Sure and Steady

Steady. My guy is steady. At nineteen years old I wise enough to understand that steady was good for me. I admired the twinkle in his eyes and the smile on his lips, but his heart is what really captured me. He is who he is, he does what he says, he loves who he loves. Sincere, dependable, honest, compassionate, gracious..... STEADY.

He is my perfect match. He completes me. Together, we've been blessed with five beautiful children. I may have carried each of them within me...But my man, he carries all of us, everyday, everywhere he goes. He's the hardest working person I know, and he does it all for us. I could not ask for more.

A frazzled wife, rowdy kids, and disobedient dogs greet him (in one way or another) each afternoon as he arrives home from work. Are we really enough reward for all of his labor? I can tell by the twinkle in his eyes and the smile on those lips that we are.

Happy Father's Day, Wayne Autry Lowe, Jr.! I adore you. I love you. I thank God for you.

He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
