8 Things About My Marriage

posted in Uncategorized |

Jennifer over at Snapshot has tagged me for a marriage meme. I haven’t seen this one around before, and considering that my husband is now 10,000 kilometres away, I think now is a good time :)

1. I have been married 7 1/2 years.

2. One of the most romantic things he has ever done (it really stands out in my mind, not that he doesn’t do romantic things other times) was when we had been married about six months. I had a difficult time finding full-time work in NZ and was getting a lot of rejection letters in the mail. We didn’t have a lot of money and I had a big interview coming up but I didn’t feel comfortable in any of the clothes that I had. One evening I broke into tears and my husband takes me over to our closet and he pulls out an old boot. He upended the boot onto the bed and out falls about $100 in small bills and coins. He had secretly been stashing money away so that I could buy a nice interview outfit. I cried some more, but they were tears of joy :)

3. I am a musical person. When I used to pray about the person I would marry, I always wanted to pray for a musical person but thought that was a bit superficial. God heard my unspoken prayer and gave me a musical person who knocks my socks off.

4. We met on the internet.

5. I love when Handsome leads worship at church. Because I know his heart, watching him lead worship brings me that much closer to our Lord.

6. I know first hand that when my relationship with God is not strong, my marriage suffers. Because of this we put Bible study very high on our priority list.

7. When I look at our relationship, I see an example of Christ’s love for all of humanity. Marriage is a lot of work and requires a huge amount of grace.

8. Being without my husband these last 10 days have shown me that I am not complete without him. We are partners, in every since of the word.
