I Do, I Did, and I Will…


Good morning, Family:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Today is special day for me. Three years ago today, I said, “I Do” to my amazing husband. 

Marriage is a journey, an adventure, a drama, a love story, and on some days a mystery. 

I can say, with all truth in my heart, that I am a better person because of my husband. We have grown and have learned so much about each other and our selves as well.

Even before I met my husband, God began preparing me to be the wife he had called me to be. I believe the role of a wife is a ministry and a calling. I knew the qualities I wanted in a husband, but before we could meet, God had to prepare me to be ready for such a man. 

There are three main things that I am called to do, as a wife to my husband. First, my role is to be my husband’s help and support, both in the home and outside the home. Secondly, my role is to be my husband’s intercessor and prayer warrior. Third, my role is to fulfill the desires and needs of my husband. 

In my heart, I know that as I support and cheer my husband on, he will have better success in walking into his divine destiny. My role is to keep his head lifted, his heart and body satisfied, and his mind focused on the road ahead. 

When he is having a bad day, it is my calling,  as a his wife, to look him the eyes and remind him he is a king, a mighty man of God, a man of integrity and good character. No matter how the world treats him or sees him, it is my job to remind him that he is royalty. 

When my husband and I first got married, the Holy Spirit led me to tape different encouraging phrases around the house. The purpose was even if I am not in the room, I never want you to forget who you are and how much I love and adore you.

Today, I honor my husband, my best friend, my warrior, my problem solver and my love. May God continue to lead you as you lead our family. 

Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.
