Finacee! Her name is Hilary, and just thinking about her makes me happy. For those of you who don’t know, we are getting married September 12 (almost 5 more months to go now). It seems like it’s never going to get here, but I know it will be here before I know it too. I have been with Hilary now for over 2 years, and during those 2 years I have come to realize that she is most definitely the #2 of my life (of course God is #1, or at least I try to keep him there). That means that out of all the other people in my life, she is the most important, and she is the one that I love more than any other. I am to love her like Christ loves his church, and trust me, that is not how most men view a relationship.
Most men think that since they are the head of the family, that immediately makes them the boss, but if we are to love like Christ, then that is most certainly not the case…..
Hmm… guess I gotta get up there sooner to get the good coffee… anyway, where was I? Oh yea, our roles as men. As the leader of the family, we aren’t bosses, but we are servants. Christ loved the church and he served the church. He healed, he taught, and he even washed his disciples feet, but even more importantly he died for us. The Ultimate Leader is the Ultimate Servant. As men we are called to love like Jesus, to SERVE like Jesus. That is why even though Hilary may be my future “help-mate,” I am her future “servant.”
Maybe we should all remember that sometimes.
Oh, and did I mention my fiancee is really really really super-de-dooper cool? She’s most definitely the most beautiful woman in the whole wide world too!
