Day 517 ~ My Husband, Mr. Integrity (XXIX)

"A prudent man forsees evil, and hides himself; the simple pass on, and are punished." (Proverbs 27:12) 
You're moving toward the home stretch of your 30-day challenge! Just a reminder of what you've committed: 
  • You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
  • Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!

As you near the end of your Encouragement Challenge, take time to think about your husband's responses to the wickedness of the culture, the media, etc. Does your husband recognize and avoid evil? Does he regularly turn his back on pornography, sexual temptations, and the urge to lie and cheat?
This is a valuable character trait. Like Joseph in the Old Testament, who fled from the wicked advances of Potiphar's wife, this takes an understanding that these kinds of sins are first and foremost, sins against God (Gen. 39:9).
Praise your husband when he recognizes and turns his back on wickedness. If you can think of a circumstance where your husband stood for righteousness, remind him of that today-and express your gratitude. 
Day 29! . . .
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  

From the first day I met my husband I have seen the type of man he is.  He has shown me early on in our relationship how honest he is.

What really sticks in my mind that he not only has found one wallet (full of money, credit cards and even an endorsed paycheck) in our time together, but he has found three!  Each and every time he literally went out of his way to return it to its rightful owner, and has denied any reward offered!

Amazing, huh?!

He isn't just about returning wallets... he has always stood up and helped the underdog and has even gone to battle for them... since he was a boy too.  If he saw someone being picked on, he stood up for them.  He even went as far as fighting the school's biggest bully not caring about his own safety.  He won everyone's respect in his school.

Sooo... I tell you... not only do I feel blessed because Dean IS MY husband and soul mate... I am also blessed that he IS a man of INTEGRITY...  Thank you Lord for not only bringing a man into my life who loves me, but one that is honest, sincere and has integrity!
I am thankful for my husband!
