Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this gracious gift of a wife, companion and friend. May I celebrate her achievements, and turn my focus away from her faults. Teach me to love, honor, and cherish my wife as Christ loved and gave Himself up for us. Give me the courage to protect her, and the wisdom to lead.
I love my kids dearly... but they will leave home one day... What will the relationship I'm left with be like. When I realized this, my husband became my first. It also makes "cutting the apron strings" a whole lot easier.
