what marriage has taught me - part 1

This weekend, hubby and I will celebrate our 2 year anniversary.  I can't believe how fast the past two years have FLOWN by. They have been absolutely amazing and I really expect them to get even better.  I wanted to share a few things I've learned from being married. How deeply our God loves us.

If marriage has taught me anything...It has taught me about love.  True love. Agape love.  The love that is so deep that only God can give.  I always thought I had a bit of a grasp on how God loves us.  I had John 3:16 memorized.  I knew despite all we do, that He loves us. I've been told all that my entire life.

It was until saying I do, and beginning a life with this man that God had created for me, did I realize I didn't understand His love at all.  It is unconditional.  Unbelievable.  Something we as humans can't wrap our minds around.  But God created marriage between a man and a woman to to perfect, pure and intimate.  Just like He wants our relationships with Him to be.

My husband has taught me how to love fully.  For that, I am forever grateful.  I have a deeper love for our Father who created us with each other in mind. I have a deeper love for my husband each and everyday.  It's truly a beautiful and perfect thing.
