A bit from Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas

I'll post soon on my super secret hamburger recipe ;o), but I wanted to share a paragraph from this book I'm reading:

"Marriage teaches us to give what we have. God has given us one body. He has commanded our spouse to delight in that one body- and that body alone. If we withhold from our spouse our body, it becomes an absolute denial. We may not think it is a perfect body, but it is the only body we have to give. "

Pretty basic, but a good reminder for me. My husband is constantly complimenting me. Oftentimes I brush aside the compliment or mutter something sarcastic in return. In reality, I'm so thankful that he finds me attractive! He makes me feel beautiful, and I love him for it.
