After last Monday’s post about my mum I thought I’d continue the theme of the people who influence our lives. Today I’m going to talk about my husband.
He is a serious man who comes across as aloof and unattainable by anyone who doesn’t know him. For a long while he was just a friend in a crowd of friends. I didn’t know him very well. I don’t think anyone really knew him. But then I found his sparkle.
Ok, so real men don’t sparkle, blah, blah, grunt and scratch.
But, real men need to be reminded that they shouldn’t be afraid to shine. My husband shines for me.
This adorable man taught me what love meant. He taught me that it didn’t have to be a struggle, it wasn’t a one way thing, and it can be forever. He offered me friendship, he showed me patience, he gave me respect.
We discovered we could trust each other. We could be 100% ourselves with each other. We don’t need to hide. We don’t need to pretend.
This is the kind of love that God offers all of us – and more. We don’t need to hide or pretend with Him. We can trust God with everything: our deepest darkest secrets, our joys, our fears, our dreams and our struggles. It’s a precious love that we should never take for granted.
I thank the Lord daily for my husband. Do you daily thank God for a special someone?
