I am in the exact same spot I was 15 years ago today.
The same spot I was 21 years ago today.
Falling and broken.
There is not a day or a time.
For I haven't fallen yet. I haven't achieved it yet.
I am completely in the present tense.
Falling in love with the most perfect wife a man could ask for.
I am in that same predicament of falling in love, squiggles in the tummy, lump in the back of the throat falling.
The same spot of wanting to spend every second with the most amazing women I have ever met.
The same spot of forsaking all others....cleaved.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Gen2:24)
Today I show my graciousness to my Father.
A humble appreciation for providing me such a gift for a wife, a partner, a best friend.
I offer my sincere gratitude to the one that loves me so much, that He has sent someone to show me what love is.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
(1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
I offer myself broken to my Father.
Broken in that I never deserve the grace that He has given
Broken in the safe arms that my Father provides.
Broken in awe of the dominion that He allows me to exist.
Broken in the knowledge that without my Father, I have no breath, no heartbeat, no life.
Falling and Broken for the only one that could have possibly sent me the multitudes of blessings that my wife has bestowed upon me.
Today as I reaffirm the covenant I made to my wife, Deborra Leigh Green in public profession, sanctified in obedience to my Father and offered humbly back to my savior and redeemer Jesus Christ.
As I love my Father, I love you Leigh.... With all my heart, all my soul and all my mind...
