I was thinking....I don't right too much about my husband. So, here it goes.
I fell in love with this quiet and gentle spirit from the beginning. He has kept that through the years and I am thankful. Not sure if I would be a good fit with someone aggressive and loud. God knew what He was doing when He matched us up. Although our personalities don't always link up at times...I feel God put us together....and I am keeping him!
It's funny how when we were dating, both of us felt like we were so similar. I don't know how and when that changed but we are very different from each other in many ways. Maybe that was God linking us up? I think as we get older we change and get to know ourselves more and figure out what we like and don't like and who we are in Christ. I know myself and feel more comfortable being me more now than I did 10 years ago or even 5 years ago.
Thank God for for His love and His forgiveness...I thank Him because it makes our marriage more manageable when we have Christ to learn from. We are selfish people and sometimes want our own way but when we are in tune with God, He can quickly correct us to think of the other person first. My goal should be to serve my husband and not focus on myself entirely. I am "getting" it. Maybe a couple more fumbles and I may get it completely. Until then, I will remember this song I heard on the way to church this past Sunday..He's Not Finished With Me Yet!!
