The blessing of a spouse!
Most of us longed to find the person who would love us the rest of our life. My dream like most was to grow up, get married and have kids. As I have shared before I was married right out of college and it was a very long difficult 10 years and I did not get my happily ever after.
But when I saw this quote by Max Lucado I loved it. It is easy for time to go by and for us to forget what a treasure we have in our spouse. Life is busy, the chores of running a house and making a living can easily distract you from the importance of valuing your spouse. Showing your deep passion and loving them in the middle of it all will make a difference.
The farmer and I have been married almost 6 years now and I have found my happily ever after. I am so thankful that I have done a better job of never letting my love for him go unspoken. I have treasured him and told him about it daily. I have proudly kept him a priority. As I have done all these things he has been doing them as well.
Marriage is a beautiful partnership. Having someone to love and serve the Lord with is a dream come true. The death of a marriage is a very difficult time in anyone’s life. But like in all things God’s love never weavers. He is still faithful and will love and support you through it. There is hope.
