Thanks Mima, now I understand what you meant. :)
---Mary on 12/19/09|
Mary, no I'm not implying that a mother has no right to give their child money.
This was just as saying that my mother used many times to tell me that God would give me a good wife. And now some 50 years after my marriage I am certain the little saying is true.
Also here is the correct saying--
Your father can give you money
but only God can give you a good wife.
---mima on 12/17/09|
I just have to ask, Mima, what do you mean by "only your father can give you money"? Surely you're not implying a mother has no right to give her child money are you? I hope I misunderstood so please correct me if I did lol, thanks :)
---Mary on 12/15/09|
Only your father can give you money.
My father did give me money.
Only God can you be the good wife.
God did give me a good wife.
And I'm very thankful for the above.

Amen AlwaysOn a blessing indeed your husband is a wonderful man
I am blessed with a husband who is thoughtful and kind. Our marriage is blessed in many ways because of my husband's loyalty and devotion to us being a team. He works hard has two businesses employ's many people and gives back to the community yet still finds time for me the kids, kids we "adopted" (his sisters kids and my sons friend whose parents kicked him out when he turned 18) and the houseful of our childrens friends who spend a lot of time in our home. I'm so thankful for this amazing man and I never forget to tell him every day how appreciative I am with all he does and is to me our children families and extended kids!

God is #1 in his life, he's a very cool dude, he's got a great sense of humor and is a natural comedian, he's a protector, he's a great father, he's handsome and keeps himself fit, he's resourceful, he's eager to help others, he's got a genius business mind, he's incredibly wise, he's an excellent provider who takes full financial responsibility for our household, he's a great cook (and LOVES to cook), he loves my side of the family as much as his own, he likes to surprise me with gifts, he does the majority of the grocery shopping, he has a very strong sense of integrity, he's a visionary who thinks outside of the box, he is a charismatic leader, he believes he can do anything, he has forsaken all others and chosen to spend his life with me.

Kella, I know you are not around by now since I have not seen your name posted but here is my story.
My wife is my biggest support not only in Scripture, but also in my everyday life. She is very caring, never forgets to show her love, is willing to listen, and her manners have changed a lot since I met her. Before she was very defensive and I always thought it was because she was a single mom and because she was short. Now she only gets angry when someone cuts in front of her, then she wants to catch them and tell them how she feels. I have to tell her, let it go. That is the only time I see her get angry. All other times she is the most wonderful person anyone has met. I love her so much and thank God for putting her in my path of life.
---MarkV. on 12/10/09|
Apart from God, she is the greatest support I've ever had. She is a mother of my children (adults now) and she keeps the family together. It's hard for me to imagine my life without her.
Oh, I forgot: she takes care of our financial matters too, and quite effectively! :-)

Ever since our marriage we have worked as a team.(When a Youth & Education Director, all the girls would go to her for counseling and some of the guys too.) In 1973 we founded our own medical mission in Puerto Rico. (She is an Registered Nurse, certified in In-patient OB care, an ex-certified Nurse mid-wife and a Cerified Childbirth Education Specialist.) We gave prenatal classes for evangelism. I did all the non-medical work, fund raising and promotion. Neither one of us would have had any success alone, but as a team we had to largest prenatal work in Puerto Rico, and she was certified by the PR government to give CEU's to other nurses. We have been married for 45 years, and the honeymoon is not over yet.

my DH of 18 years loves me unconditionally, he's always made sure the kids and I had our needs met, and he's very creative.

I hope to hear more here...

Ok girls...I am thankful and appreciative of my Husband of 4 years because...He does laundry :), cooks, cleans...and even cleans bathrooms...and "babysits" our children! AND...he loves Jesus! He has given me 3 beautiful children as well! He was well worth the wait! :)
---iloveHim on 5/9/08|
I love my husband. I love him for who he is. I love the little things that amuse me and the bigger ones that let me know how much he loves me. I am very blessed. That is not to say he never drives me crazy or we always agree-no, we love eachother because love is more than a feeling. I love that he is a Christian and has a moral/spiritual life compass. I respect him more because of it.
---Kella3336 on 5/5/08|
Thank you Frances, that's kind of you to say.
---NVBarbara on 5/2/08|
You aren't that bad, NVBarbara. (:-))
---frances008 on 5/2/08|
Steve is a honey, anyone of you who knows me knows he'd have to be! He loves Jesus with all his heart and he loves me unconditionally, and that love is returned. He was 60 when we married, he'd never been married. He says he was waiting for me. We married 5 years ago and he's as sweet and caring, if not more so than he was at the start. I have TRULY been blessed with a dear spouse! I was married at 18 to an abusive man, that lasted for 11 years. I was gun shy for a LONG time, happy God has blessed me so!

