Weekend Worship—Real Life

Love is patient . . .
Today is our 29th wedding anniversary. And while it may seem strange to use a devotion post to talk about my marriage it really isn’t. You see, I’ve experienced the love of Christ through my marriage.

Now a lot of us have probably had moments where the love of Jesus shone through someone’s act of love or kindness, but I’ve lived in that place for 29 years. Kirk has modeled Jesus’ love for me moment by moment and year by year.

He’s shown me that while love is a great feeling—the fulfillment is of it is truly an action.

He encourages my dreams, supports me when I falter, and most of all, forgives my faults. He doesn’t just love me in spite of my imperfections—he loves me through them.

To me, I Corinthians is real life, because of my husband.

I love you, Sweetheart!
