My Amazing Wife
 
Proverbs 18:22 states, "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor of the Lord."  These are the words that the minister quoted when he conducted my wedding.  Little did I realize how those words would be proven to be true again and again.  As a wife, mother, and pastor's wife, I have watched how she has tried to do her best in each of the roles that God has given her.  Being a wife and mother is hard enough and the responsibilities can be overwhelming, but as a pastor's wife, she has always sought to love and serve others, even when her world is turned upside down.

I thank God for this woman He has placed in my life.  God has blessed her with the spiritual gift of mercy.  I have observed how she has demonstrated mercy to those who have abused her, accused her, and is still there to offer words of encouragement to them when they are hurting.  If I didn't see how she treated others, I would still be convinced of her character by how long she has been putting up with me.  I'm not perfect (I know this is shocking) and I have plenty of moments when I am down, but I thank God for my wife, Cindy, who has been not only a Godly example to my children, but a loving and faithful wife, who has been a great support at my side in doing the work of the Lord. 

Having just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, our love for each other is stronger today than it was on the day we exchanged our vows at the altar.  Even though she doesn't share my affinity for superhero movies and even though she doesn't concede to my request of having more pizza on the menu, she is the love of my life and I thank God for her every day!
