Anyone out there know Tim Hawkins? He’s a Christian comedian who’s actually funny. I know, bizarre.
Well, here’s a valentine from Tim Hawkins.
Hawkin’s is married (obviously) with 4 children, who are homeschooled. This video reminded me of something the speaker, Tim Lane, said at the marriage retreat last weekend. Describing himself on his wedding day he said, “It was great! There I was at the end of the aisle waiting for my beautiful bride, thinking, “Wow, I’m great and I love me, now she gets to love me too.”
Mr. TommyD and I chuckled last night remembering our dating days and early marriage. We definitely fell into the category of thinking we had it all figured out. We went to a marriage retreat after we were married one month. We spent most of the time thinking, “We do all this stuff right already, what’s wrong with all these people?”
Well, the Lord’s been gracious in removing that delusion. And giving us nothing to boast in but the cross of Christ. The cross of Christ is what keeps us married, keeps us loving, keeps us humble.
