The bible says Forsake father and mother and cleave to your wife (or husband). It is to be a life long affair. It will not always be a bed of roses, all hugs and kisses. No two people are alike. So there will be disagreements and arguments, joys and sadness, hard times and good times, sickness and health. There are circumstances when it is impossible to stay together. That’s when God is there to forgive, but we must also forgive ourselves. Someone may say I’m marrying him (or her) not the family, but remember that family will be your children’s grandparents. Partners should enjoy doing things together, playing, working, being interested in the same hobbies, etc. When there are children, both should agree on rules and punishment. One parent shouldn’t say “do” while the other says “don’t”. Children must know that you love them and will always be there for them. Take time to be with them and be able to say follow me. Be a good role model for them. Marriage is a big important business.
My Grandmother and Grandfather were married for quite a while. Over 50 years I know for sure. I remember that party. 50 years with the same person. That’s very impressive. That’s commitment.
That’s missing today. I hate it for the world.
I hate it for the people who marry and expect it to be forever.
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 HCSB
If you are having problems in your marriage – first – seek God. Work on your marriage. Don’t confide in another man/woman about your marriage issues. If you need to- seek professional help. Don’t be afraid to fight for your marriage.
Marriage can be wonderful. It can be terrible too. But there are ways to make it the best thing in the world. You have to work at it. The great marriages are ones that have been worked on. If you choose to not work on your marriage, you are choosing divorce.
Divorce isn’t supposed to be a marriage ‘fix’.
This is a tough blog to write because I don’t know many people who aren’t divorced. It’s hard for me to call something someone did just flat out wrong… but the scripture does talk about it.
If you want to know more about divorce, message me. If you want to know more about what the scripture says about divorce – dig into the word.
Woah dude! Judah has been sleeping so much better here recently. Like last night? 1am to 7:45. Mama likes.

My little guy looking so big!
Lucy went to a Princess dinner with Mawmaw. She wasn’t a big fan at first, but she eventually warmed up. Ill post the pictures from it when I take them off my camera. Here’s what she wore.
Such a stinker. My ‘life blogs’ have been few, I know. I’m a little cramped on time. We are doing risen week this week and it’s been great! Lots of people coming out.
Ok- got our morning bible study here in a few so I gotta run!
Hope you have an awesome day!
