The Best Son-in-Law Ever!!

For any of you that know me and know my family, you may have recognized that I had one glaring omission in my "opening post". I failed to mention that, not only do I have 3 beautiful children, but I also have one AWESOME son-in-law!  That's because I wanted to devote an entire blog entry to him!  

From the time that they started dating, our family fell in love with Chad.  

On December 9, 2000, our daughter, Faith, married her best friend  and I could not have special ordered a more perfect husband for her, or son-in-law for me! There is no doubt in my mind that Chad is the one that Faith's dad and I had prayed for all those years.

Since I first met Chad, I have watched God work in his life and I have watched him mature into such a godly man who is a wonderful husband, brother, son, son-in-law, "Bubba" and a great friend to many people.  He knows God's Word and is not afraid to share it wherever he goes. 

One of the things I love most about Chad is his awesome sense of humor!  He is one of the funniest people I know!  And...the boy loves to play some games...i.e. American Idol, Guitar Hero, etc. 

He is also the best "Bubba" ever!

I am proud to call him my "son"!

I love you, Chad!

AWWW! This is so sweet! I second everything you said about him! He will be so shocked when he sees this!
I can see that you figured out how to do the pictures! You did good...but oh my word, that picture of us dating....awful!
Hope you are feeling better! Love you!

Oh that is soooo great!! What a Godly example you set by praying for your SIL before they even met. My baby is 15 (almost 16) and I was sharing with him on the way to church today how I pray for his wife ~~ well I've told him this before, and I'm happy to report he still thinks I'm a little out there :) But that is okay. I know that God hears and is preparing that sweet little thing for him right now even as I type and one day he'll be happy his mama prayed :) Thanks for this post, Dawn

I must say that might be the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me. Trust me the feelings are mutual. After all the horror stories I heard about the dreaded mother-in-law, you have laid all those to rest. You are one of my favorite people in all the world, and I love you deeply. Plus you are the reason my beautiful wife is here. So bravo! Thank you so much for all you've done for us and continue to do. I love you and appreciate you more than you will probably ever know.

That is such a sweet post! I love the relationship between a mom and her son-in law!! My mom's favorite story to tell is that, after having three daughters, she was just in SHOCK about how much boys eat!!! :) In a good way! Now she can cook all she wants in that kitchen!!!
I'm loving your blog! You definitely don't seem like a rookie!!! :)
