Ten years ago today, I married my dearest friend. James, I am thankful that you're my husband. You have loved me well. You have loved me when God's love seemed elusive to me. You have stood by me on some very dark days. You have served me and cared for me when I was sick. You have shared in my joy, suffering, laughter, and grief. You have prayed for me when I was so spent spiritually that I could not pray myself. You have guided me, encouraged me, lovingly rebuked me, and you've had a hand in my sanctification. You are my husband and my brother in Christ. You have stirred my affections for my First Love, Love Himself. You have been Christ to me. May God help me remember that before you were mine, you were Christ's, and one day, we will be united with the rest of the body of Christ to our Bridegroom.
