The Joy of Marriage

The Lord blessed me with an incredible man when He gave me my husband. After almost twenty-three years of marriage, he continues to be my best friend. This summer we've had the opportunity to have a lot of 'alone' time together, while our sons have been serving at a local Christian camp. In less than a week our concentrated time will come to an end. I must admit that I will miss it.

Today we dropped by our local community fair to drop off items that we had made. We ate supper and then spent a very short time walking around the fairgrounds. My husband checked out the displays, while I sat and watched people since my feet were hurting. I know my husband would have enjoyed staying longer and browsing around more, but he was sensitive to my being in pain, so we called it a short night, and headed home.

I feel so blessed to have a man that cares about me. He supports me in my endeavors and encourages me to be a woman of God. My husband's love, care and concern shows me in a small way, how much God loves me. What a joy to be married to a man that I love and enjoy spending time with each day.

Husbands are a wonderful blessing from the Lord. I would never be able to homeschool without the support my husband gives me each day.
