My Dearest Jordan
My Dearest Jordan,
It has been the blessing of blessings to spend the last 10 years as your man, and the last four and a half years as your husband. You are, and will always be the delight of my eyes, and the only one who has my heart. I cannot imagine doing this life without you, and I am so glad that I don’t have to. I rejoice that I have been able to witness your love and godliness over the last decade. You are the example of what a godly woman should be.
My marriage to you serves to remind me daily that God is the giver of good things that I do not and could never deserve. You have always been an example to me of how to live a godly life and how to love as He loves. I cannot possibly communicate to you how important you have been in growing my relationship with God. God has used you to help me become more like Him. I have learned so much about Him and His love by watching you. Your life is for me a window into the Other World, a glimpse of what my relationship with God could look like. Your love and wisdom continually challenge me to pursue this life: the life of love that God has called me to live.
As we now celebrate the birth of our son, and we look forward to this new chapter in our lives that has only just begun, I am reminded that there is no better companion for this life than you, the one God has given me. There is no one better to be the mother of our son than you. There is no one better to be my wife than you. There is no one else I would learn parenting with than you. There is no one besides you that I trust God to use to make me the man, husband, and father that God has called me to be. You are truly the perfect wife, and you will be the perfect mother as well.
Even as you have only met our son a short time ago, your love for him from the womb until now has served as a tremendous blessing to me, and as an example which I strive to follow. You truly are to me a wonderful model of what it means to be a loving parent. I deeply desire to follow you in your love as you follow Christ. I am so proud of the way you have loved our son and the way you continue to love him. He could have no better mother now or in the future than you, my dearest Jordan.
In every chapter of our lives, I have been amazed by your grace and godliness, and in this chapter you have shown more of the same. You are an amazing woman of God, a wonderful wife, and a great mom. I can’t wait to watch you continue to grow in the grace, knowledge, and love of God, and to help you teach our child to do the same.
I love you Jordan. I am so thankful for you, for all you do, and for all you are.
