This morning, just before my eyes reluctantly began to peek at the morning sun, it hit me. I love my husband. I cannot bear to live without him. He is my best friend in the entire world. I can tell him anything – ANYTHING! We share 3 wonderful boys. Life has not ever been completely easy, but we have had the most amazing Godly support available. We have walked thru extremely bad times, extremely good times, vacations, road trips, family losses, heartache, messy houses, construction projects, miracles, valleys, employment, non-employment, anger, love, diets, clothing size changes, depression, surgery. I cannot express the amount of life you experience when you are together with a person for 22 years and you work thru the tough times to strive for better than. There is nothing more special in life than a friend who knows you and loves you anyway.
I was listening to the radio one day and heard a radio preacher on Focal Point say, “If you are married, you have found your soul mate.” So much truth in this statement. There will always be problems and issues, but the best results always come when people decide that the relationship and the family that they have began is more important than the fight or the right.
The Story of Us has one of the best endings, in my humble opinion, regarding this:
Today i pray for the children, the families, the spouses that are struggling. I pray that they would find the love, the patience, the heart for the one they are joined with. I pray for God’s loving embrace to surround them. I pray that God’s people would come alongside to comfort and support each one. I pray that blame would be cast into the depth of the pit from whence it came. I pray that each one would come to their knees in prayer and cry out to the only one who can heal each wound and protect each heart. Today i prayed for those considering leaving as an option…
Today i pray for the children, the families, the spouses, that have endured. I pray that they would experience blessings in their patience, peace in their homes, love that cannot be explained. I pray God’s protection when the enemy rages thru and calm within the storms of life. I pray that each one would realize the depth of their blessings and be overcome with gratitude for each moment that they have had together.
