Spurgeon’s Love Story | Ep. 38

In 1871, Charles Spurgeon wrote to his wife, Susannah:

“My Own Dear one – None know how grateful I am to God for you. In all I have ever done for Him, you have a large share. For in making me so happy you have fitted me for service. Not an ounce of power has ever been lost to the good cause through you. I have served the Lord far more, and never less, for your sweet companionship. The Lord God Almighty bless you now and forever!”
