“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.” Proverbs 31
Gia and I got to spend some much needed time together today. Our hosts graciously offered to watch Bella, and kick us out of the nest, as we jaunted off into the city alone for the first time. We went to “Cafe Coffee Day,” which is — what else — India’s version of Starbucks. Fitting, right? I think we’ve been hanging in here pretty good — our days are not packed full with riding trains, rickshaws, and other activities, and we rest quite regularly, (that is SURELY not to say just traveling in Mumbai isn’t difficult!), but nothing calms me and makes me more content in life than spending time with my wife. Just speaking with her, hearing what is on her heart, being able to share my burdens and joys with her, is a blessing I surely don’t deserve. I am so thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with her, whether we are in Merced, Fresno, Los Angeles, India, or another place in the world — because truly wherever she is will be home for me. The writer of Proverbs 31 must have had Gia in mind when he wrote it.
