Smile, My Darling
“A Love Letter to My Wife”
God gave me a way out of sin. He did it with a smile, because if He wasn’t smiling it would have been done grudgingly, and God doesn’t work that way. He only works through love. He smiled on me.
I was in His heart all the time. He sent a part of Himself (His Son) to pay for my sins. His love for that Son is beyond compare and yet ... He loved me so much that He gave His Son to pay for my sins. He always gives me His best and does it with a smile. You see, I am special to Him.
When I was born, God gave me my first breath. I bonded with Him through my mother. I know because the look of love in her eyes could only be given by God. He smiled when He gave me the parents that He gave me. Although they weren’t perfect, they were perfect for me because of Him. And I thank the Lord Jesus for the two little sisters that He gave me because He smiled on me again. I have seen that same look in your eyes, my love, and it is a look of love that only the Father could give. Again He smiled.
He smiled when He gave me sight to see my way to Him. He smiled when He made me hear His words of love to me. I thank our Father for the love He shows me. He is always with me and gently holding my hand. I feel the soft, loving caress of His Holy Spirit, the soft whisper to my heart that says, “I love you,” then He smiles. I thank Him for the Son that He so freely gave for me. I thank Jesus for being so willing to give Himself for me. He saved me from a life of eternal torment. He is my Lord, and I am grateful for Him. Jesus is my dearest love. He is the only one who could save me from the clutches of satan. I always get His best and He smiles on me.
Now for the greatest blessing, next to His own Son, that He ever gave me. He so carefully picked you for me, my dear, my wife, and He smiled on me again. He picked the perfect woman for me. I thank Him for you, my love, and because of you I smile back at Him. I thank you, my precious wife, for the children that you gave me, through Him, that made me smile. He smiled on me again. I thank Him for bonding with my children just as He did with me. He did it through the mother that gave them life, He did it through you, my wife. You see, God knows how important you are to me. I love you. He smiled on me again.
Sweetheart, when God blessed me and brought us together as one the heavens shook and rumbled. God jumped for joy and shouted, "Hallelujah," and all the angels in heaven jumped and shouted with Him. My dear, you may have felt it because, you see, my heart jumped with them. Glory, Glory, the Father loves me, and He smiles.
I know that when I smile it is because of Jesus. He gave me you, and you are that burst of joy in my heart that makes me smile. You are that laugh that I can’t hold back when I hear you whisper I love you. You will be that joy in my heart forever.
Thank You for my wife, Lord Jesus. I smile back at You.
Sweetheart, I pray that I can some day be worthy of the love you have given me. You see I not only love you but am still very much in love with you. I feel the same every day as I did the day I asked you to be mine and you said yes. He smiled on me then.
Thank You, Father, for the girl you chose for me those many years ago. Thank you for the family that You gave me through this great woman. I love her, Lord. She is second only to You. I thank You, Jesus, for giving her the same opportunity that You gave me. You went to the cross for her also. You put us together and said “What God puts together, let no man put apart,” and then You smiled.
Now, my love, it is time that we both count our blessings and smile for God. You, because He made you who you are; and me, because He made you my wife. You raised my children, kept my home, and stayed with me through all that satan could throw at me. You brought Jesus into our home long before I turned to Him, and you are the reason that I did accept Him. Thank you for showing me the way to the greatest gift of all, Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
The most important Man of all loves you, honey. He looks down on you every minute of every day and smiles, and when He does, He also smiles on me. He always gives us His best; and when He gave you to me He truly gave me the best.
Thank you for the privilege of being Your Husband.
