Thankful for My Husband

Today we celebrated 26 years of marriage. As I looked at my husband I still wonder why he chose me. I did not make it easy for him, and there was nothing particularly lovely about me during those years. I was lost, broken, and believed I was unloveable. Yet this man saw through the brokeness, the pain, and the walls and saw the woman he knew I would be. He has been patient, loving, forgiving and encouraging as I have walked a journey of healing and learning. He has alway been by my side, loving me more and more each day. I will never understand why, but I am thankful. God has used my husband in my life in so many extraordinary ways that I stand amazed.

My darling I love you forever and a day.

  1. Happy anniversary! His persistence paid off!

  2. Happy Anniversary! As I was reading how you described yourself and how patient and loving was, I couldn't help but think how our God is with us. He is patient, kind, merciful and loving. Oh and did I mention forgiving?

    Happy Thanksgiving too.



Leave me some joy...
