My Husband = My Best Friend

Lately, we have been going through some things - not between my husband and I, but outside trials that have tested our resolve in God.  It has been very trying for me and made me really have to reach places in my heart to really trust God fully as we are faced with this test.  Yesterday, I was struck with fear of possible choices that may come up in the future and I was feeling unsteady, unsure of what it is that God wants us to do.  Hubby came home and walked in the door with 18 yellow roses - something that since we met has meant a symbol of our deep friendship.  He also got our daughter a glass swan with a single rose and then gave me a card that just said it all!

Since we met, my husband has been, not only my lover, but my best friend.  There has been a bond from the beginning and one that has grown deeper, stronger and holds steadfast through every storm.  It is always nice to have a gentle reminder such as this from him, to bring to remembrance these facts and give me strength to go forward together in God.

How wonderful to have that best friend. My hubs and I are the same and I couldn't not make it without Him and Christ by me.

Love you and I will pray for you. We are also going through some things as well.

Praying for you and your family during this difficult time. I read this just the other day and wrote it down so I wouldn't forget it. It seems very appropriate for your situation. "When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is remember the teacher is always quiet during a test."

How sweet of him! Whatever you're going through, trust God in all that you say and do. He will never let us down and He is faithful. Take the matter to Him in prayer and let Him handle it for you.
