Merry Heart

I thank it, poor fool, it keeps on the windy side of care.

Last person     

Posted by Katherine Putnam on March 26th, 2012

“And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.”

Happy one year anniversary to us! Where did the year go? I don’t know the answer to that, so let’s focus instead on what I do know.

I know that I am incredibly lucky to have Chris as my husband.

I know that I do not praise God enough for bringing Chris into my life and blessing us with marriage.

I know that I often take Chris for granted. I pray that this would change and that I would learn to never let a day go by without telling him how much he means to me.

I know that the support, love, and wisdom of our friends and family has been–and will continue to be–invaluable.

I know that I do not deserve Chris’s patience, forgiveness, and love. How he puts up with my short temper, bad attitude, wavering self esteem, bossiness, laziness, senseless worrying, etc I’ll never know.

I know that I am blessed by his even temper, kindness, intelligence, sense of humor, encouragement, and love.

I know that I am thankful for the time he takes to proofread my blog posts and the creativity and work he puts into keeping the site beautiful and functional.

I know that I am grateful that we agree on our budget and hold each other accountable as we pursue financial responsibility and frugality.

I know that I look forward to working by his side as we seek God’s will for our future: jobs, children, housing, etc.

I know that I have a lot of growth left to do, but that Chris challenges me and supports me where I need it most.

I pray that God would continue to grow me–and our relationship–in the years to come. I pray that he would sustain us through trials, lead us not into temptation, draw us ever closer to him, and help us to be his salt and light in the world. I also pray that these reflections would not simply be words on paper (or a screen), but that they would be words written on my heart, that I would truly allow God to transform me.

Thank you, Lord, for this first year of marriage. Thank you, Chris, for marrying me. Happy anniversary to us.

    So sweet! I think it’s so important to affirm and honor our husbands in public and not just in the privacy of our homes. But it’s something I don’t do often enough. Thanks for setting a good example!
    Oh, and I like the new blog look.
