Hello to all who read! Justin and I celebrated our two year anniversary yesterday! It has been a wonderful two years. I believe we have established a tradition in our anniversaries; going to the zoo! Our 1 year anniversary we went to the L-ville Zoo and this year we went to the Cinci Zoo. It is aways fun visiting the zoo! Marriage is such a blessing to be a part of. It is humbling, self sacrificing, loving, persevering, and challenging. Each day I spend with Justin I learn so much more about myself. Right before Justin and I married this scripture I studied over and over again. It is a clear picture of how a man and woman should treat each other, and also a beautiful picture as a bride of Christ. Still today I am reminded of this scripture and truly hope that my life is a life of Christ and therefore an overflow of that will present a love and respect for my husband!
22Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— 30for we are members of his body. 31"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."[c] 32This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
