My greatest Hero…is actually two

This was technically from 2.2.11, the posting topic was “Who is your greatest hero”.

In reality I have 2. My first is my first love: Jesus. Not to be cliché about it, but seriously…He saved me from a demise that I couldn’t avoid. I could go on for hours if not days regarding the grace & love that He has shown me and the change that took place in me & continues to take place today… I truly was pulled from ashes and given a new life & new chance…I wake every morning & each day I thank God for the good in my life & for all He is doing in me (even through the bad).

My second hero is my Husband. He is a gift from God. I can’t help but get a little emotional each time I look at him. He is a dream come true to me, I never knew what it meant to be truly loved until I was loved by him. God had really done a work in my heart during the years before I met my husband…God restored my joy & self-worth and really showed me that I had value and I was loveable…and then he brought Justin to me. I feel loved, and cherished (by him) in ways I never thought I deserved to be. He is kind and gentle, strong and loving. He’s a wonderful provider for our family, an amazing role model to our son, and is humble enough to know that his strength comes from the Lord. He is a defender of his home & his country. He’s a soldier and he’s my best friend. He loves Jesus and he loves us. He (by the grace & kindness of the Lord) rescued my son & I from a terrible situation and I praise God to this day for the grace & mercy that pulled us out of that pit. (If you are close to me…then you know exactly what (whom) I am referring to.)

So, my greatest heroes are my Savior and my Husband. For without them, I don’t know who or where I would be…and I never want to imagine it…for they complete me.
