Happy Birthday......

....to my precious hubby!!!

I feel like I've known this man my entire life....
.....well, come to think of it.....
I have known him 43 of my 55 years!!!  
 






Pappy and one of his baby brothers!!!





We went all thru high school together.....but didn't start dating until after we graduated.  We even "broke up" for a period of time.  He quit calling and I figured he just wasn't interested any longer....when it was because he had lost his job and since he couldn't afford to take me on a "date"....
....he just quit coming around!!!  
How silly, right?!?!?  
  


  
These pictures still makes my heart flutter...;)  A lot of smooching took place in that Nova!!!.....and smooching only, just in case any body's wondering!!!
(especially you, Jess)
;)
  We dated for about 2 years and got married 
on April 22, 1977.
We both look scared to death, don't we?!?!?
God blessed us with a precious baby girl 
on September 29, 1979.
 And her Daddy "gave her away" 
on December 14, 2001


 And....since that time....she made him a Pappy....and me a Nannie....to two amazingly wonderful GRAND-sons.....

Today is his birthday....and he's much more handsome today than that 21 year old I married....almost 34 years ago!!!

Happy, happy birthday, my precious husband....one of my greatest blessings!!!

He is my protector.....

I Corinthians 11:3 (NLT)
But there is one thing I want you to know: 
The head of every man is Christ,
the head of woman is man, 
and the head of Christ is God.

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
