My answer is (possibly) going to come off cliche. I'm okay with that since it's the truth.
So, here's it goes...
"How's married life? You know, the first year is the hardest."
Wonderful. Exceptional. Nothing better. Life is absolutely grand - I can't even properly put into words how amazing it is.
I'm not sure why people have problems within the first year. I would think people would still be in the "honeymoon stage."
For us, as Christ followers, a huge part is that we are equally yolked. That is the main ingredient that binds us as one.
Not a day goes by where I am not reminded how much I am loved, how beautiful I am, how much thanks and praise I am given.
The past couple of weeks have been a little tough for me, and once again, I am reminded why I married the man I did. In my times of weakness, he gave me hugs, kisses, encouragement...and most of all, he prayed with me.
Our marriage makes me feel safe...it makes me feel whole...it makes me feel special...it makes me feel loved and honored...it makes me feel respected.
I am thankful for a marriage like ours. And I pray that yours is as anointed as ours.
