This is one of my favorite posts written two years ago. We have been married almost 28 years and have known each other since 1980. As different as we are God brought us together to glorify Him in marriage...to show us that we are two sinners that need the gospel for our marriage every single day. Who do you think prefers to go barefoot?
I've asked my dear hubby several times over the years how we ever got together? Always wearing shoes or going barefoot was the cause for the question again recently. You can tell me who you think loves to go barefoot!
This is a short list of our differences. None of them have ever been a deal breaker...because of our common love of Jesus and our service to Him. As he was preaching today I thought I am the luckiest girl in the world...he is the best. Lest you think it has been easy...that will have to wait for another post.
He makes me laugh most days...
In fact he said to me over the weekend he wonders what our family of woodchucks do when they scamper under our shed when we pull in the driveway.
Do they chat? do they get together and talk about the humans living in the big white house? and proceeded to ask me if I wondered about them too.
Note to husband...you should probably watch what you say to me, some conversations just may end up here!
I also heard the word 'wedded bliss' this week. I just want to be married were her exact words. Not sure if I spelled it right and not sure what wedded bliss looks like but I knew what she meant.
As this list shows our many differences and working them out together, I would say wedded bliss means dying to self and seeking first God's Kingdom.
