Sometimes I Love My Wife

From Brent

I love my wife.

Sometimes I love her because it's a just a fact of my life. Something that is true by default.

Sometimes I love her because she does something sweet for me.

Sometimes I love her because she overlooks my stupidity or hypocrisy.

Sometimes I love her because I realize I never have to worry about her faithfulness and commitment to our marriage and family.

Sometimes I love her because I see how much she loves the kids.

Sometimes I love her because she gets this special look on her face that lets me know she is proud of who I am.

Sometimes I love her because I'm studying my Bible and come across verses that speak of a Christian man's privilege to love his Bride.

Sometimes I love her because she says something so funny that she makes herself cry which makes us laugh even harder which makes her cry harder which makes us laugh harder...

Sometimes I love her because I'm talking to another man about her and I realize what a wonderful wife I have described.

Sometimes I love her because she overlooks my too-frequent faults.

Sometimes I love her because she rarely goes more than a few minutes before making peace if thing are a little rough between us.

Sometimes I love my wife because I'm away from her for little while and it hits me how much I love her.

Sometimes I love my wife when I'm listening to heartbreaking stories from bad marriages and realize how blessed I am to have her.

Sometimes I love my wife because of her relentless care for our children.

Sometimes I love my wife because she "gets" me.

Sometimes I love my wife because she lets me win a domino game once in a while.

Sometimes I love my wife because she loves me first.

Sometimes I love my wife because I'm feeling all syrupy and emotional about her (like now).

I guess if you put all those "sometimes" together, it adds up to the fact that I love my wife every minute of every day... more and more every day.

Yep, that sounds about right.

Good morning sweetheart... I love you.

Aloha Brent, it's good to see a significant other appreciate the other person in your life.

Recognizing, admiring and just expressing of all those encouraging words, you blessed your wife with. That's what makes two people happy as one.

Very sweet and honoring words. You have found a huge key to a happy relationship: always seek and proclaim the good of the other, pray for eachother and be comitted to eachother.
