14 Years

June 6, 2008

Today is my 14th anniversary.  I have been blessed with a good wife.  With that in mind, I wish to express my gratitude to the Most High for her.  I will be spending the vast portion of the day with her, and I intend to laud her on Sunday before my sermon. 

 

That laud comes by way of a Puritan quote I found on a blog called Barry Dean 4 Christ.  The actual quote can be found on his Puritan Quotes page.

 

This quote reflects my intent to love her, even though I have failed to properly live out that intent from time to time.  The quote is from Thomas Hooker.

The man whose heart is endeared to the woman he loves…dreams of her in the night, hath her in his eye and apprehension when he awakes, museth on her as he sits at the table, walks with her when he travels… She lies in his bosom, and his heart trusts in her, which forceth all to confess that the stream of his affection, like a mighty current, runs with full tide and strength.

 

Thank you Lord for a good woman.  She is a dear blessing as my wife and an amazing mother.  Please let me live in appreciation of the marvelous person you made her to be.
