TT U Gotta See This

FIRST let me say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful Husband!!!
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name”
Psalm 100:4
I have always known that I married an amazing man, You could call him Mr. Fix It, You can say he is a Jack of all trades. But I have always told him that he is the Love of My Life. I am truly THANKFUL that I have him in my life.
As you can see we have a mess with the lawn mower, Just before Christmas I mowed, Yep I do most of the lawn work, it is great exercise. But when I got done Brad had came out and I had mentioned to him that it sounds like I keep running over metal, well looking at the lawn mower noooooo wonder, hunks of the body was going through the blade. NOT good!! as you can see it just rotted away. I loved this lawn mower it is a self propelled and it helps me cut the lawn, we had a old push mower in the shed so my talented husband got busy after I went back to work and when I came home, waaaaalaaaaa a new mower. He transferred everything from the good mower to the old mower. I now have
this!! It may not be the prettiest(but I don't think it looks to bad)mower but it's propelled. We looked at mowers in the stores and to have a good one they are 400.00 to 600.00 dollars. I Love those big tires in the back, gives it style. Nobody else on our block has one like this. hahahaNow this next picture this is our front porch, a friend of ours had pulled this wood flooring out of another hose that they were remodeling, it kinda looked like the house may had been on fire. So anyways we brought the wood home and Mr. Brad got to work sanding and polyurethane them. He has installed some he's 1/2 way there. Today he is going to finish, it is absolutely beautiful. We are going to install a ceiling fan, buy a couple of rocking chairs for the porch, it's beautiful don't you think?
This is my hubby :) as you can see he was not ready to pose for the camera, he was sitting taking a break. A break well earned. He loves when he can do things like this for me, he said, "look honey you have a new mower". :) Maybe he will try out the mower when summer comes, hahaha! He's on vacation this week, so he is getting a few house things done, Gotta Love um! I Just got a phone call from him as I was writing this, he was so excited, his boss just called him to say he made driver of the year!! See this is another reason why I am so Thankful!
Blessed, Blessed, Blessed, Look at this car, this is the rental car they gave me while they repair my truckie.
I am so Thankful, thankful for so many things, that has happened in my life and today. Lord, I ask for You to fill Brad & I with the knowledge of Your will through all spiritual wisdom & understanding. I pray that we will live a life worthy of You Lord & please You in every way, bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of You O Lord, being strengthened with all power according to Your glorious might so that we may have great endurance & patience and joyfully giving thanks to You Lord who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
God, I come boldly before Your throne of Grace in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, lifting up my husband. I thank You Father, for blessing me with a husband that is faithful and true. A man that loves You, God, and Your wonderful Son, Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He loves you with all of his strength, and all of his mind. He allows nothing to come between his relationship with You, or his family, or separate his love from You or his family. I cover my husband with the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and surround him with your protecting angels. Your Words are my Prayers to You on his behalf. Please honor them by keeping my husband in the center of YOUR WILL in all that he does. Thank you for all that You do for him, and especially for honoring this my Prayer. After reading Philippians 1:6, "I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in my husband will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." So knowing that my husband loves you with all his heart, and desires to do Your will first and above all other things, I know that You are in complete control and that Your Will will be done for my husband. Lord , I also pray that You bless the work of my husband's hands. May His labor bring not only favor, success, and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well. Give him faith, strength and a vision for the future so he can rise above any problems he may encounter. His hope is in You Lord. Renew his strength. Help him to soar like eagles, help him to run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31). Help him to excel, but free him from the pressure to do so. I pray that you will be Lord over his work, and may he bring You into every aspect of it. Give him enough confidence in the gifts you have placed in him to be able to seek, find and do good work. Open up doors of opportunity for him that no man can close. Develop his skills so that they grow more valuable with each passing day. Show me what I can do to encourage him. According to Romans 8:28-30, "We know that in all things God works for good to those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God fore-knew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, that He might be the first born among many Brothers, and those He predestined, he also called; those He called, He also justified, those He justified, He also glorified."
God I pray that You be glorified through my husband as he witnesses to other people; that they may see Your glorious light in him, and that Your kingdom may be here on earth among Your believers. You called my husband for a purpose, and to bring others to know Christ Jesus who died so that we can receive Your love too. We know that the time for Christ's return is So very very soon, and there is So many souls to save before that glorious day comes. I come to You God requesting that You allow my husband to do more for You. You have blessed him with knowledge and insight that will help further Your kingdom on Earth and reach out to Christian believers as well as non-believers. "I pray that this is the confidence that my husband had in You, Jesus, that if he asks anything according to Your will, You hear him, whatever he asks, he knows that he has the petitions that he asked of You." (John 5: 14-15)
I pray that if my husband faces any obstacles he always remembers that God has said that it is "Not by might nor by power, but by My spirit" (Zech 4:6).
I pray that the wonderful Holy Spirit will lead my husband, and that he will feel His presence. Place the full armor of God on my husband, that he may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. I pray he will put on the breastplate of righteousness; gird his waist with truth, and will shoe his feet with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, and above all, take the shield of Faith with which he will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. I pray that he will take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, Praying always with all prayers in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the Saints.
(Eph 6: 13-18). God, I love my Husband with all my heart, all my mind, and all my soul, I apply the blood of Jesus Christ from the top of his head to the end of his toes, that your angels will watch over him daily.
OOOOOO I pray this in your name, Jesus Christ, Amen!!!

I stand in agreement with your prayer. You indeed have much to be grateful for as we all do. Thank you for sharing this wonderful message of love and appreciation.

Bless you sweetie.

Sharon Brumfield said...

Amen girl!
How blessed we are to have the men we have. I have a Mr Fix it too. :)
I think your lawn mower is fantastic!
How cool that he was able to do that for you.
And I love the ceiling on the porch. I wish we had been able to pull the wooden floors out of our old home that we tore down. It had virgin pine floors that I had redone.
You porch will look great when it gets finished.

sailorcross said...

Thanks for stopping by, Sharon!!

I see that you've been stopping by, and I've been so busy with trying to move that I haven't been able to reciprocate properly.

I don't have a hubby who is a Mr. Fix-It, but I have a son and his wonderful friend who can fix just about everything!!

Love your lawn mover and your porch!!

Be Blessed
In His Love,
