When I read this weeks topic, I felt this was a perfect opportunity to share a little story with you about my wife. You see, I've read about the diversity of gifts described in 1 Cor. 12:4( Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit). I mention this because, even though she is a wife, mother, sunday school teacher, and a manager at her job, she is first and foremost a Christian. I can't count how many times she has set a profound example of how I should handle certain situations that come upon me at times. I remember a time at one of her jobs, there was this one very unruly young man that was really trying her faith and patience. I, of course, as any husband would, got a little hot under the collar over this. I knew she was upset too, but she simply said that the Lord would take care of the situation. And ,of course, he did just that and every thing was fine. But an amazing thing happened a few weeks later. This young man that was giving my wife such a hard time because of her Christianity, snide comments and all, called my wife one day and asked her to pray for him because he had gotten into trouble with the law and ended up going to jail. What was more amazing to me was that God gave my wife grace to have compassion and mercy to do just that. You see, to me Faith is a powerful gift that he has given each and every one of us. But it's up to us to put every ounce of it back toward trusting him. I'm learning as I grow older in my walk with Him that the trials I moan and groan about at times are there for a reason, to nurture in me, what my wife exemplifies in her walk with Christ. There are so many examples I could share with you but I believe this will suffice. Faith is truly a gift, but only a powerful force when put in action. I am thankful for my wife and everything she has helped me through. A shining example of Faith in action.

Your testimony is tribute to your wife's good Christian sense and the Lord's ability to use her to His glory. Though I personally don't mind, some would say it is best not to name the topic in your story. In other words to show, rather than explain. The easy conversational tone and your "heart" are indeed pleasant.

I hope you share this tribute with your wife!

You might want to separate it into several paragraphs, and to be a bit more careful with punctuation.

I like your writing style--real and conversational.

I enjoyed this wonderful example - and I can hear your heart for Him, and your wife, loud and clear. Very nice.
