Blessed Exceedingly 

1 Nephi 16

I love how Nephi talks about his getting married as being blessed by the Lord *exceedingly*. How beautiful is that? Is that how my husband would describe our relationship? Hmm. 

“7 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, took one of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also, my brethren took of the daughters of Ishmael to wife; and also Zoram took the eldest daughter of Ishmael to wife. 8 And thus my father had fulfilled all the commandments of the Lord which had been given unto him. And also, I, Nephi, had been blessed of the Lord exceedingly.”
