05 Sep Guest Post: My Dear Husband
I had to save the best guest post for last. Don’t get me wrong, Shay, Charity and Amanda it was such a blessing to have each of you share your heart, but my sweet husband, Colby, is posting for us today! We have always talked about him writing on the blog and trust me He is a better writer than I am, so I’m excited it is finally happening!. I had no idea what He was going to write about and just read this last night (brought me to tears), but based on what He said it sounds like He will be writing more in the future. Thanks for allowing Him to share His thoughts on here too! We will consider this his intro post with more to come 🙂
It’s an honor today to share in what my wife has created out of our desire to start a family. I’m incredibly proud of her ability to transform our journey into a place of hope and encouragement for others who are waiting to start their family. Her maturity and growing faith and trust have been a joy and a delight to witness – I’m blessed to be united with her as we walk together through this season of life.
From day one there have been challenges and emotions that have have tested our character and faith. Times of sadness and questioning have proven to be temporary – not debilitating. We rejoice in a God and a marriage that are overwhelmingly satisfying. Our desire for children is a good and healthy thing, not a consuming source of pain and despair. And after we become parents, our relationship with God and our marriage will still be our greatest treasures and priorities.
I’m thankful for the great wisdom The Lord has given to my beautiful wife in seeking Him and in seeking the blessing of a child. Her capacity for love and peace have overflowed our home and have touched the lives of numerous other couples in need of the truth and encouragement found in the work of Jesus. He is our savior and our healer, and the very source of all our hope. He is our strength in this challenging time, and the glory will be His in the victory of a naturally conceived child!
I will try to add my perspectives and experiences more in the future, and in the meantime will support and inspire this gifted writer and future mother. I’m praying for all the readers who have followed our story, and look forward to sharing God’s amazing work in all of our lives!
