- She is Smart. The first night I met her, I found out that she majored in math, and that she was a math teacher. The more time I’ve spent with her, the more I realize that her intelligence is much more than mathematics and logic. She is a beautifully intelligent woman who inspires others to know truth. Primarily, she points people to the Ultimate Truth in the Scriptures. On top of that, she has a massive amount of general wisdom that she shares with everyone, most of all me
- She is Sexy. Yes, I used the word “sexy” and I am a pastor. Deal with it. My wife is sexy, and God made her that way, and I love it. I would have posted a picture of her, but even a completely discrete picture of her might cause people to stumble. She’s that sexy
- She is Stubborn. Now granted, this attribute isn’t always as easy to enjoy as the first two, but it is an awesome thing. I like that my wife isn’t moved like the wind. She is resolute in her decisions. This is an amazing thing to see when she’s parenting. It’s also a great reassurance that she is true to her word, yet is willing to listen to reason. Even when her stubbornness is tough, she is a model to me of someone who’s not easily swayed.
These are nothing new. In fact, I told Marie when we got engaged that she had the “3 S’s” that I was looking for. But today is her birthday, so instead of just keeping these 3 things to myself, I decided to share them with you. Also, I think it might have embarrassed Marie a little, which is always a plus!
