Some friends from church have asked me to "guest teach" their life group for a month or so and the topic is marriage.
Marriage is one of my favorite subjects. I love being married and feel like I was born to be married. The commitment, the love, the work and reward of it is so symbolic of the position we all take as the Bride of Christ. Marriage is rich in spiritual meaning and all the sweeter for it when experienced in the real world.
So I'll probably be blogging quite a lot about marriage and relationships and perhaps even divorce, (check out Am on the right for some thoughts on that topic) as I try to put words to my heart in the next month or so.
I'd like to ask you to pray for the Mr. and myself as we embark on this new opportunity to teach the heavenly perspective on daily life. I'll admit that I'm a little challenged in that we don't have a text book marriage ourselves...not a great deal of candy and flowers (nor shaved legs Margie) propelling this union forward.
And if you're wondering, my dear Lifegroupies; what of our Wednesday night group? It will march forward as always. We'll just be leading a second group for a while as guests. Never fear, I'm sure once they get a load of us, they'll send us back from whence we came!
So dearly beloved, feel free to share your thoughts and questions about one of the most mysterious and common experiences in the world...marriage.
As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.
