oh, today. my heart sings songs of joy and gladness!

every single day is absolutely marvelous. 

at least when you're married to ethan burt. 

i just needed to write just now. about it. 
i was just realizing how ridiculous it is how happy i am. 
so i needed to record it so i can look back again one day when i maybe need it. 

i was about to go to write a letter to my dear pen pal. 
or read some more romans to journal for tomorrow night. 
or go to bed because i'm hurting extra tonight and i'm so exhausted. 

but then i just needed to blog real quick instead. 

i'm so joyous. and my heart is incredibly satisfied in Christ and my marriage is positively blessed and brilliant. 

we had a fantastic day today. 

ethan said some really sweet things that are my new favorite. 
i have this list that i just keep adding to over the years of new favorite things that he says.
who cares if it was about something silly like hair or making fun of my laugh, somehow he finds new ways to compliment me and his laughing at my quirks never gets old. 
it's just his way. and it leaves my heart in a puddle. 

and i realized while talking with a dear friend that i hadn't thanked him lately for being a wonderful leader and for loving God more than he loves me. 

i trust him with all that i am because i know he trusts God and leans on Him and not his own thoughts or own understanding. 

i am a very very blessed woman. 

to be the wife of a man who has given his heart to Christ.
he lives a transformed life. 
it's just.. more than i ever dreamed of. 

my favorite thing about today was e worshiping in his car. 
loudly. 
he was picking me up and while waiting for me, he chose to spend his time in worship. 
i get to see that. and it impacts my life. he makes me want to know God more. 

he's bold and brave and he's not afraid to be bold and brave. 
around anyone! 

and, he's freaking handsome, too. 
so. there's that. 

i can't get over how good looking he is. 
and i'm glad i don't have to. 

it's not necessary to be so good looking. 
but my eyes totally appreciate it. 

i enjoy our married life to the fullest. 

it is a rich blessing that God did not have to give me. 

i will rejoice every single day that i am blessed with him. 
and i will be thankful even when he's gone. for any time with ethan is enough. 
i am full. 
and God is sweet. 

it's true that the more you fall in love with God and the more your husband falls in love with God, the more you both fall in love with each other. 
it just is. 

that's marriage. 

Praise God! 
marriage is a sweet, sweet gift from Love Himself.
