  1. Good husbands learn women and wife (I Peter 3:7). This also reminds me of the Clever character trait. Your dad is very clever at finding ways to love and know me better! Also, part of graciousness is being curious and asking others about themselves. But best of all is the curiosity of searching out the hidden treasures in God's word!

  2. Yes dad is very clever! I am very thankful to have a father with great character to learn from and be instructed by! Thank you Lord for such a choice in my life! And Amen mom! God has given us so much to know Him better by! All we have to do is seek Him and He has promised that we will find Him if we search with all our heart!
