My Favorite Love Song For My Favorite Guy on Our 5-year Anniversaryhttp://media.switchpod.com//users/abrahampiper/anniversarysong.mp3″
I am in love with Abraham Christian Piper. There are too many reasons to name, but here’s a feeble attempt at a few.
A—Affectionate. With his words and actions.
B—Brilliant. I’m so glad to have a husband who uses his brain so actively. He’s not content to sit on the couch and veg in front of a TV; he has to use his brain. Not that he doesn’t like a football game once in a while, but I am deeply thankful that this is not the norm for him. I couldn’t decide between this adjective or “blogging genius.”
R—Responsible. I know this might be a no-brainer, but I respect my husband for the responsibility he takes for our family every day. He is responsible before God to be the head of our family, and he handles that HUGE commitment with grace and dignity.
A—Addictive. I seriously cannot spend enough time with this guy. Whenever I think of something I want to do, there’s no one I’d rather do it with than him. Whether it’s an exotic trip or a laid-back night at home, he’s my favorite company.
H—Honest. “Honest Abe,” right? Truly there are times when I’ve been tempted to fudge something here or there, but Abraham always insists on doing things the honest way. Do I always appreciate that at the time? No, but it doesn’t take long for me to realize that he’s right.
A—Accepting. No one has seen me fail more in my life. But he has never turned me away—never. He has never made me feel like I am “too bad” for his love, which is how Jesus is. He has never told me I’ve sinned too much for me to be his child. I’m thankful that Abraham accepts me and challenges me at the same time.
M—Married. To ME!
