Sometimes I wonder if anything can keep that man down. He is such an amazing human being. He's a rock of a man and the longer I'm married to him the more I appreciate who he is. Perfect he's not. I can personally attest to that!!! He's a rather quiet kind of guy and he's definitely a micro-manager, and I laugh when I say that because he can drive me bananas; but somehow he always manages to fill or hold together the cracks and crevices, the breaks and the holes in our lives. His strength comes from a deep and abiding faith in God and upon Him he quietly relies. I am ever-so-grateful to be able to walk through this world by his side.
I'm also hoping to can up some beef too. We have been eating the fire out of canned beef here lately. It makes for great stews, soups, and sandwiches. Every morsel that goes in your mouth is tender and delicious. The nice thing about the beef is it comes ready to eat straight from the quart jar so that in a pinch you can pop the lid and dive right in. That makes me feel confident that I can feed my family, at least for a little while!!
