Words he once wrote: “Darling, Today is a new day, a day that belongs to the Lord. I am a blessed man - because of your love, I know our Father loves me. Whatever becomes of us, whatever may happen; know this that we serve a Creator that only knows love and chastisement for his children. May our hearts burst because of this truth!”
When he wrote that letter a few months after we wed, we never could’ve imagined the weight those words held or this being our reality. But it’s a funny thing - even now, in his wandering, his words still encourage me and point me to the Lord. They give me hope because I do serve a Father who knows love and chastisement for his children, for me. Through the pain I have seen this love in a beautiful way. And even though that “whatever” has happened, I will not soon forget our Father’s love for me.
