My Son-In-Law

We met Jon four or five years ago.  Tyler, Sandy's son, brought him to our home one Christmas to stay with us a few days.  Ken and I were very impressed with him from the start.  He was strong in his faith...unwavering, which is rare to see in young men these days.  He came and lived with us for awhile when Alyssa was living in Jackson, Mississippi.  He was easy to have around.  He worked hard, was faithful going to church and being involved in some type of ministry.  He fell in love with our Alyssa.  We were so happy!  She loves being married to him. 

He loves spoiling her ~ 

She just wanted a little diamond ring...He bought her almost a karat. 

She likes her little car.  He wants her in a big safe car. 

She can make $30 an hour teaching ballet, but he likes having her home taking care of their home and him.  He doesn't care if she works at all.  I love that!  Most men want their women to work. 

He likes providing for her. 

He doesn't mind her spending the afternoon with us eating lunch out, shopping, and lounging around the pool.  He wants her happy even if he has to slave the day away. 

He loves reading the Bible to her and praying with her at least once a day.  He wants to make sure their relationship is centered on Christ. 

He loves listening to Mark Driscoll...a man's man.  He thinks he's the greatest preacher alive today.  Driscoll teaches men to be men.  He wants them to be masculine and live up to their calling. 

We are so happy Jon married our daughter.  I still get teary-eyed when I think how good God is in bringing them together.  His ways are so good.

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.  Ephesians 5:33
