Same Page


I have a confession. Matthew and I have never sat down and read the Bible together.  Well, studied the Bible together to be exact.

Well, we've most certainly sat next to one another at church and read the same scripture the Pastor was sharing.

We've been to the same small groups and sat in a room with others and read a passage.

We've sat quietly next to one another and have independently dived into scripture on our own in different parts of the Bible.

Yet, we've never studied His Word together. Tonight we did.  We were suppose to meet up with our new weekly small group, but traffic and weather decided to keep us nice and cozy in a gridlock.  I digress. . .

So we returned to the house and opened the Bible and went over the study on our own.  Then we prayed.  Never have we ever truly delved into the Bible or prayed the way we prayed tonight.   It was different.  We were on the same page - literally and figuratively - spiritually.  We know marriage won't be easy.  We know it will take a lot of work. Patience. Forgiveness. And, a whole lot of Jesus.  But. . .we're still on the same page.
