February Challenge--Praising my husband!

The 3rd week of this challenge given by Courtney over at   began yesterday.  I am a little behind, as I've been focusing on 'other things'...but with Valentine's Day coming in 2 weeks, I have been giving more thought to the attention I give my husband.

I guess this is one reason I'm taking a small sabitical from major de-cluttering and organizing to make some simple Valentine's Day decorations. hubby and I celebrate our 24th Anniversary on...wait for it...Feb. 14th!  Notice that I was making some of our ONLY Valentine's Day decorations?  Sad, isn't it...and it's supposed to be our 'special' day.

I am so thankful for groups like Women Living Well, Good Morning Girls, and other blogs and sites I've found that are reminding us women to Love our Husbands, focus on them, Praise them, etc.! 

Here I am with my hubby, Joel.
We have been married 24 years on Feb. 14th.  He is 10 years older than I am, and we've known each other since I was 10 years old!!!  Joel has MS and lung cancer, but God is so good!  Up until about 3 years ago, he worked 60 hours a week!  But, he had to quit when the MS became so bad that he couldn't physically work anymore.  He loves God with all his heart and he is a great prayer warrior!

We have 2 wonderful children, Jordan and Kayli.  We were unable to conceive for 7 years and did foster care for 4 1/2 of those years.  We homeschool our children and are striving to train them to be a Godly young man and young lady.

I am joining the challenge, even though I'm late, because I believe it's never too late to begin! 

What does this have to do with Organizing bit-by-bit?  This is all in order, because God has ordered it himself...and I want to be in order with His plan!

I love you, Joel!
