I am a Wife 5×7
This poem reminds us to be the kind of wives we desire to be, and the kind of wives our husbands need us to be. Originally written by Jennifer Strickland for her husband, this poem calls us to live our vows through the sunshine and shadows of our marriages, and to be a source of hope and healing for the men we love.
“I am a wife to but one man,
fashioned by God’s hand,
I am his complement, his companion,
His lover and his life,
I am the breath in his bones,
I refuse division and strife. . . .
I will stand in the shallows, in peaks, in the streams,
I will love till last breath
This man of my dreams. . . .”
