Proverbs 18:22 The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord.
You can find the good or the bad in anything and marriage is no different. Today I want to glorify my marriage about the good things and the treasure that my wife is.
We are a team. It is great to know that I have a lifelong team mate and partner. This is someone that I can work to achieve things together (raising our family, planning a vacation, career goals, etc.), I know we are in this together.
I have a companion. I have a lifetime partner. I have someone that I can share life with. I have a friend that I can do things with. Albeit we don't have a lot of extra time, but we are working on creative ways to make some. And not to mention, a friend with benefits.
We get to grow together. As a couple and family, we get to share all the milestones and achievements together. Life certainly would not be as interesting with just me.
I have help! I have someone to help me when I'm down. If I have had a rough day, I have someone to pick up the load. That is huge with 2 little ones.
I have encouragement. I have someone to cheer me on and build me up (whether I am high or low)
At the end of the day, I get to come home to someone. Someone that accepts me and loves me.
Marriage is a constant work in progress. There are always areas to be improved and things to be learned. When one or the other stops working... so does the marriage.
I love you Laura Shade and look forward to a life of learning and loving you!
