The Blessing of Our Marriage

There are so many blessings to be thankful for this morning!! The one that my mind keeps returning to is my marriage. Saying that we have been through a lot over the years is a bit of an understatement. We haven't always seen things eye-to-eye nor have we handled situations in the manner that the other needed at the given moment. We haven't been there for each other the way that was needed by the other individual. We have made decisions that have hurt each other - some that cut to the very core and have been difficult to mend and are still requiring care. But, when everything is all said and done, we have both decided to stick together and work through the challenges becoming more of what the other person needs and more willing to open ourselves up to one another. It is hard to open up to someone after they have deeply wounded you. It is hard to overlook those past transgressions and forward to the beautiful future that we have together. Yet, marriage is about the union of two souls and working as one for the benefit of both. As we have grown both individually and together - especially over the past year, we have developed a stronger, more solid marriage that has blessed our lives deeply. As we continue to move forward, wounds are still tender and trust not 100% firm, but each day they heal a little more. We are blessed to have God on our side to turn to and guide us through. We are learning to meet each others needs more fully and our marriage has been blessed 1000 times over. I thank God every day for the blessing he has bestowed upon our marriage and our hearts.
