Today is the most special day in my life. Why? Because today is my sweet husband’s birthday. And without this day, I wouldn’t have my best friend to celebrate. I wouldn’t have someone to laugh with, love with, do life with if it weren’t for today. So today is the most special day. The day I thank God for everyday.
So today, I celebrate not only the fact that Adam is getting another year older. But the fact that he is the most caring, supportive, loving husband. He makes me laugh, sometimes makes me cry, and is always there to make it all better. His hard work does not go unnoticed. And I know he will be the greatest dad to our little girl. Happy Birthday Adam.
I wrote last week about how God puts people in our life for a reason. To walk with on the journey of our faith. He doesn’t want us to do this alone. He sends us siblings, friendships, coworkers, and even strangers to show the love He has for us. But every once in a while He sends that one special person that is going to be the closest example of His unwavering love. A love that resembles commitment, support, forgiveness, and trust. While it will never be as strong as the love Jesus has for us, it comes extremely close.
This kind of love doesn’t always come in a spouse. It can come in many different forms, through many different seasons of life. But it is a love to be cherished. A love to be thankful for. In the Bible, He writes in Ecclesiastes how “two is better than one, for if they fall, one will lift up the other (4:9).” And again in Proverbs saying “as iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend (27:17).”
God wants us to find this love.
