16 years ago today......
16 years ago today I married the man of my dreams, my soul mate, my best friend, my better half, my help meet, my love, my everything. God has blessed me with an evenly yoked marriage. My husband is the head of our house, the spiritual leader of our family and I honor him today. I am so blessed to call him my husband. He has been a strong influence in my life, as we have been through many trials together. He has blessed me with 5 children and given me the opportunity to stay home and teach those children. He works so hard everyday to provide for us and he never complains. He has such a sweet and giving spirit at all times, he doesn't ask for much in life, just simple obedience from his children and love of his wife. So, today my dear husband, I honor you with a prayer from my heart and all I ask is that God hear my heartfelt prayer and grant you everything you deserve.
Dear Gracious Heavenly Father,
I thank you for the gift of marriage and the gift of unconditional love. You have granted me both things in a man that you created all for me. Before either of us came to be you knew we were meant to be together, evenly yoked according to your will. While I look at our past and see the sinners that we are, yet I see the mercy and love you have for us, your children. Lord, I thank you for saving us from the pit of death, saving us for each other and for granting us so many wonderful years together. Lord, I sit here in awe of your works...your wondrous power...your faithfulness to us through so many trials and I thank you for each of those trials. I praise you that we are where we are today only by Your grace! May You Lord, always be first in our marriage and in our lives.
Today Lord, I thank you for my help meet, for the love he has for me and the love I have for him. May our love continue to grow stronger everyday only by Your power. Lord give us the strength to continue the good work you have started in us. Lord, we trust You to guide our ways, give us wisdom, provide our every need and lead us where You would have us go. Thank you for the 16 years we have had together and may you bless our marriage for another 60 years, if it be your will. Help me Lord to always honor my husband...daily, not just today. Help me to always see what a blessing he is to me and make him feel special. Help me to not burden him with trivial and meaningless tasks, but lighten his load as he provides for our family.
Thank you for our 5 Earthly blessed children and our blessed child in your care, may you guide our ways always and forever. May the life and marriage that we continue to live only bring Glory to your precious name. For it is in Jesus' name that I pray, AMEN.
Dearest Husband, I offer this prayer as a gift to you, for you are the best gift, a gift from God, which I am truly thankful for! I love you more today than the day we married. May God continue to grow our love. Your Bride, Kassandra
