Happy Birthday!

Since today is a very special day around the Dorminy house, I thought I might risk taking unauthorized control of the blog in honor of my wife.  Please note that there have been other times during the life of this blog where I should have spoken up (i.e. while some of you were besmirching my character over the “gravy burger”…just remember that we “mock what we don’t understand”).

Proverbs 18:22 says “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” and 19:14 tells us that “a prudent wife is from the Lord”.  Kristy has been a blessing from the Lord in my life and in the life of my children.  It brings me great joy that Ruby, Molly, and Mack have a godly mother who models for them a life of integrity on a daily basis.  Words like selfless, kind, diligent, humble, giving, and servant come to mind when I think of the service of my wife over the past 9 years of marriage. She is my greatest and closest friend and God has allowed my love for her to continually grow since we said “I do” on January 27, 2001.

It should be said that my wife is slightly older than I am (some of you are asking right now why is that something that “should be said”…I would ask you to mind your own business).  I will not take the time to recount for you the way my wife (who is slightly older) seduced me (who is slightly younger) during those early days of college.  I will just remind you of the words of that great song by Conway Twitty…”Older women make beautiful lovers” and say that I am glad she did!


Dear God, thank you for the blessing that my wife has been in many of our lives.  Thank you for the person she has become as she has walked with you in Your Word.  It is my prayer that You would bless the days that you give us to work together, side by side, in the field of life as we desire to raise godly children and make disciples of the nations.  Amen.


Until another appropriate time….God Bless

    and that Conway Twitty song is one of my favorites…an oldie, but a goodie! kind of like Kristy, huh?!? 🙂

  2. LOL…not only at Josh’s Tweety reference (hee hee) but also at Cacy’s comments…”oldie, but goodie” is something I could never say since I am always the “oldie.” BUT, Josh, this is a wonderful post…funny and witty and oh so sweet…good job youngun!

    And Happy Birthday to my “younger” sis…have a good day 🙂

  3. BTW, where are the pictures? You didn’t trail behind Kristy on her special day…stalking her like the paparazzi to get that perfect shot?

    Kristy…you are still way younger than me!!! And ESPECIALLY Scotty 🙂

  8. I can really relate to Shana…we must meet. I am Kristy’s favorite cousin. Josh, you know there is something about girls who went to Middle GA.College…ask my Dan. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTY…LUV YOU!!!! call me

  9. If anyone wants to hear the REAL TRUTH about the seduction… call me… I was there at the Huddle House. “Baby” Dorminy was mesmorized by that great tan, curly hair and big smile. She was beating him off with a stick! When he figured out she was the REAL DEAL… he was ruined for life:)
