When you look around, much of today's society and especially the media, is sending the message that everyone has a poor marriage. . . no one loves their spouse. . . everyone is trapped in matrimony purgatory. . . no husband is faithful. . . no wife is fulfilled. But these pictures speak the opposite. They speak love and joy and commitment and hope. I actually pin these pictures under my Pinterest board called "Nourishment for the Soul."

|this picture was sent to me in one of those forwarded emails|
Here's another picture that was sent to me in one of those forwarded emails, which just shows you what mass appeal they have. We want to see marriages that have lasted, couples who are still in love.
All the above pictures may be posed pictures and may be pictures of hired models, but this last one below is a picture I captured with my own zoom lense. A real life couple.
See. . something inside me wanted to capture this couple. Just seeing this real life man serving and loving his wife made me smile. And made me lean over and kiss my own husband. Made me fall in love with my own husband all over again.
Oh may this be us and our husbands one day. May we be intentional about nurturing our own marriages and be one of those couples that other couples want to hang out with because our marriage encourages them and makes them fall in love with each other all over again.
I am off to send my husband an "I love you" email. :)
