“It’s Not Easy”: An Honest Letter to My Husband on Valentine’s Day

That is the best thing about true love — it’s God ordained. And God is never content for us to stay the same. He brings us forward. He uses difficulty and turmoil and weaknesses and he changes us. We look back and we see His hand and we realize that things are different because of His tender mercy. We can rest knowing that He won’t let us stay the same. During the dry spells, this keeps us going. We know the rain will come again.

I am glad I bumped into you so long ago. I am glad we didn’t listen when they said we were too young. I am glad we didn’t listen when they said we didn’t need so many kids. I am glad we didn’t listen when they said we were too broken to fix things. In the middle of the chaos and confusion, one voice rang true, and that is the voice of our Lord, bringing — sometimes dragging — us through to the other side.

And now, my dear husband after all of these years, we have decided to put enough things aside to become good friends. I’m glad we caught on because I have a blast with you when we are able to just relax. We do still enjoy each other! We are still people, not just parents! Phew.

Thank you for being brave with me and chasing true love. Hollywood can keep their version. I want our love, the kind that is wrapped in the Gospel and keeps giving long after we are no longer in the mood to do so. I love the journey of us. And I can’t wait to walk all of the rest of my steps with you.

Happy Valentine’s Day
Your Wife
