Well, guys, I’m a bit late posting, but it was a busy weekend so I hope you’ll forgive me.
My friend, Elizabeth got married on Saturday and celebrating with them took most of our time this weekend,
but, I want to finish up the A to Z blogging challenge today so I end on schedule.
For X, I’m going to (probably) introduce you to a word.
An Xanthippe is a woman who is ill-tempered and often scolding.
We have the word today because of Socrates’ proverbially scolding and quarrelsome wife.
As I thought about this, it struck me how terrible it would be to leave that sort of legacy on your marriage.
When people look at our relationship, I want to make sure that they see a loving, generous, and supportive woman standing beside her loving, generous, and supportive husband. I want to be remembered as a couple that played often, fought fair, and made wise decisions together. And most of all, I want people to see that we love with a love than can only be inspired by the way our Father loves us.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7
What about you? What sort of legacy do you want to leave with your marriage?
