Song of Solomon 4:7
You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.
Today Cherie and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I have been in love with this girl since I was 15 years old and my love for her has only increased over the 26 years since. The one thing I know for certain is that, in many ways, she has been the best literal representation of Jesus to me. More than anyone I have ever known she walks with and like Jesus so consistently. She has also served both as my “holy spirit” and my “savior” on too many occasions to mention.
Over the years I have seen that she (though she would strongly disagree) is my physical, emotional and spiritual example of a perfect woman. The verse listed above has become something that I can say to her with complete integrity and authenticity. She, to me, is without flaw and that is because I know God made her specifically for me.
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.
No where in scripture does it say anything close to “She who finds a husband finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.” In reality – at least as far as I can tell – if there was a scripture that addressed this it would more likely read, “She who is burdened with a husband finds a bum and obtains a curse from the LORD.” Even though this would hold true for us, Cherie treats me like a king and always acts like I’m a gift to her… now THAT is amazing grace!
I, by God’s mercy, found a wife who by every measure is incredible and because of that I live with the greatest favor the Lord could ever show any person. I am so thankful for Cherie and for our 20 years of marriage… Every year gets better, more exciting and when I think it isn’t possible, I realize that I love her even more.
