I met Robert 17 years ago thru, believe it or not, a dating service. We had coffee at a Tim Horton shop in Ottawa. We were both surprised by our shared values and our life experiences. All went just as one would expect two people with complex PTSD would, very guarded. Then the Lord stepped in! We went to hold hands for the first time when it happened. A surge of electricity went thru both of us and we knew. We were joined together by God in that moment. Neither of us have ever regretted it, our lives were changed. Robert promised to take care of me that day and he has never let me down.
We have been thru a lot since then. Robert’s back issues from a work related injury (he was a public transit driver), I had a psychic break as a result of prescription interaction that lasted 3 years, various betrayals and set-backs by other so-called friends, Robert was beaten by a gang of young men on his bus in 2017 ( that broke him) and then after all of this, Robert came to know Christ about a year ago.
Thru all this one thing was constant. Robert kept his promise to take care of me. If you have read my other posts you will understand. There was a huge learning curve to that. When he came to Christ, the Lord helped him to know the how and why of that care. I would say simply our lives were transformed. Gone was the confusion, the rage against the world and the lack of confidence
My husband is now a godly man. He is wise, compassionate and truly loving towards everyone. He loves the Lord with his whole heart and he takes care of each person God sends him. He is very humble and he is always hospitable (he loves to prepare turkey dinners for people)
I cannot express the depth of love I have for my husband. It truly has gotten better with every passing year. He is my best friend, my caregiver, my confidant and my disciplarian. He has shown me Christ’s love as any Christ-led husband should. He is my Head and for that I am grateful. Thank you Jesus for him. I don’t deserve this!
