What a privilege it is to be your husband! What a joy it is to experience this life with you! As Peter’s first birthday approaches, I am reminded of how giving you are, of how giving you have been. I am struck by how Christ-like you are, giving your entire being for Peter’s sake. It is an incredible witness of self-sacrifice and of pure love.
In this month of trust, I look forward to the many adventures we have ahead! I keep reflecting on the quote, “Jesus promised his disciples three things – that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.” I am realizing that becoming your husband has led me into a deeper discipleship with Christ. My true vocation as a husband and father has been the purest joy, and it has never been boring. There is always something just on the horizon that keeps us on our toes! And how can I be fearful, when I know with my whole heart that I am exactly where I am meant to be, with you by my side?
Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for all that I see, and especially for the things I don’t always see. Thank you for being such an amazing mother. Thank you for being my wife. Thank you for walking with me as we journey toward Heaven.
