There are times that I wake up and become amazed that I am married, with three children, with a job, etc… and you know, some of my long time loved ones are more amazed than I. But, I don’t claim this as a credit to myself. My wife is to whom I owe this honor of seeing that I am married. It hasn’t been easy these eight years, and this last year the worst, but she has stayed beside me and behind me and before me, even when I tried to bolt.
So today, I publicly declare that I love my wife and indeed, all good things come from God and she surely does.
…Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies….. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life…….Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her:
“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”…
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. (Pro 31:10-31 NLT)
