CHRIST-CENTERED LOVE



Pete and I have been together a little over 4 years. 

Looking back through our years together, I can honestly say that I have never been more satisfied in our relationship  as I am today. Marital bliss is not the same thing as lustful passion, although passion is a necessity for marriage. A Christ-centered marriage is far more rewarding than youthful puppy-love and romance. 

I've been falling in love with the same person every day – over and over… for over four years now... and still, God renews us each day and it never gets old. I am married to my best friend. We even finish each other’s sentences. And though our attention gets swallowed up by mundane daily tasks a lot of times, there is a wonderful blessing to having complete trust and faith in God's ability to keep us together through the trials of life. 

To my newly engaged and/or recently married friends, there's no magic pill that guarantees you will stay together and have a wonderful union... it all boils down to sacrifice, service, loyalty, thoughtfulness, and Jesus .

(Heavy on the Jesus part.)
