This Little Wife of Mine, I’m Gonna Let Her Shine

I’ve had this post on my mind for awhile now…

And today I finally got the picture to go with it.

Selfies with the wife are hard to come by when one of us is always holding or entertaining one of the littles…

Okay Matt…get to the point…

So most of you know already that I’m not shy about telling the world that I love my wife.

Here’s a big part of the reason why…

Recently I connected with someone who expressed some sincere interest in my story and more specifically, my book.

As I shared some of the details, this individual curiously asked if my wife had supported me in following this call to write and share, very transparently, my journey in mental health and faith…

I responded immediately with 100%. Why wouldn’t she?

And then it hit me…this is actually a legitimate question for many…

But it’s one that I’ve never had to be concerned with in my marriage.

My wife has always had my back.

And I guess, by the standards of most, that’s not a small ask…

Look, we’ve done some crazy stuff…

A South Florida ocean sunrise elopement…that ruffled a few feathers!

6 moves in 9 years…so long comfort zone!

3 kiddos in 49 months…blessings in bunches!

So is it really any surprise that we went 10 months in the middle of a pandemic with two kids and no income chasing a book project inspired by God? Confronting the devil?!

The answer is no.

We will continue to do that.

In fact, don’t be surprised if we turn it up a notch or two…

Because we have each other’s backs, and we are “crazy” enough by the standards of this world to do what doesn’t make ANY sense to our friends and family for the sake of what we believe God is calling us to pursue…for each other, for our children and most importantly, for Him.

I love my wife because she loves and trusts God enough to go (with me) wherever He leads us…no hesitation.

She trusts me, because I trust Him. And that feeling is mutual. It’s the foundation of our marriage.

I am so grateful that God gave me this woman…

Listen, I have nothing figured out. No five year plan. I mean I’ll be honest I rarely have a five day plan…

And that’s actually quite intentional, as “crazy” (seeing a pattern here?) as that sounds…

It’s intentional, because I don’t want to lead, I want the Holy Spirit to show me the way, 24 hours at a time.

And this little wife of mine (like what I did there 😉) well she just lets it SHINE…

There is no panic. No worry. She just gets up every day, grinds as a mama and rides with me…

And we figure it out, because He does the work.

Man I love that about us…

And I love her. She’s special, y’all.

Thank you, Jesus 🙏
