Husbands are such a unique gift from God.
The last few months have been a rough portion of life. Health issues, personal issues, life issues, the list could go on and on.
There are moments when disengaging from life would be much easier. I could easily disengage into my computer, my phone, the TV, a book, or any other nearby device.
But then there’s my gift.
Eight years ago today, God gave me this gift knowing I needed a gift to help me draw closer to God. The Lord knew I needed a man who wouldn’t let me disengage when life got tough. I needed a man who would continually remind me to put my eyes heavenward.
This man is my gift from God.
Over the past eight years, we have loved a lot, laughed a lot, cried a lot, and had a lot of babies.
Life has changed since we first said “I do”. Who knew eight years later we would be growing gray and think sleeping until 6am was sleeping in? But the one thing that is still the same is how incredible my gift from God is.
So today, on our anniversary, I want to stop and acknowledge Brent and what a vital point he is in my relationship with the Lord. He has encouraged me, prayed for me, given me the proper perspective, found books for me to read, loved me unconditionally, and taught me so much about what it means to chase after God. I love you Brent Minter. Thank you for marrying me eight years ago!
