{Marriage Mondays} Envelope Surprise

I have been Pinterest crazy as of late trying to get some inspiration for some money savvy/super cute birthday ideas for the hubs. He turns 31 on the 15th of this month and I feel like he hasn’t really celebrated his birthday the entire time we have been together.  He just flies under the radar with birthdays, well… like he does for everything.  He is such a selfless man and puts all of his time & energy into me and our son. I am soooo blessed to have a husband with such character.  He makes me want to be a better person, and I am planning some thoughtful gifts!

The project I’m working on tonight is {Envelope Surprise}…

I found it on www.thedatingdivas.com where I will write notes along with everyone close to him sharing how much he means to us all! I have already sent texts to his siblings/parents/etc and now I’m waiting for responses to print out and put in envelopes.  Tonight I prepare my envelopes!  I chose a bible verse and then wrote his connection as a husband/father.  Below are the verses I chose and some pictures of my wifely craftiness.

Wives, submit to you husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church… ~Ephesians 5:22-23

    • I connected this verse to his leadership of our household.

Husbands, love your wife and do not be harsh with her. ~Colossians 3:19

    • I connected this verse to his unfaltering patience he has with me.

My lover is mine, and I am his. ~Song of Solomon 2:16

    • I connected this verse to his love he shows me.

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” ~Hebrews 13:4

    • I connected this verse to his faithfulness

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. ~Matthew 22:27

    • I connected this verse to his dedication to be a Godly husband/father.



I hope you enjoyed reading this project as much as I did constructing it!  I cannot wait to share the finished product and how the hubs reacts!  So excited!
