Day Seventeen. Knowing is half the battle.

30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."  Proverbs 9:10

She asks if I'm a wise woman, if I open my mouth with wisdom (Proverbs 31:26).  This is definitely something that I have been working on.  However, I seem to work on it more outside of the home.  So clearly, I have more work to do.

Now, is The Husband a wise man?  You betcha.  Does he have a plan for our family?  The man has had a plan for his family before he even had a family.  He had an IRA at 17.  Heading into college, he focused on fields of study to put him in a career that would provide for a wife and children.

He has a plan for our family.  He has a sense of purpose. And I have a sense of total security with him for myself and my girls.

Husband, thank you for thinking of us before you even knew us.  Thank you for being a husband and father who puts his family's needs in front of his own. Thank you for being a man who asks for wisdom from God.  Right now, as I write this, I am overwhelmed with how blessed I am to have you.  I know being wise doesn't sound all that exciting, but I hope you know that it is plenty exciting to me!
