My husband rocks my world.
Every. Single Day. He is my best friend, my lover, my husband, my rock, my pilot, my forever. I’m not ashamed to proclaim it loud and proud!
We currently abide in a time and culture in which it, quite simply, isn’t ‘cool’ to love your spouse anymore. The socially acceptable ‘norm’ is to share memes that demean them, make jokes at their expense, and dishonor them with our words, attitudes, and actions every time we get a chance. Friends, it’s destroying our marriages.
The only truth this world maintains is the one which satisfies our own, individual, selfish desires. But love is not selfish! It is the union of two imperfect people who constantly struggle to intentionally put the needs of another human above their own. It’s hard work.
But, oh, how it’s worth it!
If loving my husband isn’t ‘cool’, then I don’t want to be cool.
He is my life’s joy; my everything! He encourages me, reigns me in, holds me tightly, gives me space, makes me laugh, and laughs even when I’m not funny (I am tho!).
He knows my strengths…and weaknesses…and loves me anyway. Oh, how he loves me! And vice versa. We choose one another every day. Yesterday, today, forever.
We are not perfect; we are perfect together.
Is it always easy? No, of course not! Sometimes we have to remember to fight for each other and not against one another. Sometimes we hurt each other have to forgive. But we always do. We decided a very long time ago that leaving was not an option; and here we are, still doing this thing. He’s worth the fight.
And do you know what? I love him more today than every day before. In fact, I love him so much it hurts. The feel of his breath on my skin, the scent of him, the safety of his arms wrapped around me… These things break me.
The hard times have made us stronger. The distance has made us closer. He is mine; I am his. I am madly, deeply, fiercely in love with that man. I am not ashamed of that. I don’t care what the world says.
Together, forever; he and I against the world. If I had the chance to do it all over again?
In a heartbeat.
So guess what? In a culture that degrades marriage and finds it easier to complain, bemoan, and leave than lift up, encourage, and stay…I am going to courageously shout it out at the top of my lungs for all of heaven and earth to hear every chance I get:
I am overwhelmingly, over-the-top, in love with my husband.
I hope you will too…I pray that it’s contagious. Love them courageously, family. Your spouse is a beautiful gift.
