of holy matrimony… and oh what a sacred thing it is.
People have so many ideas of it. So many different expectations that it and the spouse will bring to completion.
The truth is marriage is for God’s glory and He is working His perfect way in the people involved and the covenant itself. God is the one that completes the people and the work in marriage till death do they part. Oh how I pray that is not for many years, and He will have His perfect way in us and through us for years and years.
When we forget who its truly about and for, things can feel and look pretty messy. Two imperfect people living together, making decisions together, being a family together… there is a lot of room for ugly. There is a whole lot of room for grace though, and forgiveness and learning and growing.
I am thankful for the ugly moments, especially because we are blessed to not have them too too often. When we do though beautiful grace shines through afterwards.
I am so thankful for my husband who points me to the giver and author of marriage and grace and forgiveness and mercy.
I love you Micah Downs.
