I love this quote from John Piper. It offers a beautiful picture of what marriage is supposed to look like!

Anyone who says marriage is easy hasn't been married. Whether you've been married weeks or decades, you've probably realized that it isn't all butterflies and bliss. When two (sinful) people come together and live as one, there are bound to be bumps in the road. But that's what makes marriage so beautiful!  The hard times (everyone has them) are what strengthen you and give you character. And when you know that through it all, God is good, you can make it through anything.

As you start this week, I hope you'll take a minute to pray for your husband. Whether you're coming off a great weekend together and hate to see it end, or you're ready to get back to work so you don't have to spend so much time with him, pray for him. Pray for his day. Pray that his eyes would be opened to God's blessings for him and that he would be an encouragement to others.

I pray that you would be a blessing to him. That you would take time to truly see him, to hear what's on his heart, and to love him no matter what. As women, we often set the tone for our homes. Let's make it positive!

Have a great week!
