3 Years

“Marriage is not mainly about staying in love. It’s about covenant keeping. And the main reason it is about covenant keeping is that God designed the relationship between a husband and his wife to represent the relationship between Christ and the church. This is the deepest meaning of marriage. And that is why ultimately the roles of headship and submission are so important. If our marriages are going to tell the truth about Christ and his church, we cannot be indifferent to the meaning of headship and submission. And let it not go without saying that God’s purpose for the churchand for the Christian wife who represents itis her everlasting holy joy. Christ died for them to bring that about. "

- John Piper -

Seeing as how our anniversary was on August 26th, this is almost 2 months late. But, nevertheless, I have to mention that we had a blast on our anniversary trip to Couples Sans Souci in Negril, Jamaica. And I love my husband! What a sweet picture of Christ and his bride, the Church.

Have you been reading "This Momentary Marriage" ? It is sooo good. If you haven't, it's more of that wonderful quote from Piper.
