Today. I just want to get honest with you and talk about marriages and why they are really difficult sometimes. Frankly, marriages take a lot of work. A wedding may have just been a day; but building a marriage, especially an intimate marriage, is a lifetime pursuit. And let’s be honest, there’s a lot of pain and suffering that goes on inside of a lot of marriages. I can’t think of anything more challenging, stretching, testing, and at the same time, more fulfilling than trying to build an intimate marriage.
In reality, at least for me, it hasn’t all been just roses. It’s more like a rose garden. There’s going to be a lot of thorns there amongst the roses. There’s going to be weeds to pull. There’s going to be rainstorms, and like any rose garden it requires a lot of attending, fertilizing, and just waiting. It makes the flowers that bloom that much more precious.
