Better than I could ever say it

People that have known me for a lllooooonnnggg time get a kick out of the fact that I call myself "Mrs Montoya".  For someone so fiercely independent and seemingly predisposed to take care of me, and only me, it is a little laughable that I want so badly to be identified as belonging to someone else.  I am totally OK with that.  And this is why.

Being married is the greatest thing in my life.  Is every day butterflies and chocolate sprinkles?  Absolutely freakin' not.  I am a loyal wife. I am not a liar.  Being married is hard work, but the rewards are overwhelmingly positive.  Posts on marriage cross my mind all the time, but I can never quite get to where I want to be in writing.  And guess what?!?!?  Someone else did it.  Really, really beautifully.

I follow Sarah Mae on twitter and read her blog Like a Warm Cup of Coffee constantly. She is holy and real and a ton of other things that I think are cool.  Here's what she said today that grabbed me and made me ask her if I could repost her writing.

I want to be more like Jesus.

I want to love hard…everyday.

Lately I have felt led to share my Lenten sacrifice and subsequent revelations and honestly just haven't had time to sit down and put it in writing.  My heart says I need to do that this week.  I do want to be more like Jesus and I do want to love hard . . .everyday.

Thank you Sarah Mae for words more beautiful than I could deliver on my own.
 
Thank you, Lord for not letting me be my own.  It is a beautiful gift.
 
Go read what Sarah Mae has to say about marriage.  And visit her often.  You'll never be disappointed.
