I remember my college instructor Sheila Wolf telling us girls in her class that there would be days that we would see ALL of our husband's Faults (dirty socks on the floor, etc.) and that the devil would show us other handsome men and make us think that they are perfect. She told us that the other men who look perfect probably have WORSE faults than our husbands have. She said, "Get out your scales and compare your husband to the other man," and then she commanded us, "You'd better make SURE that your husband wins over the other man EVERY TIME!" In other words, she was telling us to CHOOSE to overlook our husbands' faults and choose to focus on THOSE GOOD QUALITIES THAT MADE US FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM!
My Father-in-law said to Phillip the other day, "I can hardly stand to read FB anymore, because it breaks my heart to see SO MANY PEOPLE getting divorces now."
Maybe we have our priorities all WRONG today. We spend $1,000s of dollars on our weddings, and then our marriages don't last more than a few months/years.
My Grandparents got married by the Justice of the Peace in simple clothes, and their marriage lasted over 55 years...and that's when God called my Granddaddy home to Heaven.
When God is the Head of your home, and you each are serving Him, you want what's best FOR YOUR MATE, and learn to give and take.
Married life is both the husband and wife giving 100%.
LOVE IS A DECISION! Most of the time the emotion...the Happy Feeling of Love is there, but whether it is or not, I CHOOSE to Love. I don't have any other choice. I VOWED/PROMISED before God to stay TRUE to my Phillip Until DEATH due us PART! Do we realize how SERIOUS it is to BREAK a promise/VOW before God?
When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Eccl 5:4,5Because I Daily CHOOSE to Love God and my Sweetheart...I'm finding Married life to be ...
~HEAVEN ON EARTH!~ =)
