My husband and I just shared our 12th anniversary together and wow has it just zipped by. It amazes me at how much I like being married. I am giggling out loud because had you heard me a few years before I met my perspective husband, marriage was the last thing on my mind. I was a true believer of “independence” since no one could let me down but me, myself and I.

I didn’t really have a close walk with my heavenly Father either. I merely believed Him to exist and lived in fear I’d miss out on a fun life if I had to follow those rules I’d heard about here and there called the “10 commandments”.

My husband never preached at me nor did he really speak much about his deep faith in our early years together. No, he was much more subtle. He loved me “no matter” and unconditionally. I used to tell people, “he makes me want to be a better person.” I had no idea why.

Now as I look back at our years together I am so intrigued by the wise way my heavenly Father drew me to Him. It was to send a man without a bible in his hand but complete and total love in his heart. My husband’s non-hypocritical walk with the Lord has always been simple. Treat everyone with respect, love people even when you don’t want to and help those in need even if they don’t deserve it. These actions were what finally made me realize it wasn’t the man who made me want to be a better person, it was Jesus in the man.
