My lover’s name means “Gift of God.”

Goodness, I could not agree more. In the nearly 2 months since we vowed our lives before God and man, he has been an incredible gift. He soothes and calms me. He calls and claims me. He corrects and rebukes me. All with patience. All with love.

As he dozes beside me on our new couch *squeal* and I listen to his steady breathing, I am thankful. Thankful that the Lord of the universe, so incredibly holy and yet so personal, continues to gift me. I deserve no thing. No single thing. Yet, I have many.

Praise God, from whom all blessing flow. His love for me, evident in his love for me, overwhelms my soul. God bless.
