This past April we celebrated 4 years of marriage, today is the 3 year anniversary of our wedding.
As many military couples often do we got married at the courthouse and had a bigger wedding later. A decision I would never change. Having two days a year to celebrate and reflect on our marriage is wonderful.
Life isn't always perfect and Scott and I have no where near a perfect marriage but our love for one another is strong enough to last an eternity.
Last night in our small group we discussed Ephesians 5:21:
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
This verse was a great reminder to give everything to my marriage just as Christ gave everything for us. The word "submit" or "submissive" is a negative word in mainstream society. I have struggled to understand what this word means when it is used in the bible. I am really starting to understand what it means to submit myself to my husband and to the Lord.
