Bride of Christ, not wife of Christ

The end of the sermon today talked about the church as Christ's bride, and how grooms view brides. I'm really glad Jesus sees us as his bride instead of as his wife. This morning, what Patrick observed about me was: I left a stinky washcloth from washing the kid's feet on the sink instead of a towel rack; I didn't get the tupperware container with the not-very-good cookies I made specifically for him with the lid not completely closed; and that I need a bib, since I dripped spaghetti sauce on the brand new shirt he brought home for me on Friday.

Thanks for seeing us as a groom sees a bride, perfect and beautiful, instead of how a husband views a wife, very imperfect and very human.
