My anniversary is coming up this weekend - Saturday, to be exact. We will be married 16 years on May 29, 2010.
I love this verse (and the picture ain't bad either LOL - that's one cute husband I married, dontcha think?), and I love that it is in both the Old Testament and the New. I grew up knowing it from my Jewish background (but not really understanding it) - and it's quoted three times in the Christian canon -both by Jesus and Paul.
This "one flesh union" is almost as mysterious at the trinity. How two can become one is not easy to explain. I only know that it is true. After 16 years, we are more joined than we were 10 years ago, and shall be even more so in 20 years, God willing. He is just what I need, and I'd like to think he feels the same way about me.
We have problems--internal and external, physical, emotional, practical, and spiritual--but we are still one. We mess up, but are still there for each other. We may not be perfect, but we are perfect for each other - and perfect in Him who created us and brought us together.
After 16 years, I am still thrilled and blessed to have the wonderful husband I have. There's no one I'd rather be one flesh with.
