Baby, I love you more than ever, and words cannot begin to express how thankful i am to God for giving me the most amazing gift of an incredible husband. You have helped me to grow so much, and I can't wait to grow old with you. Happy 5 year anniversary!
So I was reading Beth Moore's blog today and her daughter posted on there an excerpt from a book called Devotions For A Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. It basically so well put into words what i hope my marriage always looks like.
Personal worship is an absolute necessity for a strong marriage. It comes down to this: If I stop receiving from God, I start demanding from others. Instead of appreciating and loving and serving others, I become disappointed in them. Instead of cherishing my wife(husband), I become aware of her(his) shortcomings. I take out my frustrations with a less-than-perfect life and somehow blame her(him) for my lack of fulfillment.But when my heart gets filled by God's love and acceptance, I'm set free to love instead of worrying about being loved. I'm motivated to serve instead of becoming obsessed about whether I'm being served. I'm moved to cherish instead of feeling unappreciated.
So here is to a lifetime ahead of worshipping my God, and in turn, the other relationships in my life, primarily my marriage will be blessed!
