As she has been gone this whole week, I have missed her greatly. I have thought of her almost every other thought. As you constant readers know, Kerrie is not your typical girl. (I would say "woman", but she says she feels old when I say that.) And you know about her heart for missions and her love for God, because her posts scream it. But what I wanted to really verify is her...genuineness. In other words, she is what she blogs. I am addicted to reading her post and looking at her comments, because I have this huge urge for people to know this woman. Why? Simply because her heart is genuine and it is RARE, and I want as many people as possible to get the blessing that I enjoy everyday. A heart like hers can change people! It has me! This blog is just one of her many ministries, and they are ALL powered by her love for Jesus.
I could write pages upon pages about how awesome my wife is, or about how much I love her. But Kerrie is probably already embarrassed(angry) enough by me posting this, so I will leave you with an excerpt from my journal, written not long ago:
"I thought about marriage all weekend, and I praised God for the awesome marriage He blessed me with. I learn so much through my marriage...more so than any other aspect of my life. I wonder deeply if I even come close to loving my wife as Christ loved the church (Eph 5). I do know I love her more than anything in this world and would give my life for her without hesitation....so that has to come close...right? I also started wondering if Christ looks at me the way I often stare at Kerrie, in amazement. Does He desire to just be with me as I do her? Do I take his breath away as she does mine?...that's hard to believe...but is it not so? So hard to imagine the God of the universe desires and loves me like I love my wife. Am I a worthy bride?"
I'm a blessed man.
