I have asthma. Now, that in its self is not unusual, but as a deafblind person when I have an attack I wonder if anyone is paying attention. Then in my struggle I can feel my wife hands as they touch me and let me know that even in my struggle I'm not alone. Now I've been blessed to have been married to a beautiful Christian woman for 37 years. and in that time she has been my helpmate in all of our ups and downs. What is a wife? Well, my wife,Carol. is the blessing I was given by God in my youth. I'm not sure she would call me a blessing, but she's mine. Often I have people ask me how am I doing. I find myself looking to her and saying because of her love and support I'm fine. Together we face the world. So what lesson is God teaching me about trusting him. Yeah, I know your asking yourself where did that come from. I believe that God allows to know people who influence us to understand about his love for us. And for me, God has let me know what he's like through the actions of my wife. See, she really cares. As a teacher for 37 years in a classrom with elementary children I watched her struggle to reach each child. To teach them the way of hope amd excitement. As she raised our daughter she read with her and became her confidant. She is Kim's best friend as well as her mom. But then there's me. I guess I'm pretty trying, for I'm the one who bought a horse when we couldn't afford it, and the one who had to be convinced to go back to school to and finish my degree so I would settle down. She listended to my dreams and seldom told me they were not feasable. She is steadfast, strong, and loving. I've really challenged her.... but even then she has a calm steady touch that somehow just cuts through the mess and let me konw that she is here. To know her is to know the calm reassuring hand of God. Her gift to our marriage is to let me know that if my wife can love me in all the trouble I've caused her how much more can God love me.She and He give me a chance to get my breath.
