Sacred Marriage

Jessica loaned me a book a few weeks ago: "Sacred Marriage" by Gary Thomas. The most important thing I've learned from it?

I have a truly amazing husband.

Just about every example of what spouses ought to be striving toward made me think two things:

1) Am I doing this? I should be doing this!
2) Gabe already does this.

I noticed this most in the chapter on serving our spouses. You know what? Gabe does this well. And consistently, which is more than I can say for myself.

So I have some new goals. And a whole new level of appreciation for the man I married.

I like to say,Women with good husbands are hard to impress-- there's just so little to improve on.

Especially when I run into another type of man I find myself again thanking God for the one He gave *me*.

Jenn and I both read that book a while back. I thought it was pretty good, but one of the things it made me realize (yet again) was how strong Mom and Dad's marriage is.

Now that I'm married myself, I'm grateful for my wife and the way she is too. :)
