We celebrated our five year anniversary this weekend (PTL!) Hard to believe it’s been five years. It seems like yesterday in some ways, and then I look at our little ones and realize it has been a journey. These years are amazing in so many ways and we’re so thankful to watch them grow. At the same time we look forward to the time when they can go on trips with us, or backpacking or hiking. Right now we are in a season when our marriage takes somewhat of a backseat to raising these little ones. Especially with the youngest being only a few weeks old. But we are thankful.
Thanks to my mom being here we were able to get away to a bed and breakfast and spend some time relaxing and walking around a little town complete with shops and restaurants and coffee. The sun was bright and beaming and we just enjoyed time outside and time with each other. What a blessing it is to be married to my best friend and a wonderful father to our children. God is so good.
God’s word reminds us to rejoice in the husband or wife of our youth. He encourages us to be ever intoxicated by the love we have for our husband or wife.
PROVERBS 5:15-19, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV)
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
running water from your own well.
16 Should your springs overflow in the streets,
your streams of water in the public squares?
17 Let them be yours alone,
never to be shared with strangers.
18 May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
And even if you are not married, you are the bride of Christ. Isaiah 54:5 says that “your Maker is your husband – the Lord Almighty is His name.”
I pray you are enjoying some alone time with your special someone.
In His Grip,
