As I write this letter, it has been 15 years since we said I Do. Even those 17 years ago when my heart, soul and mind were totally devoted to Jesus as my husband, He knew I did not need to be alone and by a series of events He led me to you and then you asked me to become your wife. God’s word says in Proverbs 18:22 (amp), “he who finds a true wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”. Tommy you are the favored of the Lord. Even your praying Mother made sure of that….. how wonderful to marry into a Christian family with such a deep heritage of faith as yours! God knew this baby believer would need that type of support system!
As both being Believers in Christ our union started out in a true faith-filled and spirit-filled covenant marriage with God. Little did I know the part of the vows, “for better or worse” would come into our life and cause our union to be tested the very next day. Our marriage has been tested time and again which leads me to believe what the devil meant for evil God means for good. God has and will continue to replace, restore and multiply 100-fold the years the locust have eaten. God wants our union to stand as a testimony before many of His love and faithfulness. We are His and nothing can separate us from His love or for that matter each other. Not cancer, my meltdowns or failures. You have forgiven more times than I could ever ask and you have walked out 70×7. I stand in awe at your faithfulness and unconditional love for me. No one has ever loved me like you do.
Over the years God has showed me how brave you are to survive so much in your life. So many prayers He answers when I ask Him why and show me so I can understand and pray you through. Miraculous and mighty things He has done. Our marriage has grown so much stronger this last year and my prayer and hearts cry is for it to continue to grow stronger and more trusting. Tommy you are my soul-mate!
Love Your Wife
