“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine…” Song of Solomon 6:3.
This week’s photo challenge by The Daily Post is to post an image of something that is beloved or dearly loved. I have been blessed with so many people and things that I love dearly, but when I saw this topic my mind immediately went to my husband. Not because of how much I love him, but because he makes me feel dearly loved. God truly broke the mold when He made my husband. Steven was 22 and I was 21 when we were married. We were so young and naïve but God knew that I needed him to help make me the person that I am today. He is so patient with me and so kind-hearted. He is quiet around most people but at home he is the goofiest person you will ever meet and I love that he saves that side of himself just for me to see. In 2015 we had our son and even though I didn’t think it was possible, I fell even more in love with him. He is the best daddy and it makes me want to be a better mama everyday. When our son was just a few months old we went through the toughest battle we had ever faced in our lives as individuals and as a couple. During that time we grew up and our faith grew strong. He was my rock like he always is. When I fell ill he was still strong. He had to be mama and daddy while I was in the hospital, and even though I was hard to deal with he did it with a level head and a smile on his face. He loves hard. He is stubborn. He is funny. He is hardworking. He is patient. He is faithful. He is humble. And even though he married a chronically ill woman, he has never once made me feel like a burden. He doesn’t let a day go by without telling me he loves me and that I am beautiful. I tease him with the verse, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22), but really it is me that has found a wonderful thing. If for some reason I ever forget how blessed and loved I am by God, I just look at my beloved and I am reassured. He is my greatest blessing.
P.S. He is really hot.
