"The First Year Of Marriage"

I was out with pink eye today (new teachers' bodies have to adjust to so many germs) so I went to the doctor, tried to get some stuff done.. and took a nap, and then another one later. Good going, Jamie. Now, I can't sleep. :P

Reminds me of my time to Spain. When my family lived in Spain, I had a hard time adjusting to the major time change and my family slept about twice as much as college Jamie did, so I would read. Sermons, articles, books, whatnot. Usually, I learned a lot and the reading would eventually make me tired.

Tonight, I stumbled across a good post on marriage. Since I have friends who are newlyweds, friends returning from honeymoons, friends engaged, friends in courtships, single friends who desire to grow in their understanding of marriage, and happily-married-for-years friends, I think this may encourage many people. Sometimes, the really doctrinally-rich stuff hits us and sometimes, it's these personal testimonies of REAL people.

Enjoy. Thoughts?

Jamie, thanks for the link. Good stuff. Most of the books I am overly-emphasize how hard it is. I am looking forward to being sanctified but I know it is gonna be tough, especially at first.
