Happy Birthday Richard

Happy Birthday Richard!

I love this man. He works hard and he plays hard.

The man knows how to have fun! He is also tender-hearted and wise at the same time. He cares about the difficult things of the world and isn't afraid to stand up for what is right. He is gentle when needed and tough when it is required. He loves his family entirely unselfishly. He is not lazy. He provides not only for us physically, but emotionally and spiritually. He is a strong rock for our family and when he is away we all feel it. He is sincere:

"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Romans 12: 9-12

Counting my blessings...
