On Mother’s Day…


Proverbs 12:4 (NKJV)
4  An excellent wife is the crown of her husband….

I have been fortunate in my selection of a wife, because she makes me proud in so many ways.  She is the prototype mother, raising two boys and two girls in fine fashion.  They may say they wished some things were different, but that is what free-will is about.

But I cannot really take much credit for my selection…you see I prayed for the right wife since age 12!  God knew who I needed and knew who she needed and placed us together.

I wanted to pay her tribute on this Mother’s Day, because we have been married over 46 years, and you never know how much time you have left.  I don’t mean to be macabre, but you never want to leave anything unsaid.  I love Joyce and she is “the crown of her husband..”; ME!

My prayer for my self today is, “Thank you, Lord, for my special wife.”  Enough said!

  1. Great tribute!!. Believe or not I had to apologize yesterday for hurting my wife. I am blessed!!! We are blessed–the relationships, the Lord, and all of it.

  2. I love the fact that you prayed for your wife at age 12. I am sharing this with my daughter who is having her 7 year old son praying to God for the right wife for him too. She thought it was a bit too young . . . but I don’t think so and you are proof that He will bring to you just the person you need.!
