Love After Marriage

Genesis 2:24 “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”

Last week I asked a friend whose father had passed away recently, how he and his family were managing through it all. He replied “well my mom was 22 on their wedding day, and they had the ‘joined at the hip’ type of marriage that you don’t really see in this generation, so you can imagine it’s not that easy for her.” I’m on dream #33 of the 100 dream exercise, and I felt called to add “joined at the hip type of marriage that is rare in this generation” to my list of dreams yesterday. When I told Elaine this she laughed and said “how are we going to get that if you don’t even like hanging out with me?!” This is a bit of an overstatement. It is true that her love language is quality time and mine is definitely not, but I really do cherish my time with my wife, and I know God has a lot more beautiful time together in store. Lord, exactly one year ago today we were flying back from Love After Marriage, probably the most transformational experience that I’ve ever been through. We went from the lowest low to the highest high of our 9 years of married life in less than 24 hours. You have the power to heal, to restore and to transform us into your likeness. I praise you for all that you’ve done in my union with Elaine, and I look forward to so much more. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
