Big enough to be gentle and great enough to be thoughtful

“If I marry: He must be so tall that when he is on his knees, he reaches all the way to heaven. His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family. His lips must be strong enough to smile, firm enough to say no, and tender enough to kiss. He must be big enough to be gentle and great enough to be thoughtful. His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child.”

– Ruth Bell Grahm

In honor of my brother, who’s getting married this afternoon, and my wonderful husband. You are good and godly men, and I love you both very much.
