Whoop Whoop….Today Richard Dallas Smith turns 52 years old.
Who’s the perfect husband?
It’s your gentleness and caring
And the happiness you give
A heart full of warmth and kindness
And the thoughtful way you live
Who makes a husband special
Is created at the start
The most important thing of all
The love that’s in your heart
Music has always been a very important part of Richard’s and my life. In fact music served as the medium which brought us together. In high school Richard sang in the choir and played a French horn in the band. I will never forget the moment I realized just how gifted he was…
He was playing in a band concert one evening and invited me to go. He appeared on my front door step wearing a band uniform covered in medals; medals he had won in competitions. I have always loved a man in uniform but for that uniform to be covered in BLING!!! (Did I mention, I Love Bling ♥)
Richard has continued to exercise his passion for music by singing in the church choir and by singing solos when asked. But more important than how he sings, it is what he sings…
Richard’s passion for the Lord becomes evident with the release of the first note from his mouth. He sings of the God’s love, mercy, and grace with such conviction and emotion…
Today, I celebrate as I get to not only attend church and worship my risen Savior, I also get to witness my precious husband sing joyfully to the Lord and worship our Savior in song.
Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Psalms 33:1
