Prov.18.22 says, "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD."
I love this. Every time I read this verse I think of Debbie, the wife of my youth. I love that fact that after 33 years of marriage our love and intimacy is only increasing. When the Lord led Debbie and me together in college, I certainly found what is good and have enjoyed the favor from the Lord in an excellent wife. My life, my marriage, my family and ministry is blessed today because of this incredible woman of noble character. She is indeed my crown. (Prov. 12:4 A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown...Prov. 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.)
