Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. EPHESIANS 3:20
Many years following the collapse of my first marriage, I can recall asking God for another chance to experience love before I left this earth. It was many years later that my prayer was answered by receiving the gift of a dedicated husband. This year when I was diagnosed with end stage osteoarthritis in both knees, my devoted husband has lovingly taken on an additional role as my caregiver. Although, I am fully functional with my personal activites of daily living; there are times when my ambulation is limited due to stiffness and severe pain. I now utilize an assistive device for additional support when walking.
Throughout my gradual decline, my husband provides for my every need. God was fully aware of the future decline in my physical condition when I prayed for love. He answered my prayer by giving me a husband that would love and care for me unconditionally. I can truly say that God has shown His love exceedingly and abundantly above all that I could ever imagine. He planned for my future when I was in excellent health. My simple desire led to a heartfelt prayer that resulted in my gift of a wonderful husband.
I pray that I will always submit my desires, my plans, and my life to God. He is the authority on guiding and resolving every obstacle or situation that I face. Thank you God for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for protecting me from all hurt, harm, and danger from birth through the present; and thank you for giving me the love of my life.
Dedicated to my husband-Angel-te quiero mucho.
