In month 1+ of marriage, I am still somehow shocked at how much God has entrusted to us, and in turn, how much he calls out of us in marriage. I don't even recognize how much I fall short sometimes. This verse reminds me quickly where my goals must lie. I can say with a little shame but 'eye on the prize' mentality that I wouldn't consider myself a woman with a gentle or quiet spirit, but I am aiming for it daily. Some days I hit the seventh ring of the target, some days I miss the board completely. But I do know the direction I need to move in.
I have lots to learn, praise God that I have access to the perfect guide book.
Update: Shimmy and I are in Pittsburgh for our friends wedding, and then headed to D.C. for a quick (really quick, one day) house hunt. Then we are home in St. Louis for a day before heading to the wedding of our lovelies, Sharon and Greg!
