My husband

I have been recently praying to God that he bring me a husband.  What single woman isn’t right? Lol. I have made a list in my head of what I want and I hope God will bring him to me.  What I have learned however is that God has the perfect man already picked out, I just need to be patient for him.  Patience is one of the fruits of the spirit that I am working very hard on.  I can’t make him come any faster than when we are both ready to meet (or have I already met him????).  God’s idea of a perfect man for me may not be my idea of a perfect man for me. 

I think that this list I am going to share with you is good, but I haven’t found him yet so God might have another list in mind.  I heard that when people make plans, God laughs. I believe that God is laughing at my list right now, but I am still going to share it so when I do find a husband we can all laugh with God at the comparison. Ok? I am very picky so this list is long.

My list-in no particular order expect the first 3:

-Christian man
-Great with children-and wants them!
-Has great arm muscles and wears baseball hats (yummy!)
-Ethical man
-A man who isn’t afraid to stand up for what is right
-Has a wonderful smile
-Someone who I love their eyes (green eyes are beautiful-did you know that I have one blue eye and one eye that has a speck of green-I think it’s a sign that my husband will have green eyes, lol)
-A man who is well liked and respected
-A hard working man
-A man with a great work ethic, who doesn’t stop until the work is done
-Great with money-since I am working on it he needs to be great with money so he can keep me in line when I try and buy to many shoes.  Love me some shoes.
-A man who loves animals-Jabba can be a handful sometimes
-A man who loves me-I can be a handful sometimes
-Back to the first one-I want a Christian man who goes to church and not just uses ‘Christian’ as a name to describe himself.  Walk the walk buddy.
-A laid back guy-who would rather hang out than go out every night
-Not a big partier or drinker-I’m over that!
-A leader
-A Jello guy-I am more Jello than crème-brulee, more cheese sticks and cheddar peppers than crepes and shrimp cocktail
-A business guy during the day and a flip flops and shorts at night (Do I have a secret obsession with Superman maybe?)
-A man who is ok with no sex until marriage
-A guy who is ok with me being a talker, and doesn’t think it’s obnoxious!
-A guy who would rather talk with me than text me
-A guy who does his own thing, and doesn’t need me 24 hours a day-have a hobby!
-A guy who can stand my temper and help calm me down-I’m working on it, but it’s a slower process
-A faithful man-no cheaters please
-A guy who will stand beside me, not in front of me
-A guy who says ‘we’ instead of ‘I’.  Don’t take all the credit for yourself
-A guy who leads me and our family
-A man who likes to talk it out rather than walk away
-A guy who likes to travel-ROADTRIPS to tropical places are great!
-A guy who likes the outdoors-there are so many things I have always wanted to go do, but I don’t have anyone to go with like hunting, 4 wheeling, paintballing, hiking, etc.
-A man who only wants to be married once and believes that marriage is forever
-A man who is not PERFECT, but is PERFECT for me.  We can work it out.

  1. Great list! Have you read or heard of the book "Lady in Waiting" by Jackie Kendall and Debbie Jones? It's an awesome book and I know it gave me a lot of peace at different times in my life when I was single. I think you'd really enjoy it. I liked to an exerpt from the book I included in my own journal that I particularly liked. Let me know what you think! It's a good list too. :)
