Adorned by Submission

Friday we’ll celebrate 5 Years of Holy Matrimony.
5 years of learning this . . .

"Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening."
(1 Peter 3:1-6)

Adorned by submission. Can you imagine that?

I am made more beautiful by submitting to my husband in obedience to the LORD. My beauty is enhanced by surrendering my will, my desires, and living with respect towards my husband, in pure conduct, with a gentle and quiet spirit.

Oh LORD let me be more beautiful in Your ways . . . let me be adorned by submission.
