A Letter To My Husband
I am writing this letter to let the world know, I love you. You are an inspiration to me. I see what you do to make this family successful. Because of you, our relationships are strong and love is easily identified in our home.
I want you to know, that in this past season of testing, I have looked to you for leadership and you have not failed me. Your perseverance has been an example to us all. Those few times that doubt found it’s way to your tongue were few and far between and rarely lasted more than a few moments. You have consistently looked to God for answers to prayer and led us, your family, to do the same. I am very thankful that you were by my side during this time of trials in our lives.
In this next phase of life, during our building time, our working side by side time, I am looking forward once again to your leadership and decision making skills. Your business acumen and abilities will prove to be priceless in working toward the end goal that God has placed in our vision. I am looking forward to working with you, serving others as God has given us both a desire to do. I look forward to hearing your ideas and your dreams. I trust you implicitly. I will go where you lead me, because I know you follow the One who will never let us go astray.
Once we accomplish the goal, together we will reap the benefits of all our labors. Together we will experience the desires of our hearts. Together we will build our family and take in those who need a home. Together we will reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ, in both written and spoken word, and in song. We will be able to financially help every cause God has placed upon our hearts. We will travel and see God’s great creation together. We will build our dream home and constantly fill it with our family and friends, making our home a place of love and warmth, where the ones we love come to relax and enjoy life. We will sit together, cups of coffee in one hand and the Word in the other, asking God to lead us daily. We will end each day together, on our knees, thankful for each other and the blessing and favor of our God.
In the home stretch, just before we go home, I will enjoy sitting on the front porch with you, watching the sun rise. Perhaps we will speak, perhaps we won’t. It won’t matter. We will be as completely at ease with silence as we will our memories. Our conversations may be one word, for that is all it will take to convey the passing thought. We will finish each other’s thoughts, for our conversations over the years will have taught us to think alike. And when the days end, and we reach the ultimate prize, when we hear the words “well done, good and faithful servant,” I will know it is because you were at my side, that I was able to accomplish the will of God in my life.
With all my love,
