The Angel By My Side

Tonight, I want to take the time to brag on my husband. I once read a quote that says: "We are all a little weird and life's a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them in mutual weirdness and call it love." Now if you know me, you know Brent has a lot of my OCD weirdness to put up with, but what can I say--he loves me flaws and all.

He has always been the most amazing partner God could have given me in this life. We are that corny couple who finish each other's sentences and say the exact same thing at the exact same thing ALL the time. We stay one step ahead of each other most of the time because we already know what the other person will be thinking. I never thought I would find someone so perfect for me, but so thankful that God has had that planned for a long, long time.

Through the good times and the bad, my husband has been the angel by my side. One thing no one could ever question is how much he loves me, Audrey, and Barrett.

The last few days, not only has he been my angel, but he has been my rock. We have both been so broken over the loss of our son we had hoped and prayed for, but through it all he has been right beside me the entire time.

I was on the phone today and the person asked me, "How has your husband been through all of this? Has he stood by you?", and all I could say was "Absolutely yes. He has been amazing."

Today, I am especially thankful for my husband. I can't imagine this life any other way than walking through it side by side with him.

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Ephesians 2:22-33


I love hearing from you :)
