My Wifes BD and its significance…

28 04 2010

Karen’s significance starts with birth.  I praise God she was given life.  God knew when she was born that He brought her into this world for me.  To be my helper, my encourager, my assistant and my friend.

In Proverbs alone, a wife is mentioned 16 times.  A wife should eminate wisdom and Karen does that and more.  Proverbs 18:22 says, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.” Proverbs 12:4a says “A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,”

Kara is home and she stayed up last night and baked Karen a Chocolate Ganosh cake.  She went all for her momma and to me, that is significant.  How many moms have their 22 year old daughter as a best friend and will go over the top for her on her Birthday.

Karen’s significance is that she brings me great favor and she is my crown.  I don’t deserve her but neither do I deserve God’s grace.  I’ve always told young couples that a husband and a wife should be Jesus to one another.  Spouses should provide each other with love, encouragement, support, MERCY, GRACE, FORGIVENESS and all the other characteristics of God.  It’s a tough task and we’ll never be perfect at it, BUT, Karen epitomizes that more than anyone I have ever met.

After work I picked Karen and Kara up and surprised them with a pedicure (and Karen got a manicure as well) then on to Bergamo’s in Downtown Greenville.  We had SO much fun…

First, the pedicure!

Then the manicure...

Finally this! Dinner at Bergamo's. Thanks John Moore for recommending table #1.

Karen – I just wanted to thank you for being my wife, the mother of our children, my best friend and such a role model for so many other young women.  I am SO proud of you and hope and pray you have a great day today!

Proverbs 5:18

“May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.”

I'm the most blessed man in the world!
