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.
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.
