Dear John. | { Marriage }

Dearest Husband,
There are moments when I’m reminded of the absolute gift I’ve been given in having you for a husband. And in those moments, it’s one of my life’s biggest regrets that I don’t spend pretty much every minute of every day telling you that I adore you. That I treasure you. That it’s my life’s greatest joy {after having been set free in Christ} to have you as a best friend.

I have a husband who’s truly a help mate, and who challenges me to be so. A man who strives to lead me to Yehovah daily. A man who is creative, thoughtful, hardworking, loving, unbelievably patient, and kind. A man who has lived out grace to me.

Knowing you is one of the most wonderful, challenging, delightful, worthwhile, and amazing things I will ever experience.

I love that I get to know you even more as you grow even more into your adulthood – into parenthood – and as you lead our family to where the Lord is convicting you to do so.

It is my prayer that I will properly respect your leadership, that I will appropriately value every. single. moment. I have the opportunity to spend alone with you, and that I will begin to adequately express His love for you, my love for you.

With love, His love,
Your Wife.

Today my love

Today… you bring me peaceful satisfaction that only a Beautiful Creator could have dreamt up. His imagination for us is wild and adventurous, even in moments that feel common He is fusing me heart and soul to you… which is a miraculous thing to behold. Even though I have nothing to confess today (beyond my weakness and His strength), I know that the enemy is waiting for a chance to break our connection and steal our love away from each other. Pray that I would fight for us until death severs our earthly connection and bring us before His glorious face.

Sun breaking over horizon

Today… as I look out over the next few years we are only beginning to see the work He is doing. Paying off our debt and breaking free from materialism are just glimpses of the things He has planned. Our marriage is supposed to be a picture of redemption, from Christ to his bride. That story will be told and retold as we walk through different stages of life.

Today… I am grateful for your love and content with my life.
