On our wedding day nearly four and a half years ago, Mason stood at the altar and sang the old song, "The Best Is Yet To Come" to me. It was easily my favorite part of our ceremony. I have clung to the hope that the best is truly yet to come through the hard times and the good times alike and will continue to do so.
I have been reading so many posts from wives losing their husbands. Those kill me to read. I physically feel pain for those who have lost a spouse. I have seen how losing a spouse has affected my grandparents. It breaks my heart in two and will send me into a cry-fest faster than a blink of the eye. My husband and I can drive each other crazy. We are the complete opposite in more ways than not and it causes friction but MAN I can't imagine living without him for one single second. To not have him at the other end of my cellphone or on the other side of the bed. To not see his clothes on the bathroom floor or his beard hairs in the sink. Each and every day is a blessing and I never want to forget that as long as I live.
That song has been on replay in my mind since we got married nearly four and a half years ago. Our hope is in Christ Jesus and I know the best is yet to come for our marriage in Christ.
When I feel like we are simply ships passing in the night; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
When difficult seasons threaten to pry us apart; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
When life seems to be going smoothly and we are enjoying time together; I will trust that even then the best is yet to come.
While we raise babies and pursue dreams together; I will trust
that the best is yet to come.
When sickness and loss and tragedy pierce our souls; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
When we experience painful growth and strive to meet the other persons needs; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
While we continue laughing and enjoying our life together; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
When we drive each other nuts because we are so starkly different but we can't stand the thought of losing each other; I will trust that the best is yet to come.
When the time comes for us to meet Jesus; I know that the very best is yet to come.
