Happy Birthday and Happy Father's Day!

"Lion Heart"

I am so thankful for my amazing wonderful husband, Ruslan Kalashnikov. I feel so blessed to have such a man all my own.

He is so faithful, so loyal, so loving, and so full of integrity.
I love this man Ruslan. I have had the privilege of being married to him for 9 (10 in October) years!

He is encour
aging when I feel down.

He is my help in time of need.

Ruslan is my friend even when I am not friendly.

He loves me when I am prickly and makes me laugh when I take life too seriously.

He knows how to be child like while still embracing responsibility

His patience with me leaves the soft gentle conviction of how much I lack this thing called patience.

His grace for me s
hows me a picture of God's unconditional love for me.

He has taught me things about myself that I never could have learned if it weren't for being committed to each other thro
ugh thick and thin.

Ruslan has taught me how to let others be who they need to be without trying to "fix
" everything or everyone.

His father
heart for our children melts my heart everytime

We have grown together so much over these years I can hardly imagine how much better it could possibly get!

It never ceases to amaze me, all the goodness God has stored up for us as we serve one another in love.

I have found that true love is being dependent upon one another, not holding onto my independence.

Thank you Ruslan for being my forever love! Happy Birthday and Happy Father's Day!!!!
I love you, I love you, I love you.


  1. In Holland, we congratulate people on their loved ones birthdays. I think this birthday definately deserves a big "congratulations!"

    What an awesome gift it is to have such an amazing husband! I love how you express this.

    It's a good day to be thankful. I'm so thankful for my husband and family too. This morning, my daughter Emma woke up and told me, "I'm thinking of such wonderful things." That sums it up just wonderfully, I think.

  2. I like it. Sorry, never know what to comment on these, but I want to at least let you know I read and enjoyed. :)
