Ok so I follow lots of blogs and because I can not be on the computer all day long or all night long (although that's happened MORE times than I like to admit) I simply can't read every blog that I follow daily or even everytime they update. Hey if you have the time and feel you can actually prioritize that, well more power to you. I can't. So I normally find myself playing catch up quite often with various blogs. Tonight it was from Always Laughting Outloud. If you've not read this blog, I definitely recommend it (obviously since I follow her!). She's real, completely enjoyable, and just a great read! So I'm catching up on her and read the HUSBAND entry (click on husband). May I just say what a beautiful entry this was?! It was.

So often we read or hear women trashing men. It breaks my heart. I love my husband and sure he gets on my nerves at times, but I'm not perfect and I have no doubt I get on Chad's nerves just as often if not more! Yet he would NEVER trash me to anyone. Everytime I meet one of Chad's soldiers or superiors they almost always tell me how much he talks about me, how much he loves me, etc. It's VERY humbling. VERY. To know I have a man who loves me so much and is NOT afraid or ashamed to share that love with other guys?! Now ladies let me tell you, he's the kind of man you want! I AM Blessed!

I also get hearbroken when I hear women down grading men, because I'm raising two boys who will one day be a man. I'd be devestated to think anyone would talk so horribly about either of them. How a mother could EVER spat the phrase "oh men" or "such a typical male". Honestly what is wrong with us? WHO told us WE were any better? We're not, most of us are 100000 times worse. We are so quick to condemn, talk down to and about. It's horrible.

We need to raise up and buid up the men (and boys) in our lives. We need to honor them, love them, and cherish them.

Ok, I'll end this post on that! Go on and read the link!!!

Hello Miss Christy,

I so agree you! I try to get around to everyone blogs but, I don't have a lot of free time to follow a huge amount I only follow a few! I know what you mean I love my wife and feel very blessed with the one I have. I pick at her a lot but I would trade her in for anything! Since I have always felt God Put us together I always feel that I have a responsibilty to God also and figure He would not be happy with my trashing Her!

God Bless

I'll have to check out the link, but PLEASE know if you ever read my blogs and I tease my husband -- it is JUST that. I love my man and am grateful for him.

Have a blessed night!

I'm heading over to check out the blog now.

Have a good rest of your week, and I love your new background.

I will read her post after leaving yours.

I so agree with you about women trashing their husbands. It is such a shame! I may be guilty of many things...this has NEVER been one of them. We've been married for almost 18 years and I've never trashed my hubby to ANYONE. Unfortunatley, not many women can say that. I really enjoyed your post! Great one!

I know exactly where you are coming from. Sometimes life just takes over and we get too busy to visit all the blogs that we enjoy reading.

By the way, I love your blog and agree with what you wrote on January 20. I am praying for our new president as well. And I believe that our country could also use some prayers.

I'm glad I found your blog! I'm looking forward to reading more.
