Letter To My Husband: Happy & Loved

Dear Benjamin/Benny/Babe,

Can you believe it has already been 10 years since we said, “I do.”? When I think back to that day, I see myself as a scared young girl. I had been let down by so many people in my life that I was legitimately worried you wouldn’t be there. But since that day you have been the one and only constant in my life, or so I thought. I now know that the Lord has been with us every single day of our journey together. Even though we never made Him a priority, He was there! Growing up I never imagined I would ever be as happy & loved as I am with you. I pray one day our daughter will find someone just as great as you are. I don’t tell you enough how much you mean to me and how honored and humbled I am that God chose me to be your wife. I know I am not the easiest person to love, but with God’s help I hope to become the wife you truly deserve!

With His love I know I can be the mother I have always dreamed of being. I am so blessed to know that no matter what I have done and no matter how hard I’ve tried pushing you away, you never left. I can truly see the way Christ loves, in the way you love. You give so much of yourself to those you love and care for. Even those who don’t deserve it, that being myself at times. Witnessing this remarkable attribute of yours makes me want to do better, be better, love better. There are so many ways you have inspired me. You are a kind and caring person, a devoted husband, loving father, dedicated worker and ambitious student.

Babe, I know you have many dreams and I pray you are able to chase them all one day. But you should know that you fulfill all of my wildest dreams! To have someone love and adore me the way you do is much more than some people get to experience in a lifetime. And I found that love at 17. I thank God every day for you and our marriage. I long for the day we pray together; having that intimate time with God together will bring us closer and help build a God-centered marriage. I am gifting you with Husband After God. I hope it touches you and brings you closer to God. Can’t wait to see what the next 10 years look like!
