Not very often in this vain world would you stumble upon an angel in human likeness. So, on the occasion that it does happen, it is prudent to be thankful for such an amazing gift. About 11 years ago, God brought an angel my way. I did not think I was one who needed saving, but the Lord knew me best, and indeed I was. God brought Gathoni to me, when I was still trying to figure out my purpose and find a meaning to all the madness that is this life. She saved me, and brought light & love to a cold word and a darkening heart.
So, this post is just to celebrate this amazing woman, daughter of the King, mother of 3 and queen of my heart. I am humbled and honoured to get to share a life with you, Gathoni & see all the things that God is making you to be. May you never let that light dim, may you let it shine that the world may see it and give glory to our father who is in heaven. Thank you for lighting up this world! You are the very personification of Prov 12:4.
‘An excellent wife, is her husband’s crown’
I want to dedicate the next few verses to my Gathoni and to all the amazing women, wives & mothers out there. You are all truly angels from up on high!
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. (Prov 18:22)
“House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord.” (Prov 19:14)
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. (1st Peter 3:4)
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. (Prov 31:10-12)
To end this short post, allow me to share a prayer to us husbands, whom God has entrusted to our care these angels. As commanded in Ephesians 5 that we are to “..Love our wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for hersake”
Lord, thank you for the gift of my beautiful wife
Thank you for entrusting me with someone so precious to you
Help me Lord to love her, and be faithful to her
Show me & teach me everyday how to care for her
To put her interest before my own & serve her selflessly
Help me to truly listen to her, before I offer her a solution
Teach me to die daily & lay down my life everyday for her sake
Help me to love my wife Lord, as you loved the church
