Happy Birthday Donna!
Proverbs 5:18, 19 18 Let your fountain [of human life] be blessed [with the rewards of fidelity], and rejoice in the wife of your youth. 19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant doe [tender, gentle, attractive]—let her bosom satisfy you at all times, and always be transported with delight in her love. (Amplified Bible)
I am the richest man in the world because the Lord gave Donna to me – and me to her! How do I begin to describe the delight and wonder of getting to spend my life with this wonderful woman – truly a daughter of the King. Her smile – her voice – her touch – her laughter – her kindness – her love for the Lord – her passion – her tenderness – her love for me. Oh my!!!!
I get to treasure her – I get to be with her – I get to hold her – I get to bless her – I get to rejoice in her – I get to thank God for her – I get to help her accomplish her dreams – I get to spend my life loving her and thanking God for her. She is God’s gift to me that He uses to enable me to love Him more. The more I love her, the more I love Him.
She passionately loves the Lord. Her tender heart is so apparent as she prays and is touched by others and God’s Spirit. I find myself frequently asking God to make me more like her. She truly delights in Him.
Today is her birthday. I just wanted to rejoice and celebrate the blessing I have in this delightful woman – my wife of almost 49 years.
