This last weekend I was bach'n it at home while my wife was visiting friends out of town. A year ago, this would've meant a weekend of excessive junk-food, sports-TV, & chillin' with the boys. This time, however, my weekend of going to the movies with friends, celebrating a buddy's birthday, preparing for church, worshiping in the service, preaching, & driving around without my wife by my side felt really, really sad. I missed her like crazy!!! Not because she was gone so long or because I've become codependent... but because tons of life was happening all around me & she wasn't there to live it with me. That's team!
I love my wife for many reasons; but now more than ever I love her because she is my teammate! "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains blessing from the Lord" (Proverbs 18:22). AMEN!!!
