Da Man, Big Daddy, Hubzie, Dad....

That (and a silly name that only I call him)
is whats he's known by. My "wordfull Wednesday" post is about this man. Isn't he cute? He met and married myself and my three girls, never having been one to date someone that had children. Since then, we have added another youngin to our posse ~and he hearts them all the same... He is the dad that I needed (prayed for) as a little girl. One that prays with them, kisses their boo boo's, tells them they are precious. Stops what he's doing when they need to talk. Still wrastles ( its a word, we in the south ya'll) even tho the older 3 are teens . He has taught me how to love. Love so madly and deeply that I have been able to let go , trust in him, & be healed of such deep wounds that even I wasn't fully aware of~ (except for the fact that I couldn't fully trust, or love). He saw me as broken, but worthy of love. Desperatly clinging to this " I dont need anyone" mentality because the little girl inside of me had been hurt so many times. Dont tell me that God isnt real. That He doesnt know us (me) intimately. Doesnt search our hearts. Plan our lives. Give us Hope and a Future. I cant even put into words the lengths I went to to try & confirm my fears (& the lies satan told me) in our relationship to be true. I call it "the other shoe's gonna drop mentality". And Hubzie? He just stuck... He was so patient with me. He's been stickingnow for 10 years . Not only has God used him to help to heal all of my brokeness, but He has also used him to restore what the locus tried to steal in my girls lives. I. Am. Loved. Blessed. Thankful... I am Whole...

I'm so, so happy you have such a good man in your life, one who cherishes you and supports you as you heal, grow and flourish. A man like that came into my life last year, loved me in my fear (blind terror, more like), love me in utter darkness and confusion, loved me as I healed and continue to heal from a life of abuse. I am in awe of such love. I'm so glad we have such dear men. :-)

Hi, Leah~

Thank you for stopping by
Four Sisters Of Faith for a visit. It's so nice to meet you!

Reading your post brought me to tears. How wonderful it is to find a husband such as yours, one who loves you unconditionally, and who has "stuck" by you. You are truly blessed! :> )

As I was looking at your pictures, I couldn't help but think I knew your husband from somewhere. Then it dawned on me...he looks like Michael Keaton, one of my FAVORITE actors. He WAS BATMAN! lol

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post!

Blessings~
