The Ultimate Friendship

“There is no more lovely, friendly or charming relationship, communion or company, than a good marriage.” 

―Martin Luther

I have been overjoyed the past seventeen months of marriage and cannot help but overflow with thankfulness. Marriage honestly gets better each day, as Duncan and I grow closer to the Lord and each other.  Yes, some days are better than others and we have disagreements, but it is the most amazing experience being fully known and loved by another person.

Duncan and I often tell people that the best part of marriage is having the ultimate best friend. There truly is nothing else like the companionship of your spouse.  Duncan is the first person I see when I wake up, the person I spend the most time with, the person I end the day with, and the one I want to tell everything.  I love having no secrets, being totally myself, being goofy together, and laughing together.  My absolute favorite thing is laughing uncontrollably together.  I love knowing Duncan so fully and getting to experience his joy and the enjoyment he brings to every part of life.

A Christ-centered marriage is such a beautiful and comforting place: a place of no judgment, with an abundance of honesty, humility, companionship, and challenging/bettering one another.  No matter where we are or what we are doing, together is always the best place to be!  I couldn’t agree with Martin Luther more.

There’s no one I’d rather share everything with (even though I’m not always the best at sharing).
