Thankful for My Husband

Another week rolls by and here we are at Thankful Thursday again! This week I’m grateful for all the ways that God has blessed me in my marriage.

Its something that we can take for granted at times. We get comfortable with our spouses and our lives together and forget to give thanks for the many ways in which our husbands are blessings to us.  Have we told our husbands lately how we appreciate them?

With all that’s been going on in our family, I find myself reflecting more and more on this and thanking God that He relentlessly knocked on the doors of our hearts. As our days together continue to unfold, revealing the patterns that God has intricately woven to create one brilliant work from the threads of two separate lives, I feel so blessed.

I am blessed because my husband, at long last, is my best friend and I am his. He is my brother… I can talk to him for hours about stuff I wouldn’t share with anyone else (and we fight like cat and dog sometimes) He is my father…he works so hard to provide for me.. I feel safe in his arms and I can turn to him with my problems (and he can kiss it better too). He is my boyfriend… he makes me all giggly and I still blush when he teases me (and his kiss still gives me butterflies).

The bottom line…he’s the one I want to be with, the other half of the whole and… he completes me (yeah I said it!) He is.. THE MAN! The one God created for me to spend my life with... his destiny and mine are woven together by an Almighty and Loving Father.. to whom I give all my thanks and praise.

A hand to hold…in good times and bad.
Kisses to make up after a fight.
That Beauty can still calm the Beast. ;-) 
Love shining in his eyes.
Arms holding me tight.
A broad shoulder to cry on.
Walks on the beach.
Soft, warm sand and water like warm silk.
Balmy breezes and brilliant blue sky.
Watching the sun go down on a wonderful day.
Whispered prayers, holding hands all alone on the sand.
Big beautiful moon shining through trees.
For all God has wrought to make us new creations.
And for all He will do to make us even better.

My friends, tell your husbands today how much you appreciate them. Whisper a prayer of thanks to a benevolent Father who lavishes us with His blessings and please remember to whisper a little prayer for those who are struggling in their marriages, or those who are lonely, widowed or divorced. Whisper a little prayer for Nicholas and Joanna.

Thank you for your prayers ..you all shine so brightly for Jesus!
