Today is my anniversary! In honor of fourteen years (wow! We can't be old enough for that!,)I give you an acrostic:
Always be gentle, because a soft answer turns away wrath.
Never hold grudges, because love keeps no record of wrongs.
Never lie, because love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth.
Invest time into your marriage, because it was created by God for His glory and for your good.
Value your husband, because he was made in God's image.
Encourage your husband, so that he need not find praise elsewhere.
Respect him, because God has given him the difficult job of leadership in your home.
Say the words, because we all need to hear, "I love you."
Always forgive, because Christ has offered forgiveness to you.
Rejoice in his successes, because He was gifted by God.
Yield your heart to God first, then you will be ready to take your place beside our husband.
