Thankful for my husband

My facebook status yesterday said:

"My husband is my hero. I am blessed beyond measure to be married to him, and I am so thankful that my boys have a man of such character to call their daddy. Just had to say that."
A little sappy? Maybe. True, though.
We've just come through a tough season. Rich worked dilligently on the Huffman campaign. He spent every spare moment, and some not so spare moments working toward the goal of getting Huffman elected. He has sacrificed time with his family, sleep, and leisure time working toward gaining our country back. I believe in this cause too, and because of that, I was willing to do whatever it took to sacrifice on my end, so that he was free to help where he was needed.
Tuesday was an enormously difficult day for us. Dan Huffman did not get elected. He was close. The top 3 candidates were within 800 votes of each other. He ran an upright and God-honoring campaign. We can't say that about all the candidates involved. When Danny spoke to us as the election results came in . . . he said, "God told me that I needed to run, but He didn't tell me that I would win."
So, Danny was faithful to do what God was leading him to do. Rich did what God was leading him to do by helping Danny. I have to tell you, though. It's hard to suffer a loss like this when you have put your heart and soul into something you believe to be the right thing.
Would I rather be married to a man who will say anything to get a vote, whether it is the truth or not? Or, would I rather be married to a man who will tell the truth no matter what the cost?
Integrity. It's worth more than a billion votes. I am thankful for what my husband has been doing the past few months.
I am thankful that our children have a father with integrity.
While many disappointments come our way, and many uncertainties follow, we are certain of a few things.
We will keep serving the Lord.
We will continue to be faithful to Him.
We will keep loving Him.
We will do our best to teach our children to do the same thing.


  1. Beautiful beautiful post! Your honest words are transparent in the way your sweet family lives! What a great role model the two of you have been through the election journey! Such a reminder that even through defeat our God is faithful and His plan bigger than we could fathom.

    And not sappy at should be proud of your husband and encourage him through your words! For that is something else your children see and grow from!

    Thanks to the both of you for all of your hard work through this election and for supporting a man of integrity to see this country changed!

  2. I am very, very proud of both of you.

  3. Amen! Loved what Pam said and couldn't agree more!
