Who Would I Be?

Who would I be today, dear, were it not for you?

Would I be the same person at all, had I not met you? We've been together so long, and met with so many challenges in that time, that I wonder--would I still be me without you?

Oh, I know our road has been rough. We've been thrown to and fro since the day we met. It seems we've blended together all of our good and bad qualities and created a whole new person out of them. For we stand as one, in spite of our outer circumstances. Your good balances my bad just as my good balances your bad.

Though there have been times when I wanted to escape and run far away from you, I am glad the good Lord stayed me. For without Him, you and I are nothing. I know you're bound to have felt the same at times. But we meant it when we said it-forever. And that makes all the difference. There is no other option for us.

We stay. We love. We learn. We grow. As time passes, I am more than ever aware of the fact that you are the best friend I will ever know, next to Jesus.

Who would I be had I not known you? Who knows?
I am me, because of you. For better or for worse.
There is no other way.

Thank you, Jesus, for the gift of a good husband and marriage. Thank you for giving me a friend to travel through life with. Help me to be worthy of this gift.

Thank you for helping to create the me of today, through my husband. Thank you, Jesus.

My prayer is that all you marrieds out there have this gift--that you can say you're married to a friend for the most part. If you can't say this, start getting to know that person again, that seeming stranger who sits across from you at the kitchen table every day. It's worth the effort.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Beth, I love this one. This must make your husband beam with joy for you to write this. I, also, do have a best friend, next to Jesus, in Mary, my wife. Thank you for sharing.
Thomas
