Thank You for my Marriage

Dear Lord Jesus, the Bridegroom of the Church,

You understand everything about marriage, even though you were never married.
(You created marriage, after all.)
And you created me and my husband,
so you fully anticipated the areas where we would clash
and the areas we would jell.
Thank you.
Even when we disagree or become irritated, because of you, we grow stronger.
We grow deeper in love and appreciation for each other
and more awed by your love and grace.
Thank you for my marriage--for all of it--
for the good days and the difficult days,
for the joys and sorrows,
for the realism of living my whole adult life with one person.
I am the luckiest girl alive.
You have blessed me so much!
Thank you, thank you thank you!
I love you,

Amen.
