Better Late Than Never

My wife and I are in the 27th year of getting to know one another. This is our 23rd year of marriage after dating four years prior. She’s been a near perfect wife most of our journey together. On the other hand I’ve always had perfect intentions. However, my actions and words have not always matched my intentions.

For years I’ve been taking notes from my wife. She gracefully shows me what unconditional love looks like in a spouse. She acts with such patience and kindness. Her love compels me to want to love her more. Even more to demonstrate such love to her everyday.

Yep! I’m still learning how to love her the Jesus way. Finally, I’m focused on showing her she is the number one earthly love of my life. Outside of seeking to love God with all my heart she is supposed to be my first priority. I hope to be an example to all four of my boys. I want them to see that love can grow and last a lifetime. This is only possible when two people choose to walk with God and each other with love no matter what life brings!

(1 Corinthians 13:4-8) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
