It's a delightful thing to hear husbands and wives speak well of each other, so I can't resist posting an excerpt from an email my sister (Anna) recently sent me. (I got her permission first.) She and my brother-in-law (Brian) will celebrate their third anniversary this year. Here's what she thinks of him (and everyone who knows him agrees):
He is a really amazing man - I have a lot of respect for him. The more I get to know him, the more things I see to admire. He's a very considerate person at home - he didn't become less nice or less attentive after the wedding day. He's always willing to give me a foot massage or spoil me if I've had a long week or a bad day. He works hard and is willing to take complete responsibility for our financial situation. He loves God and has good judgement and wisdom and wants to do the right thing. He's also a very humble person - he has this great balance where he's not fearful or insecure and he has good confidence, but he's also not prideful or egotistical. He is always quick to give God the credit even for his own strengths and accomplishments or to admit his shortcomings and apologize when he sees he's been wrong. Yet I also I love that he is a very unwavering person in so many ways. Very steady and consistent. It's a great security for me. He makes me feel safe because he's so solid, he always goes to God about everything.
