Day 11 of Giving Thanks

Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land. Prov 31:23

Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her… Prov 31:28

I was thinking last night (in the wee hours when I was lying awake in my bed) about how much I want to be an encouragement and blessing to my husband’s life. I want to be someone who has made his life better, someone who helped enhance his ministry, someone who helped him become who God wanted  him to be.

But the reality is, HE is the one who blesses me! My husband loves me and I’m always surprised by the magnitude of it. He pampers me, he praises me, he delights in me, he laughs at my jokes and loves to have me on his arm to show me off. After 8 babies and many pounds, he still finds me attractive. No, that’s not true. He finds me MORE attractive than when we first got married.

My husband is so easy to be married to. He never lords it over me. He always seeks my counsel and holds my views with greater weight than anyone else’s.

All these years I wanted to be HIS encouragement and help only to realize how much it has been the other way around. But having such a caring, protective, supportive husband has helped to make ME a better wife. I only hope it has been somewhat true for him.

Thank you, Lord, for my wonderful husband and for such a wonderful marriage!
