The other side of me

"Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust..."
Psalm 40:4

"...a prudent man gives thought to his steps."
Proverbs 14:15

"Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord."
Proverbs 16:20

"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life,
to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders..."
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

I came across these scriptures this morning. And I thought of my husband.

He trusts the Lord.
He thinks carefully and seeks the Lord's wisdom about each decision.
He listens to and respects the opinions of others (much better than I do - I'm learning).
And he fulfills his purpose. Well. He works hard, in everything.
He's not loud and crazy. We don't go out every night and aren't doing all kinds of random things.
But he loves me with his whole heart.
And he trusts the Lord.
And he is respected. What a blessing to be married to a man who is respected by others.

I am so blessed that John is the other side of me.
