After reading this quote, I think the only thing I could say was "wow." I really want this for my future. I want my husband and I to do each of these things because it is so important to keep your relationship healthy. I look back at my parents relationship and they don't do half of the things in this quote. Yet, I look at this couple I am staying with and they do every single one, every single day. I desire to be that cute old couple that walks down the road hand in hand. I never want to go a day without telling my husband that I love him. These two pictures are from a little card that I bought to give to one of my Kenyan friends that I will meet this summer. The ABCs of marriage sound very similar to the Peterson quote I have above. I aspire to have these two different principles of marriage in my life one day.
The following are some quotes that God has really laid on my heart the past month. I think they pretty much sum up what God has been doing in my heart & my life.
Katrina about flipped out when I read the verse to her because it is one of her favorites. After she told me that I realized it fits in perfectly with what God has been teaching me. Joshua 24:15 "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord." I aspire to have a husband who will serve the Lord with me in whatever we do (Colossians 3:23). I desire to be on the missions field for the rest of my life and I want someone to be with me as we journey to save the world for Christ. God's going to be doing some crazy things in preparation for my life as a missionary this summer. I don't doubt for one second that God will be working in future husband's heart this summer as well, wherever He is in the world.
