The Contented Papa - My Man

Today I want to showcase someone who is very special to me.
This is the Contented Papa – Peter. 

There is a lot to say about this man. First of all he is a Christian man. He loves the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength. He seeks to serve and glorify God with everything that he does. He leads our family in bible reading and prayer everyday. He thinks about how he might better lead our family. 
I am so thankful for this.

He works hard and he works smart. He takes his work seriously and he does it with vigor and zeal. He is energetic and motivated. He runs his own business and therefore has to manage his time well. He is learning this skill. It is hard to know how much time to spend with the family and how much time to spend with work. But he is growing and adjusting as he needs to and I am very proud of him!

Peter is intelligent. I remember the first time we walked through a woodland trail.
It was just down the road from the university I was attending and 
we were just getting to know each other. 
As we walked he pointed out latin scientific names of plants, ferns, and wild flowers! Perhaps only a biology major (such as myself) could find that to be not only impressive, but also very romantic! He continues to impress me with his knowledge and understanding and also with his love of learning. 
He inspires me to learn more and love to learn more.

He is not lazy. I don’t think there is a lazy bone in that man’s body! 
He jumps out of bed in the morning ready to take on the day! 
If he is not marking or tutoring he is working on some project in the house, 
running an errand or spending time with his daughter or with me.

Which leads to my next point, he is an Amazing Daddy. 
In his daughter’s eyes, he is the superhero Daddy who can do everything! 
He is fast, tall, strong, talented and funny. 
He has a big grrrowwl that makes her giggle. 
He has strong arms that throw her high into the air. 
He plays beautiful music on the recorder that makes her smile and dance. 
He is the #1 man in that girl’s life. 

And He’s also the #1 man in this girl’s life. 
I love him, honour him, respect him, and cherish him. 
He is my lover and my best friend. He is ready steady all the time. 
He doesn’t waver up and down like I often do. 
He is very consistent and stable. 
He is the kind of man that I can depend on. 

I love you!
