A Love Letter


It’s been a while since I wrote you a letter.  I know I don’t always do a great job of communicating verbally, so let me tell you in writing: I love you.  I believe in you.  I trust you.

You are a great mother.  I knew you would be.  You’ll remember a letter I wrote to you about seven or eight years ago (before we were married).  I wrote that I could see you like a mother lion – strong, protective, relentless.  I know it is a serious, difficult job, but you are doing wonderfully.

I want to encourage you, but sometimes I don’t really know how.  I want you to be happy.  I want you to have peace.  I want your heart to be full of joy.  I will continue to do everything I can for you.

I know this upcoming move across the country is a little scary.  Selling our home, finding a new one, moving the kids, leaving our friends, being farther from family… I’m not going to lie and say it will be easy.  But I know we can do it.  I know you can do it!  I know God goes with us wherever we go.  I pray that he continues to speak to you and give you peace and hope and courage.

Floey, I am blessed because of you.  I am a fortunate man, and I realize it.  I don’t take you for granted.  I am proud to be your husband.  I am proud you are my wife.
