  1. My husband is strong in a lot of ways–physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He’s my rock when my emotions are crazy, and he strengthens my faith when I worry and doubt. He’s a big guy, too, and I love it when he wraps his arms tight around me. He makes me feel small (I’m 5’10”), safe, and protected, and I love that.

    This is beautiful, Natasha. 🙂

      Thank you, Jaimie. 🙂

  2. Strength of character. He is willing to make tough decisions in obedience to God, and to preserve his testimony.

    Emotional strength. He is there to calm my spastic feminine response when life becomes more than I can handle.

      I love the term “spastic feminine response”. 🙂

  3. And… I loved what you said about the tractor… Yeah… if you really want to appreciate your man, go out there and try to do what he does every day for a little while. It’s not as easy as it looks. 😉

      Isn’t that for sure! 🙂
      I couldn’t even begin to do what he does. And I’m so thankful that he willingly does it for me!

          He just opened one for me this morning! 🙂

  4. This was one of the sweetest of all! God knew what he was doing when He made the differences between men and women, huh? 😉 My hubby is well known around the area for his intimidating appearance. He’s built like a tank. (about a foot wider than me, and a foot and a half taller than me!) His hands are so calloused he has to file them down with a hand-grater. I’ll have have to mention the super glue fix to him. He has that problem, too.
    It was funny, because when I first published my book. My grandma said that I should use a pen name. She said that if someone didn’t like what I had written, they might come after me.
    I told her, “Grandma… you don’t understand… My hubby is the scariest thing in that jungle!” 😀
    Like you said Amos though, the best part is that all that is tempered with gentleness. He bends down to hug me when I need it, and he carefully pushes my siblings on their big swing outside. It reminds me of the way God cares for us. Job 38-39 talks about how amazing God is. God talks about how He makes the sun rise and set, how He stores up the rain and hail and throws it down on the earth as a storm. Then He talks about how He feeds the starving baby ravens, and how He helps the deer and mountain goats when they’re in hard labor.
    Yes… that is the mighty, sweet and compassionate God we serve.
