I Am A Bride Daily

Not exactly the kind of post you would expect to see on a Blog as "masculine" as mine :0! But seriously. I don't actually goto the blogs I read very often since for the most part I read the post through my Bloglines RSS reader. However, I was enjoying a post from Epiphany when it ended and I need to read the rest over on her site.

As I was reading the post I saw this image:

And thought what a wonderful picture it was of what I want my relationship with Christ to be. I want to be the Bride of Christ in everyday sorts of ways! I want to belong to God in each and every casual decision I make. I think this picture perfectly illustrates the concept of living in two worlds as God's people. We must be real (the jeans) and we must be God's Brides in that reality.

I will definitely use this image on Sunday when I speak to the 3rd through 6th graders at our Pre-Teen Youth Rally!

What a beautiful picture. BTW, those are the words on our wedding bands...though in Hebrew.

I'd love for you to join the discussion on marriage at
Hope your family is doing well. LOVED the letter to the elders! I didn't realize you were at Cardinal Drive. (I'm slow sometimes) I dated David Carnes when I was about 13. Long story...
