The Beauty of Being Married to a Godly Man

I don't think I quite grasped going into my marriage just what a blessing I have in my husband. I love my husband's humor, his personality is outgoing, definitely not shy of strangers, he is warm and welcoming to those he meets, but one of the things I love most about my husband, is his love for me. His care to find out ways to serve me, to find out things I enjoy and to hear him pray for us. It's a revelation, probably more delayed then my simple mind would have liked, but it became clear just how deep God's love is for me. I am amazed to see Bo love me with such selflessness and it occurred to me, just how precious my God's love is for me. And how little I thank Him for it, how often I don't think of its depth, or its richness. During my day, my husband is constantly on my mind, and it brings me comfort to know my husband loves me, he's made a promise before God to do so. Yet, oh how humbling it is to know how little I meditate on the Love of God. And He is eternal, to dwell just on this attribute of His is inexhaustible. Romans 5:6-10 come to mind, 1 John 4 comes to mind. How rich my devotion and the output of my love for my husband would be as well as for others would be if i grew in my understanding of God's love for me. My prayer: Psalm 119:66 "Teach me good discernment and knowledge, For I believe in Your commandments."... v. 73 "Your hands made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments."
just some thoughts, thanks, my husband, for reading:)