Alan, I also had work-induced depression for a few months. It was a horrible experience. My sympathies to you. I got out of the situation, but for a while was deeply depressed even after escaping the situation. Just shows how Satan is after good people. (I hope I am good.)
---frances008 on 5/1/08|
Alan, I'm sure your dear wife would say the same thing about you. I'm sure she had a loving and supportive husband.
May she rest in peace and may your daughters grow up to be like their wonderful Mom.
---Caring on 5/1/08|
I was married for 33 super years.
We shared everything, from the exciting to the humdrum, the bringing up of 4 daughters & the interrupted nights.
Through several years of work-induced deep depression she was my rock.
She showed grace and joy right through the 18 monhs of her finaal illness, and left us with marvellous memories

My husband lets me know that he thinks I am beautiful while supporting me as I lose weight. He tells me every day that he loves me. My husband is my best friend. He listens to me in happy times and sad. I am very blessed:-)
---Kella3336 on 4/30/08|
I look forward to hearing more. I am very glad I started this blog. I hope many are encouraged. God bless and have a wonderful day!:-)
---Kella3336 on 4/30/08|
Hi y'all, I just wanted to say thanks, personally, to kella, for starting this blog and to the ones who've responded to it, because it's encouraging to know that happy marriages can exist! I am undergoing counseling and pretty much scared of most men but I desire to change. Guess some marriages really ARE good :)

My wife is the only person who can put up with me" when i am going mach 3" my favorite Quote of Hers is " Look Mike here is the deal your job is to teach Gods word and minister. ok, NOW it is my Job as your wife to keep you from killing yourself while doing you job!"
---willow on 4/28/08|
He is almost always upbeat and happy and rarely grumpy. Yes, sometimes the joking gets on my nerves! LOL He lives for Jesus 24/7. He got on fire for the Lord when he got saved years ago and the fire has never gone out. He lives what he preaches.
---KarenD on 4/28/08|
He tries his best to be a decent guy. He does not mind untidiness. He works hard. He puts the bins out. Etc. Oh, he keeps the Ten Commandments and 'Love thy neighbour'.
---frances008 on 4/28/08|
God has really blessed me with a wonderful husband. I don't know what I would do without him. We have been through some tough storms but God has always made a way of escaping. He has been with me all through my 9 surgeries within 2 years. Not many people will stay with their spouse once they find out they have health problems. God called him to preach 2 years ago, and I am so proud that we both are doing what God has called us to do. Such a blessing.
---Rebecca_D on 4/28/08|
I appreciate my spouse for the person God made him. He is a man of many facets. He is generous,kind,hard-working,loyal and he loves me.He has been a good father and spouse to me.He is very secure within himself and does not run behind everything that shake their tail in his face.He married for all the right reasons. I am thankful for him. I often wonder what I have ever done to deserve such a prince of a guy.
---Robyn on 4/28/08|
My wife doesn't always understand me, but I can tell she tries.
She's fiercely loyal and she's the half that really loves to laugh.
She gives me adoration often and a hard time at least once a day, and this helps to keep me from taking things (and myself) too seriously.
Her name is Jennifer (white wave) and I am Peter (the rock) she crashes against.
I wouldn't trade her if she was killing me, so what's a little erosion to smooth out rough edges?
---pharisee on 4/28/08|
My wife is the most precious gift God has given me beside His Son. She is my perfect help meet. She has taught me so much about God's love. She is a Prov.31 woman, she takes God's Word over all other authorities and she follows me as I follow God. We are completely open and honest with one another without fear. She does not conform to the culture but chooses to be a Godly wife and mother. She is a wonderful example for our two young daughters. We've been married for 10 years now and I'm blessed every day.
---righteouswarriors on 4/28/08|
Ones I *would* marry are beautiful and lovable > they help me to be positive, and they are caring about people, even merciful to ones who have hurt them. If they turn on me for the wrong reason, they are still enough with God so they can get back with Him and then with me. But I'm maybe too quiet and unambitious and unclear with God, to be a really Christian lady's' "head" (Ephesians 5:23). But I thank You that I know such ladies (o:
