Last week, I received another letter from my husband. He sent a family devotional for our son and I to do.
There was a letter for my son about what life is like there.
The travelling tic tac toe game came back.
Then there was a letter for me.
I sat down on the couch to read. At the end he wrote,
“My covering and God’s covering are over you.”
I sat there staring at the page as tears filled my eyes.
I read it again and again.
He has never said such a thing to me before.
THIS is what I prayed for year after year.
A husband that loves me and that wants to be a godly husband to me.
Little did I know the road that we would travel to reach this point. I am still not exactly able to glibly say “Oh it’s all worth it.” Not yet. Things still hurt and our wounds still ooze.
However, I know that whatever God does to conform us to his image will be worth it in the end.
My husband’s covering is over me. What a blessed thought.
