Husbands Love Your Wives

I find myself cast into yet another role, writer of today’s blog.

This is totally out of my comfort zone, but loving my wife is not.

I’m reminded of what God’s word tells us in Ephesians; “ Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church, (all of us) and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word….”

So I march forward for her.

Linda is not feeling well today.

She has a new symptom, pain in her abdomen.
 This pain is not associated with the cramping she was having before but it is bothersome enough that she can’t get her thoughts together to write.

 I on the other hand can only think of her, and pray for God’s healing hands upon her.

We went to her doctor’s appointment today and both of them were in agreement to stop her treatments until next Tuesday.

This will give her a little time to recuperate and then finish up.

 This in no way will affect her treatment plan, and will not pose any danger with the cancer cells already treated.

It’s just a break from the side effects.

To all who are reading this Blog, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for your prayers and encouragements for me and my precious wife.

 Hopefully she will be back in front of the key board tomorrow.

May God Bless each and every one of you.

The Husband

    Love you...
