The "extravagant blessing" of a good marriage

Sweet Annabelle blogged today about the blessing of a good and Godly marriage. Her post brought tears to my eyes. I hope you will read it all, but here is an excerpt if you don't have the time:

I used to wish  that we'd have more money, maybe live in a bigger house, drive newer (faster) vehicles. Now, standing where I am, and having been where I've been, I know that I'm already rich and have been for some time! God  has given me the extravagant wealth of a truly loving husband and a fulfilled marriage. 

The hurt of unhappy marriages has been all around me lately. Because of this and more than ever, I feel the urging to guard and treasure this gift. If you have been given the same wonderful gift, I'm rejoicing with you and encourage you to also guard your treasure.
