My husband is a wise man.

My husband is a wise man.

Proverbs 14:16
A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil...


Proverbs 24:5
A wise man is strong, And a man of knowledge increases power.


Ecclesiastes 7:19
Wisdom strengthens a wise man more than ten rulers who are in a city.


Ecclesiastes 10:12
Words from the mouth of a wise man are gracious...


Matthew 7:24
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.


And God has blessed me richly in my husband.


Psalm 1:1
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!


Psalm 34:8
O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!


Psalm 40:4
How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.


Psalm 84:12
O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!


2 Samuel 22:47
The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be God, the rock of my salvation.


Psalm 127:3
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward.


As the beautiful words of a dedicated woman were shared in Ruth, so I say to you publicly again:


"Where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may the LORD do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me."


I love you, Mark, on this our 14th wedding anniversary!

For a Christian man, I cannot picture a more fitting homage, than to compare him to God's word. Since that is our standard after all, (and he knows that), I *know* this must have encouraged and blessed your husband tremendously!

What a precious gift you must be to him. Love languages aside, what man would not want to hear (or read) such words of praise from his beloved?

Our anniversary is next week, and you certainly have inspired me to bless my Hubby with words of meaningful praise! Thank you for such a beautiful post! You have encouraged me in my role as a wife!
