Marriage Is a Lifetime of Love

Marriage embraces two people in love for a lifetime of sharing.
Marriage is a unique sharing of day-to-day events.
It's having someone with you in spirit to give support and love at all times.
Happiness in marriage doesn't just happen.
A good marriage requires time and devotion; it's often filled with compromise and sacrifice, as two people learn to live together in harmony.
In marriage, little things become big.
It's important to never take one another for granted and to always be able to hold each other.
Marriage is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
Being married means having a lifetime best friend, someone to laugh with, dream with, and cry with.
The true foundation of marriage is giving love continuously and unconditionally from one's heart.
~ Sherry Jill Shaw-Levine "Marriage Is a Promise of Love"

as someone whose marriage hasn't turned out quite as i had expected, i haven't found many of the things mentioned in this article to be true in my own life... sadly.
however i do agree that marriage can be- even under the most difficult of circumstances- an expression of love over a lifetime. love can be expressed in many different ways. although my dh and i are not together i try to show him the love of God in some small way whenever i can. simple things like making it easy for him to see the children, building him up to them, allowing them to love and admire him unhindered by any bitterness on my part. making him his favorite treat or dessert upon occasion, running errands for him.

i think often times we ladies tend to think that we are exempt from loving and respecting our husbands if they don't do the same for us, but i don't see any justification for this in scripture, do you?;)

great post... as usual☺

What an amazing woman you are. Still showing him the love of God. It's so good to hear that you make it easy for him to see the children.

May I recommend a movie? My DH and I watched "Fireproof". I think every couple should watch it!
