Honoring the Honorable: Part II
Yesterday I began a blog series inspired by the current message series at Access entitled “Honor.” I said that I’m taking this week to highlight various people who are worthy of honor in my life. Yesterday it was my amazing parents, and today, it’s the love of my life.
Jason Burns is not only my husband, but my best friend. We have been married almost 10 years, but there is still no one I’d rather spend a day or night off with. We have fun together and we laugh together. He has been one of the most tangible expressions of God’s love in my life. This is a man whose wife was diagnosed with cancer a mere six months after saying “I do,” and yet, instead of running or turning cold, he stepped up big time. He held my hand as we went to doctor appointments, slept on a hospital floor the nights I was getting chemotherapy treatments, and helped me shave my head when my hair started to fall out.
While I was sick, I was lethargic, weak, and sometimes mentally distanced as a result of the drugs I was receiving. But Jason never complained. He called me a champ and made me feel like the most special woman in the world. He became more than a husband to me during that time, he became one of my heroes, as well.
Jason is a good man. There are moments of integrity and sacrifice that I see behind closed doors that no one else will ever get to witness. His heart is one of the most generous I have ever encountered. He is romantic, and he puts effort into our marriage. He still brings home flowers just because. His passion for the local church is inspiring. His desire to further God’s Kingdom is convicting.
Jason is truly worthy of honor.
