Eleven years ago, to the very day, and on a Friday morning, Mister and I became husband and wife.
I was pretty scared, but God told me to marry him, and I did love him so, so I did. Mister was confident and happy about us.
I am happy to report that our marriage continues to blow me away and far exceed my expectations of how wonderful an earthly relationship could be.
But I know why it is that way.
It's because my man is sold out to God. (As am I!) As Ecclesiastes 4 says,
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Not only does our marriage enable us to each serve God better, but it makes us better. It brings us closer to God, and closer in Him. It surely is nothing we could even come close to on our own.
I have never been happier in my life.
