I love Brittney. We have only been married for coming up on four years, but she has been such a blessing in my life. My love grows deeper for her every day. We laugh together, cry together, hang out together, disagree with each other, correct each other, and share our lives with each other. Her daily encouragement and love is so reflective of Christ. Neither she, nor I, nor our marriage will ever be perfect and sometimes that makes marriage tough. Although her observations about my many short comings and mess ups may often be painful, they are also usually needed and correct! The Lord uses her as a big reflective mirror to show me where I need to be more "transformed" into His likeness. I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed me so abundantly through Brittney and it is my prayer that all may have such God-centered love in their own marriages :)
Here are some of my more favorite marriage verses...guys, our standard is high...don't know about you, but this convicts me!
Proverbs 5:18 "May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth."
Colossians 3:19 "Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. "
Ephesians 5:25 "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her"
