My wife, April Dawn!

My wife and I have been married for over nine years.  It's amazing how quickly time have passed by.  My wife is always making sure I am fed, well taken care of, and so much more.  There would be days when I felt like I don't deserve her as my wife cause you know, I can be insensitive to her needs. And yet, she would still continue to love me and smile at me when days are hard. 

So I decided to look up in the Bible of what it says about a wife and of how a husband should think of his wife as.

Proverbs 31:10-31

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Virtuous Wife

10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

My wife is an awesome housewife / mother.  She does everything.  She cleans, cooks, washes clothes, and even mow the yard!  She made sure I am resting.  I am sitting here thinking, " Only God can send me a woman like her!  So beautiful, kind, strong, wise, and full of Jesus". 

So when the Bible says, " Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her", I realized how much I loved her.  I have already given up my life for her because she sacrificed a lot for me. So when I see some men disregarding their loving wives, that saddens me.  I pray that husbands who have wives that does everything for them, appreciate what they are to them. 

Sure there are days when we have ups and downs but that doesn't stop us from loving each other more everyday!

April Dawn, I love you very much!  Thank you for being my wife!
