Lovely dovey post for the gram!
What really matters is how I love and treat my wife behind closed doors but public praise is fun too. And my wife deserves it cuz she's "the best!" (In my Nacho Libre voice)

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord" Proverbs 18:22
God has definitely poured out His favor and goodness on me through my wife. Thankful for her and thankful we're in a never leave you nor forsake you, always forgive you, marriage covenant of love just like God's covenant with His people. .

Martin Luther King Jr wasn't just a civil rights leader, he wasn't just a racial justice activist, he wasn't just a Nobel Peace Prize winner. He was a husband and a father. He said racism, poverty, and war were life's three major evils. And he was a Christian before all that. People forget he was a pastor first and it was his faith in God that motivated him to do all he did. Long live the memory and legacy of Dr. King! Let us never forget! "On the one hand we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life's roadside; but that will only be an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life's highway." -MLK

He wanted a "real bible" with red letters for Christmas. This was his favorite gift. He still thanks God for his bible when he prays, even if it's just a prayer before eating. He sneaks it in. All this gives me so much joy! .

A Family tradition of ours is to bring cookies and cards to firefighters to let them know we appreciate the sacrifices they make. Sometimes firefighters have to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day being away from their families. It's a small way for my family and I to push back against the consumerism of the season and be the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14) In this picture is Kevin, he drives the fire truck and has been a firefighter for 28 years. We visited station 6 and 7. .
