Re: My Valentine

My wife has asked me to post on her site… A task that is not exactly in my wheelhouse if you will… But I love my wife.

I will try to give you a peek through my eyes at the most beautiful woman God has ever knit together… Aside from her obvious physical beauty, my Baby Doll has many qualities that make her one-of-a-kind.

I have never met another human that can feel along with another the way that my Tiffany can… She has this unique way of absorbing people’s emotions… a glint in their eye, a sink of their chest, a slumped shoulder… Whatever it is, you cannot hide it from her… Some of the most effective ministry I have had in people’s life is a direct result of Tiffany telling me just how someone feels. I know that when God was crafting her together He peeked into the future and saw a callous, self-righteous, stubborn boy that needed to be gently broken—and so he gifted my Baby Doll with fierce compassion for others. (As a result, one of Tiffany favorite past times is showing me a story or video on the internet and seeing if I cry.)

During my time at camp, I had to become somewhat of an expert at classifying personalities. Often time we would use a method that likens people to animals. By those standards, Tiffany is a golden retriever… “Doesn’t matter how many times you kick ‘em, they keep coming back.” My wife is a very loyal friend. Over and over, Tiffany has said that she does not need many friends (very different from her “social butterfly” husband), but those who are privileged to become her friend find a loyal companion. I am so thankful to have her standing by me side.

My Baby—turned mommy, is tops in her field. A long time ago, we prioritized her being stay at home mom… a decision that will never be regretted. Cadi and Scotty will never know what it is like to be low on the totem pole of priority. Tiffany builds into our children’s lives with passion, diligence, and grace. It is incredible to see her in action with our kiddos. Our family is so blessed to have a mommy like Tiffany.

Tiffany is a diligent planner… she plans her work and works her plan. As a result, she is an excellent teacher, an amazing cook, and a phenomenal resource to her helpless fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants husband. Before we had Cadi, Tiffany probably read 20 books on just how things would go—Me… Zero. And before Scotty, Tiffany-20+, Me-0.

Look I could go on and on here… but let me leave it at this… Years ago my heart was captivated by a gorgeous, loving, godly girl… and today I am enraptured by a woman that is exponentially more gorgeous, loving, and godly… Thank You, God for stooping down to me and affording me with my Baby Doll.

I have said it before and I will say it again and two are a huge blessing to me. You are a great example to me. Your love for each other is priceless and I only hope that I can love Roger the way that you two love each other. I know that that love is modeled after Christ!

And Tiffany, I am thankful that we are able to call each other friends. Jim is right, I am so lucky to have my life touched by you.
