honesty and the meaning of marriage

i read this blog post today by sarah markley (i met her once during a blogger/twitter meet up and her and her husband chad are pretty cool peeps). the post is a good read for married people. she gives beautiful advice about honesty in marriage.

check it when you can --> http://allume.com/2012/04/marriage-honesty/  =)

and once you get the chance...take time to read the meaning of marriage by timothy & kathy keller (amazon link here). i read the book and i highly recommend it. they share a different approach on writing about commitment and marriage and how we are to pattern our marriages and relationships the same way Jesus and His bride does, but also the way the Trinity relates with each other. pretty interesting read.

"to be fully known and truly loved, is well, a lot like being loved by God. it is what we need more than anything. it liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self -righteousness and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us....marriage has a unique power to heal hurts and convince us of our own distinctive beauty and worth" - tim keller

hope you enjoy the blog and the book as much as i did.
