What I Love About My Fiance’

What I Love About My Fiance'

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I want to wish my fiance’ a very, very, Happy Birthday!

This post is another “not-your-typical-blog-post” but I am oh so happy and blessed to be writing it. Adam and I have been engaged for over a month now (wow, that first month went fast!). The wedding plans are coming together and our countdown has begun! 🙂

I have been extremely blessed with an amazing fiance’ (and a great future family!). This post is not to brag – although he deserves every bit of praise I can give! So, since this week is Adam’s birthday, this post is for him.

However, this post is also for all the young women out there waiting and praying for their “Knight in Shining Armor”. All the things I love about my handsome fiance’ are the very things I wish every young woman could find in a future husband. Godly young men are hard to come by these days… and I don’t know why God blessed me with mine, but here’s what I love about my man (and what I hope for each one of you!).

What I Love About My Fiance’

He Is a Godly Leader

My pastor’s wife once told me “Make sure you marry someone who can lead you spiritually.” At the time, her statement worried me…

Until I met Adam.

He is an amazing leader. He’s wise, decisive, and knows how to take a stand.  I feel so incredibly safe and confident allowing him to lead – spiritually and otherwise. I trust him to continue leading me, and I trust him to lead our someday home and our future family (if God blesses us with children).

Girls, please never underestimate the importance of finding a young man who can lead. Your responsibility will be to submit and help him. If he is not a good leader, your job will be made a whole lot more difficult.God created men to be the leaders… make sure you find a  good one. 🙂

He Consistently Walks With God

I admire my man’s dedication when it comes to daily devotions and time with God.  Throughout college, and even now with his crazy schedule, he consistently carves out the proper amount of time to meet with God each morning.

I would really struggle to get up at the time he does each morning…. and yet he does it so faithfully. His time with God is extremely important to him, and that means so much to me!

He Is Trustworthy

I can trust Adam when it comes to…. everything.

I trust him with my feelings, because he knows they are real, and sometimes fragile. He doesn’t take them lightly but rather takes them into his consideration.

I trust Adam with my thoughts and opinions, because he values them.

I trust Adam with my heart because he doesn’t take it for granted. He is incredibly loyal to me and that makes my heart oh so happy and safe.

He Loves His Family

The summer I met Adam, this is one of the things I noticed very early. He talks a lot about his family, he loves his little sister, and he makes time for all of them.

One Sunday he needed a place to go for lunch so our family had him over for our traditional “Sunday Spaghetti”. After lunch we were all chatting around the dinner table and he started talking about his little sister.  Something about the tone of his voice, and the way he talked about her, made my heart melt a little bit.

Looking back, I remember that conversation so clearly. Why? Because when he talked about his family, and his sister, there was love in his voice.

Fast forward to now… and I KNOW he is going to be an amazing husband and father someday. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that he loves me and he is going to love his own family someday.

He Doesn’t Have a Short Fuse (a.k.a. a Temper)

It’s always been important to me that my future husband NOT be “given to anger”. It’s one thing to see a man who is angry as a result of “righteous anger”. However, foolishly getting angry over silly matters, or at other people is something I would prefer not to live with. If someone yells at me or gets angry with me, I shut down inside. So, I’m very thankful Adam doesn’t have a temper!

He is a Reader

Every leader is a reader, and my man lives this out. I don’t know how he manages to read as much as he does… but I am so thankful he loves learning! His desire to read tells me he has a desire to grow.

Reading is very near and dear to my heart so I’m absolutely thrilled to have a fiance’ who loves to read. 🙂 I love talking about the books we read, I love having our weekly book study, and I love it when we read together. 

He is Always Cheering Me On

Adam is always cheering me on. It is so amazing to have someone who believes in me and is constantly encouraging me in my creative pursuits…. especially this blog.

He’s my number one supporter and encourages me like no one else.

He Is Always Positive

Seriously. He’s always looking on the bright side. I didn’t realize I was such a negative person until I discovered his super positive way of thinking. He is so good for me. Whenever something gets me down he always gives me hope.

He Takes Super Good Care of Me

He knows I get stressed out. He knows I need my sleep. He knows I don’t drink enough water… and he does his best to help me with all three. But that’s just the beginning.

The other week when I had my wisdom teeth removed, he knew I was dreading the whole ordeal (side note: it wasn’t bad at all!). The morning of my “surgery” he texted me over a dozen times, called me, and prayed with me… just to make me feel better. Afterwards, he checked up on me, brought me chocolate, and even made me an amazing peach smoothie. And since we couldn’t have a normal date night he brought over a movie so I wouldn’t have to talk much. I felt so loved. ♥

He does so many other things to take good care of me… like asking me questions so he knows what I want, what I think, how I feel, etc.

I am one spoiled girl. 🙂

He Is Romantic

Hidden letters, surprise lunch dates, little gifts,  big gifts, chocolate, and more… I’m not trying to make anyone jealous… I am just extremely blessed and he deserves to be publicly thanked for everything! 🙂

He’s Not Perfect, But He’s Perfect for Me

I know I make him sound perfect (and personally, I think he’s very close!). But… we are both sinners, neither of us are perfect and we goof. But this one thing I know: he just right for me. 🙂

A Birthday Wish

Adam, I wish you the happiest of birthdays. You deserve to have a day as wonderful and amazing as you. You make me smile so much my face hurts. You brighten my bad days and sweeten my good ones. You’re an amazing leader and I am so proud to follow you. Please don’t ever forget how much I respect and admire you. Happy Birthday, Adam… I love you!! ♥
