I was talking with an old friend from the now-defunct Mixture network and we were discussing our respective love lives (and for once, I don’t have to say ‘or lack thereof,’ the way I used to all the time!).
It’s hard to explain what makes a marriage like mine work. I just know that I adore and respect Trinity and I am so glad he decided I was the woman he was going to marry. I felt the need to explain to him the other day, that what really sealed the deal with me and him was that I respected his position on church and spirituality – that he actually stood firmly on something. Love is the easy part. Respect? That’s a whole other story. So few people stand for anything nowadays, and I respected that about him.
So it just so happens that I am preparing a Christian education lesson (yes, I sometimes teach Christian education – shocking!) on heroes and I stumbled on this article. Now, I don’t always agree wholeheartedly with what Focus on the Family says or stands for, but this article – so on point. If you’re married or wanting to get married and want it to be better, this article has some good advice. Now go read it.
