It’s Not Just Another Day!

Nope, it’s not just another day, in MY life….it’s Debi’s birthday, the love of my life for 40 years!!! So before I get started….HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEB!!!

On March 8, 1959 a beautiful baby girl lit up this world and her name was Deborah McIntire (middle name left out for MY own safety)! Maybe the world and people around her didn’t realize who she was, but God knew because He is omniscient! He knew in eighteen years she would impact MY life forever! Not because He pre-ordained it but because He knows what our choices in life will be and He gives us the freedom to make those choices! Thankfully, at that time in my life I was willing to let Him guide me AND my decisions.

As one author, Veronica Wells, wrote:

“God knows we need people to support us in certain capacities. So it’s not hard for me to imagine that God puts people in our lives at certain times for certain reasons, including spouses. But ultimately there’s free will. We get to choose who stays and who goes and at what time”

For those that don’t know “our story”, we met at our church sponsored “Camp Meeting”, at which time I had been dating the same girl for four years. She was a great young lady but God knew the direction our lives were headed and that direction didn’t include each other! Then, thanks to a special friend…..in walks the light on my of my world, the joy of my life, the future mother of my son, the strength in my weakness and my best friend for life, Debi! That little baby girl that was born eighteen years earlier was now standing in front of me and little did I know in 4 months we would be married. I had to lean on God  during this time in my life and ultimately it was MY decision, but my faith in Him was instrumental  in my decision making process!

For the past 40 years of our marriage she has been my “Jesus with skin”! God has always given her the right words, the right actions, the right attitude and the patience to help guide me through our life together yet she has given me the respect as the leader of our household to make decisions without “beating me up” if they were the wrong decisions. I’ve said it many times, she is the epitome of the “perfect wife”!

I could write on for pages about her and the blessings she has been to my life. The most important blessing…she gave me a tremendous son, Brandon, that is the “Crown Jewel” of my life! He will never be able to fathom what he means to me….and of course the joy he brought into my life with my daughter (in-law) Chastity…together they have given me/us Zion, Eden and Canaan! I’m a very blessed man!

Every positive moment I have listed above and those I have not, every tear she has wiped from my eyes, every prayer she has prayed for me and every tear she shed for me when I was on death’s bed was made possible because a beautiful little girl was born on this day, 59 years ago, in Shawnee Oklahoma!

Her birth didn’t impact “the world” but it impacted “my world”! So today, I celebrate YOUR birthday Debi Kizer, because YOU have changed my life and as I sung to you 40 years ago, you STILL “Light Up My Life”!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY

You’re “Prince Charming”
(her words not mine)
