I was walking back in to Starbucks after a bathroom break when I was greeted by this view. I felt my heart swell with gratitude and love all in an instant, and I just had to pause to contemplate how blessed I am. Not only did I marry my best friend, I had married a man who loved me as I am and whose deepest joy is that I find mine. He never stops encouraging me to fall deeper in love with Christ and his greatest wish for me is that I will complete the race and so become one with God.
Never in my life did I do anything to deserve such a gift. Henry is to me another incarnation of God’s love for me – an undeserved and unconditional blessing. I pray that I will never take him for granted.
