A letter to my husband: 8 years later

In January Lester and I celebrated 8 years of marriage.
8 wonderful years. 8 years worth of love. 8 years worth of beautiful memories. 8 years we were haven’t argued once…….. Rewind on that last one.
Who are we kidding?
In 8 years we have argued our fair share, in 8 years we have chosen to stay mad more that I would like to admit and in 8 years we have argued over the silliest of things, like forgetting to shut the trash can lid or forgetting to put the water resistant sheet on our bed. Yes all so silly but at it’s the moment it really wasn’t.
At that time we believed with all our heart we had the right to have that argument, to stay mad to ignore and I’m sorry, yet that’s marriage. Marriage is two very different people trying to become one. Trying to ignore, in our case, the cultural differences to ignore the way we were raised and become one.  To choose no matter what to love each other. To love each and every day!

And you my love, do it every single day. You choose to ignore my hard-headedness, to ignore my mistaken ways, to ignore my everyday troubles, complaints and choose to love one more time.

Just today I heard a very heartbreaking news about Lisa Terkuest. About her decision to divorce her husband, and I’m not going to make any comments about it or even give you my opinion but I will tell you what I’m reminded of one thing. The enemy is out to get us. Sadly we believe that the enemy doesn’t know us, but he does. He knows our troubles, he knows bother us and what doesn’t and more than anything he knows what we can accomplish together.

The enemy only fights you if your potential in the kingdom of God is greater than he can handle, that’s why you see people who have big gifts outside in the world, wondering and so very lost.

So to you, my wonderful husband, thank you for loving me, thank you for choosing me over and over again, thank you for letting God use you and for letting Him work through you.
I know I’m hard, but together with God on our side we can do anything, we can conquer this world and make sure we step on the enemy’s tiny head.

And you, my friend, reading this, whether you believe or not, whether Christian or not remember that God is always with you and lives anxiously to have you Him, in His glory and working for His kingdom!
