Giving Honor Where Honor is Due

It seems I'm always blogging about the great things my kids are doing, but I don't say too much about my incredible husband! May I brag on him for awhile?

First of all, he is a loving husband and father and a faithful, responsible, loyal, trustworthy sort of guy. He is also compassionate and caring and a man of integrity. He doesn't talk a lot, but when he does, it is usually with great wisdom. He recently helped one of our sons through a difficult spot, and our son told me later, "I'm so lucky to have a father like Dad, because he has so much wisdom and knows how to handle a variety of situations wisely."

"The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him." -- Proverbs 20:7

Alan is also a very humble man, and he would never toot his own horn. That's why he needs me to do it for him!~ :)

Alan was recently selected to be Secretary/Treasurer of the Georgia City County Management Association. This means he is in line to become the President of the GCCMA in two years!

I am so proud of him for this accomplishment!

What does my hubby think about this?? Well, according to the article in Saturday's newspaper, "The organization has a nominating committee made up of past presidents, and I had no idea they were considering me for the position . . . It's a tremendous honor to be nominated and elected by my peers."

One of the members of the nominating committe was quoted as saying, "Alan's been in local government I guess pretty much all his working life. He's done a real good job in Lee County and the nominating committee felt he would be a good person to represent our organization."

Alan concludes by saying, " The number one benefit of being a part of this organization is that its membership consists of committed managers who truly want to make a difference. These people want to have a positive impact on the lives of others." And that quote demonstrates his heart to serve others!

"And of some have compassion, making a difference." -- Jude vs. 22
