In Praise Of A Great Wife!

Recently, in my private devotions, I was reading Proverbs 31 about the qualities of a great wife. The Proverbs 31 woman is kind, generous, godly and hard working. I was reminded that I have a great wife!


God brought Anna into my life 33 years ago. She was the cute little Italian girl singing in the church choir. I had this prayer request list of 19 things that I was praying for in a wife. She has fulfilled all of those 19 things and much more in our wonderful marriage together. 

It has been great to grow together, laugh together, cry together and see the world together. She has been an amazing friend, mother and now grandmother. Or as our grandkids, Berea and Ezra, call her, ‘Nonni’!

This summer we get to hang out with our whole immediate family for a week in Italy. We all love being together. And I give a large part of that credit to Anna. She is the glue that holds the family together. She is the one who is always putting together great meals. She is the one who is always phoning the kids. She loves to look after her family. She has a great servant’s heart! Her love for me, the kids and grandkids is amazing.

So, I raise a toast to my beautiful wife and all the great wives out there. Husbands, we are blessed to have such great women in our lives! I am blessed to have my cute little Italian wife, Anna, in my life! Here is a toast to many more decades together! I am excited to see what God has next for us!

    Dear Mark that was such a beautiful tribute to your wife Anna, she also is blessed to have you as well. May you both have many more years together. I also was married to my best friend, we grew older together and one day will be reunited again. God bless and know that I’m praying for you.
    Take care and keep trusting the Lord He will direct your path. I believe He has great things in store for you.
