One Step Closer...
Steve and I had our final pre-martial counseling class tonight. Our classes were required by our pastor before we get married, which is pretty common. To be honest, we really weren't looking forward to it in the beginning, because we were so busy and felt like it really wasn't going to be worth our time. However, each time we meet, our counselor, got a little less "strict" and really started to engage with Steve and me.
To us, our relationship was pretty strong going into these classes, but now that we are done I can definitely tell that we have become closer and more in tune to each other. Kirk walked us through everything from making a wish list to finical concerns to scripture regarding what a Godly marriage is really all about. There is a lot we learned and a lot that we just needed to be reminded of. Steve and I feel strong about the next chapter in our lives and can't wait to see what God has planned. We know at times it will be really hard, but on the other hand times will be really good!! Tonight we focused on each other and making sure we are lifting each other up everyday and staying committed to a Godly marriage.
"Submit to one other out of reverence for Christ." Ephesians 5:21
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:31
I can't believe there is only 19 days left until the big day!! I am so looking forward to sharing our lives together as husband and wife!!
