Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I have been thinking about my marriage. I am happily and JOYfully married to a wonderful man. We are 20 years in and counting. Lord willing, we will grow real old together. So, what is marriage all about? Let me share what 20 years has taught this girl.
Its not about perfection but about accepting. It’s about walking alongside him through life and all it throws your way. Its about respecting him and building him up. Its about smoothing out the wrinkles together. Its about knowing there will be difficult times to experience. Its about taking those difficult times and triumphing by the power of your faith in a sovereign and loving God.
Its about studying him and knowing his particulars. Its about having fun. Its about laughter and hugs. Its about stolen kisses and whispers of love. Its about holding hands and laying your head on his shoulder. Its about realizing how much you really do have in common along with learning to love the differences. Its about truly enjoying one another’s company. Its about appreciating him and all he does. Its about a wink and a smile unexpected and it made your day. Its about growing your family to further God’s kingdom. It’s about tending to one another’s needs. It’s about communicating. It’s about listening. It’s about unity and being one. Its about sharing your faith through prayer and, most importantly, God’s Word.
Its about growing and learning….TOGETHER! Loving unconditionally and fully unto the glory of God.
My beloved is mine, and I am his. (Song of Solomon 2:16)
Share what you have learned in being married. I love to hear love stories and how God moves them to be.
