Wikipedia defines Wife as the following: A wife is a female partner in a continuing marital relationship. A wife may also be referred to as a spouse. The term continues to be applied to a woman who has separated from her husband and ceases to be applied to such a woman only when her marriage has come to an end following a legally recognised divorce or the death of her spouse. On the death of her husband, a wife is referred to as a widow, but not after she is divorced from her husband. Ridiculous! This could not be further away from what my wife has meant to me. It is a cold depressing description and has nothing to do with the love that has been given or the life that it touches. I have found the Bible adds a bit more clarity to the truth. “House and wealth are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the Lord.” (Proverbs 19:14) Or maybe this one “A truly good wife is the most precious treasure a man can find!” (Proverbs 31:9) Aaaaahhhhh that feels better, now we can begin.
365 days, 8,766 hrs, 525,600 minutes, 31,556,926 seconds have ticked by…. It’s been amazing!!! In that short time our life has grown so much. You have blessed me with a newborn son, Lincoln, became a new wife and have loved more fiercely that I could have hoped for. You are my better half, an clearly better than I deserve 🙂 two of my favorite phrases when edifying you. Your love has helped stiffen my spine, give clarity to my roll as a husband, lover, Father and leader of our family. You Inspire me to keep chasing dreams during the day where they have a chance to come to light. You have made it possible to keep chasing the “After” and live our “Why”. Your encouragement is the fuel that feeds the flame of my soul, and what a blessing it has been. You are an amazing partner in every possible way and the word Wife now has a new definition… Her name is Kate.
