I was a beaming bride, becoming and beautiful, tan and thin with $100 hair about to marry the man of my dreams.
He’s still the man of my dreams, but now my dreams have changed a bit.
At our wedding, I was looking forward to a lifetime of wonderful, and so far, we have had a whole lot of wonderful, combined with a healthy dose of regular along with a smidgen of bad. Being married is so much more than I ever thought it would be. It’s required more of me than I ever thought it would. I’ve had to change more and compromise more than I ever thought I should. And yet, being married has brought out the best in both of us, and challenged us in ways that cause us to be better people. We are continually working on becoming who God would have us be and our marriage gets better as a result.
Revolutionary books for me:
Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands
One thought on “Four Years Ago Today”
I have a hunch the purpose of marriage is different than we think while we’re getting into it. We think we’re doing it because we’re in love and that’s what people in love do. But now I think that marriage – and child-rearing – are God’s implements for helping us grow up into who he knows we really are.
