I snapped this tonight before we went out in the city with friends. I knew when I saw it, it was going to be one of my favorites of him for years to come. His exterior is very calm and laid back. I think this is portrayed here.....and he is handsome! :)

Happy Birthday John! What a beautiful way to tell him how much you love him. Look at his eyes and then scroll down to Sam's. Precious!

Happy B-Day, John!

I'm glad you two seem to have a great marriage. That's very encouraging to hear in this life.
Thanks for sharing.

...That would be a great "profile pic" for his blog.

Nice birthday post. Just in time for Father's Day, too! (In the U.S., anyway -- I don't know if they do that "across the pond.")

You left out something: And he's a Braves fan. LOL! (Do people in London ask about the cap? "What's the "A" stand for, mate?")

Happy Birthday, John!

Anna said...

Actually John, I was thinking the "A" could stand for Anna! :) hehehe. JK, he does love the Braves!

Enjoyed reading your description of John. That's exactly how I feel about my husband. Thanks for sharing. Hope his day was extra special.

Awesome shot Anna. Great post too. I'm late with this, but happy birthday to John.

That look on his face is what becomes of the "Aw, shucks, don't take my picture" look when he's resigned himself to the knowledge he will have a camera pointed at him often until death do you part.
