Love my teammate

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.
For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.
Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?
And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.

(King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 4)

Being in this crazy life together has made everything we’ve gone through this last year all worth it. I can’t imagine a better partner to share in life’s joys and sorrows. God gave me this amazing “team mate” with whom to journey through life. Two are better than one. Evan encourages me, believes in me, and loves me — even when I’m not the best version of myself. I am continually blessed by his love for God and his love for me. I am blessed by how he seeks the best for me and how he guides our family. It’s a blessing to be called his wife.

With all of this, the thought that I’m struck with is this: if this is the love that my husband has for me, I can’t even comprehend the love of Christ for His bride.

But, it’s nice to have an approximation.
