In week 5 of 52 Weeks of Gratefulness, I give thanks for a wife.
“This is my Son, in whom I am well pleased,” is what God says of Jesus. That leaves me in awe. To receive such an affirmation from the God of the universe, I can’t imagine it. There is nothing I’d like more than to know God is pleased with me.
Because of His pleasure in and love for His Son Jesus, who was obedient to death, God gives Him a people.
He gives me a wife.
I find that the more like His Son that He makes me, the more obedient I become, the more of her I get.
Words fail me to express all that my wife is to me.
My very being aches for her. I so adore her.
She catches me staring at times because I can scarcely believe it.
I examine her, every inch of her, the way one might examine an unbelievable treasure.
She is an indescribable gift that leaves me in awe.
“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord.” – Proverbs 18:22
