21 Years!

My husband and I will celebrate our 21 year anniversary on Tuesday, March 27.
I was looking through our pictures and I said to myself, “Why don’t I start celebrating my anniversary tonight?”

Why not, right?
Yes! May the name of Jesus Christ be praised forever!
My husband and I made it this far by the grace and mercy of God!
I said to my husband yesterday, “Thank you for not divorcing me!”
I am serious! My husband deserves lots of thank yous! Early on in our marriage, my Berhan, my husband, put up with lots of my childish, “I will go back to Ethiopia,” rants every time something didn’t feel right to me.
What if he had said to one of those rants, “Oh, okay. Here is your plane ticket and here is your luggage. Bye! Adios! I am done with you!”
Oh, my, even thinking about the possibility of that terrorizes me.
I am eternally thankful that this handsome man is mine. He is a real man! He is a godly man who knows how to make his woman submit to him, to subject herself to his leadership.
In case you wonder how he does it, here: He always strives to put himself under the leadership of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 11:3). And Jesus teaches him how to love His daughter, me. So, he loves me the way I always want to be loved, treasured, cherished and protected by him.
Yeah, that is why I keep finding myself falling in love with this man. You have no idea how thankful I am of this man.
Happy anniversary my hunny-bunny! ///
