It's been a whirlwind the past year. I've finally came to the conclusion that life doesn't settle down and I don't foresee it slowing down anytime soon, but I enjoy life. I like where I am right now.
I enjoy being the help meet to my husband. It is the best job in the entire world and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I remember when we were dating I would get the butterflies in my tummy. I was SO excited to see him (and maybe nervous too!). It is different now, I don't get them in my stomach anymore, I get them in my heart and soul. My soul comes alive each day I am in his presence. I know that with him, we are one flesh and my heart beats with his, when we aren't together I ache and long for the rest of my heart to be close to me.
I've been searching and seeking where my place is in this world we call "ministry". And I've found it. I have found it as the missing rib in my husband's side.
There's no greater joy than serving him and strengthening him.
I'm learning to respect him and trust his guidance for our lives. Even when I'm fearful and I'm hesitant, I have learned to follow Him. Even if he is wrong, God honors my obedience in what he has asked me to do, to follow under the headship of my husband.
We do not know where this next year will take us, but I'm ready. I'm ready to face it full on with my whole being no matter how ill prepared or fearful I am. I can't wait to see how much more our love grows for each other. I can already tell you that I love him more than I did a year ago and perfect love casts out fear.
