Love what you Do~Do what you Love


Yesterday was my husband’s birthday.  I realized that I had not shared about his hobby on my blog before.  He is an artist and is very good, in my humble opinion 😉  His work is at http://www.southernillinoismercantileco.com  

He also has a Facebook page you are welcomed to check out and like if you wish…https://www.facebook.com/aaallgaierartwork/

I thought I would share a bit of his work.  I admit I am a bit biased…..but it is a joy watching him do something he loves. He loved to paint and sketch as much as I like to write.

These are just a few of his pieces.  Each piece is signed with:

1 Corinthians 10:31 “So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God.” AMP

So love what you do, and do what you love…..I write, he paints and sketches. We will never be rich and famous….but we will always be content.

Happy Birthday to The Love of my Life!

Happy Birthday to my Sons’ Father…and The Love of my Life!


My hubby of almost 35 years is 55 years of age today!   If you do the math…. you will see that we were mere babes when we married!

But I write a blog entitled “Teacher Mom Always” and Dad needs to be somewhere in that title. And this blog, “Encouragement for His Daughters” came to me because I have had a husband who has encouraged my walk with Christ.

My two adult sons have had the most wonderful man as a father. The role model he has been for them has been incredible. How do I know?

I watch them with their wives. They treat their wives with the utmost tenderness…as my husband did and does me. And they tease their wives incessantly, as my husband did and still does…. But most importantly, they understand the love of their heavenly Father.

No matter how tired he was when he came in from work, some nights not until 8:30pm…he spent time with the boys in some capacity. Either a whiffle ball game, card game, biking…you name it.

So Happy Birthday to the most incredible Dad I know.

And Happy Birthday to my best friend and the love of my life. The man who cooks, cleans and does laundry because I work outside of the home part time. The man who values my happiness above his own.

Thank you for allowing the boys to see a wonderful role model. And thank you for allowing them to understand the unconditional love of their heavenly Father. And thank you for loving me without condition.

Because of you dearest husband, they get it…in many ways. We all do.

~Be Blessed
