The Truth About Trent

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

When we were little kids we thought of marriage as a perfect relationship lived out in a make-believe world. We imagine our husband-to-be as Prince Charming.

I’ll be the first to admit that Trent and I don’t live in a make-believe world and he isn’t Prince Charming, at least the one in the fairy tale. (Honestly I don’t think I’d want them to be , at least 90% most of the time.)

When Trent and I first met I had just healed from the break-up of my first marriage. I wasn’t really looking for a husband. In fact, I told people that I wasn’t going to get married again. As he miraculously broke through the walls that I had built around my heart I had no doubt that he was the man God intended me to marry. It was a beautiful but scary thing!

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been married nearly seven years. In some ways, it feels like we’ve been married forever and in other ways it feels like just yesterday. But one thing is true, this husband of mine is such a blessing from the Lord and I’m so thankful for him.

Trent is a sweet spirit but he also has a feisty side and we love to laugh together. When we first got married he would say the craziest, yet funniest, things to make me laugh. I often wondered if he’d be able to make me laugh like that when we’d been married for a few years. And, I’m here to tell you that he still comes up with things to make me bust out laughing.

He not only works hard to financially support us but he also supports me and my web design business. My income fluctuates and at times our budget can be tight. Trent always says he’d rather me be happy more than anything else. (Those are words to any girl’s heart.)

When I need to cry he’ll gently pull me close and hold me, and when I need to vent he’ll sweetly listen and offer advice if needed. There are times that we can sit in complete silence and just be – I love it!

Sure, there are times when he drives me nuts (and I can only imagine how crazy I drive him) but I love this man dearly. He’s not perfect but he’s perfect for me!

Thank you Father for blessing me with this man. May you grow our relationship together. May we look to you first and keep you at the center of our marriage.

    I’m so very thankful to have Trent as my son-in-law. His unconditional love for you is so obvious as your love is for him. We are most blessed to have him in our family. Your dad thought very highly of him.
