Friday Fancies: my love

IMG_1734 It has been rather warm in these parts. Despite our beaming countenances, the Mister was not too keen on taking this picture. Especially since this snapshot was take 12 and all he wanted to do was get out of his jacket and tie, put on a t-shirt and basketball shorts, and enjoy some air-conditioning. And yet, he patiently posed for many a photograph anyhow. What a keeper, wouldn't you agree?

We are nearing the third month of marriage, and God has taught us oodles in loving Him by loving one another as Christ loved us. We are constantly perceiving each other at our best and our worst, and yet we have a beautiful covenant to grow us in sacrificial love, just as God knows us at our best and our worst, and loves us deeply despite our shortcomings because of Christ's work on the cross. God is so kind to teach us to love one another in this way, and we have much more to learn in this lifetime. We watched this video a few weeks prior that just encouraged my heart as it reminded me how radical covenanted, sacrificial love is in marriage as God intended it to be as a reflection of His love for His church. It made us a tad teary, too.

Jeepers, Memorial Day weekend is upon us, which implicates four whole days to rest and reset, because we caught a bit of a bug around here. Have a wondrous weekend, convivial chums.


  1. that is an absolutely beautiful picture!! glad he agreed to take it! :) have a great weekend!

  2. omg. seriously. I think it's adorable that Alex comments on each entry. and that comment above ^ is freaking too cute. WHY ARE YOU GUYS SO CUTE?!

  3. You guys are precious! I'm certain that even the mister couldn't disagree that that glorious moment of a photo was worth every bit of sweatiness and what not.

    Also, thank you for the link to the video. My mister and I watched it and we're truly thankful to the Lord for the bit of encouragement and edification. I may have forwarded it to my entire email address book... Maybe.
