Where do I begin?
What words can I really command to relate it all?
It seems too obvious, but I’ll start here:
I’m so thankful to Jesus for my husband and all the years we’ve shared.
I love him, dearly.
It just doesn’t seem to evoke the depth of my experience.
And since I’ve never been a poet, I’ll have to satisfy myself with:
“Praise You, Jesus!Thank You for the wonderful gift of my husband! I can’t imagine life without him!”
(That’s a little better!)
(When in doubt, use more exclamation marks!)
It’s difficult to squeeze the full meaning out of those words.
It seems nearly impossible to crystalize emotion into black and white,
words on a screen.
Words can not express the years of God’s love and provision through my husband to me.
They don’t even come close.
My husband has been such an incredible gift from God.
I’m truly thankful.
I’ve not always realized it, unfortunately.
Infact, at times, I’ve chosen to belittle the blessing and focus instead on my own interpretation of how I wanted to be blessed.
I’ve said things I’ve regretted.
I’ve made mistakes which have trodden upon the heart of my spouse.
I’ve even been hurtful without any idea of the fact.
Yet, through it all my husband still loves me,
and I love him.
Because love is a choice.
And we choose it daily.
Because love is a gift,
and we’ve both received it, fully.
Because love was actually God’s idea from the first.
He gave Eve to Adam.
He gave Sarah to Abraham.
And He gave me to my husband.
What a wonderful blessing!
So on this,
I can say,
“Happy Anniversary, darling!
I thank God for you!”
