I Thank God For My Wife!

I thank God for giving me
The woman who is my wife;
And for her love for me
Which so wonderfully blessed my life.

God said, looking at His son,
"It's not good that he's alone:
So, I'll give him a companion;
A woman he can call his own”.

So, He brought this wonderful lady
To me to be my bride;
And from that blessed, beautiful day
She has remained by my side.

I never could have understood
How God a man can bless,
Had I not known the woman
Who brought such happiness!

Yes, God has blessed me so much
By giving me His beautiful daughter,
Who stepped into my lonely life
And changed my sadness to laughter.

She has changed so many things
That I thought could never change,
With her ever loving, caring ways
That so beautifully rearrange.

Well she changed my untidiness
And helped me realize,
The benefit of discipline
And learning to organize.

I used to be hot tempered
And would easily lose my head;
But she taught me to say sorry
Before I went to bed.

She has been just wonderful
As a wife and friend to me;
And such an amazing mother
To our children – we have three!

Each passing day brings love so sweet
And many a new surprise;
And to describe what she means to me
Words would not suffice:

So, I ask God for the grace for me
To be the husband she deserves,
And pray that as we grow in years
Our love He preserves.

Yes, I know I’ll always love her
For all the days of my life:
And I thank God for giving me
The woman who is my wife.

This is a poem I composed for Doris, who has been my Darling Wife for 19 years now and it was for her birthday which is on the 18th of January.

A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies. Proverbs 31:10
