My husband gets me!
On the morning of our wedding, he sent someone with a handwritten letter to me (he knew how much I like his hand written letters). He also allowed my crazy idea of me singing as I walked down the aisle toward him, and he joined in and sung with me, not caring how un-bridal that’d be.
It’s been 13 years of a growing friendship, 11 of a committed relationship and nearly 9 of a covenant marriage. And he really gets me with each passing year.
Interestingly, the more years he’s been with me, the more he seems to express his love in meaningful ways. I feel more valued.
I remember a time two years ago when I teased him on how it had been awhile since he wrote me a note and how I thought he’d lost his romantic edge. That week while at work, on a random afternoon, I received a package with the most lovely cupcakes, and underneath each cupcake was a sticky note with a reason why he loved me; hand written. He won!
You get the point… I have an amazing friend for a husband ☺️
It’s as though the more He knows me, the better able he is to love me.
Because I know I am loved, I am myself completely when I am with Jeremy. There’s no need to pretend. He’s seen it all…
Now, much as I am cherished by this man, I have found that there are places in my soul he could never reach, wounds he can’t heal, thoughts he can’t respond to or ever know, stories he must wait for me to share, and secrets I don’t even know I’ve kept; but there’s someone who KNOWS me better than I know myself.
He knows me COMPLETELY and loves me INTENSELY! It’s as if BECAUSE He knows me perfectly, He loves me perfectly! There’s nothing I can hide from Him – there’s no need. He loves me perfectly!
Unlike my husband’s love that’s limited to me, God’s love is available to us all. It’s so freeing to know that we are known exactly as we are, and loved perfectly.
This knowledge brings freedom, joy and peace!
You are perfectly known. You are perfectly loved!
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” NKJV
