Happy, happy birthday, Pap!!!

Today is Pap's birthday.
So...I want to list just a few things that I love about him.

1. I love that he is such a good Christian man. I love how he always goes out of his way to help others, especially those he works with....but mostly I love how He loves the Lord....and how he loves me!!!

2. I love what a wonderful Daddy he is. He worked shift work a lot while Jess was growing up, so he picked her up from kindergarten. He taught her to write her name, taught her colors, and numbers....and I still remember them eating what I call "rot gut" chili together, and how she would make a little football stadium with hers to impress her Daddy. He adores Jess!!

3. I love how he knows the Bible. I kid him a lot and tell him how he's my "Bible"....I get lazy sometimes and rather than look up something for myself, I depend on him. He loves Bible trivia, and can't wait for Pastor Dallas to give us a question on Wednesday nights!!!

4. I love the memories that we've made together. I love thinking back to when we were dating and he would come down to the house with his overalls on. To this day....my heart goes pitter patter when he wears his overalls!! I love how we still go on breakfast dates....which consist of going thru the drive-thru at Mickey D's and getting breakfast and parking at Smokies Stadium and eating our breakfast, talking and reading the paper!!!

5. I love how he loves our grandsons. You couldn't ask for a better Pap...or, sometimes Big brother says Pappy!! He loves those boys with all his heart and already prays for their salvation.

I could go on and on....but I just want him to know how very much I love him and how truly blessed I am to be his wife!!!

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