Okay, this is going to be the final post on Passion and Marriage. However, these responses came in today from two females and I thought it really tied the week together.
Forgive me for the indulgence. And the expression of thank you made is really not for me, though I accept it and humbled by it. This topic was suggested by Georgia Hill a couple of months ago. At first, I was hesitant because so many marriage topics end up syrupy and sugary but are not often where people are in fighting to save their marriage. So thank you to Georgia Hill for the suggestion of the topic.
Here is the feedback received earlier today.
“I have enjoyed your blogs on marriage…I agree with all that has been said, and all the advice given from your survey participants. Like you say, we all KNOW what we should do, the problem comes in “DOING” it. As long as we live in this fleshly body we will struggle with wanting what’s best for self. The only way to truly live a happily every after life is to live it every day totally in submission to God and try to let the Spirit be more in control than the flesh – and that is easier said than done. But – it can be done. Love is a choice. To continue loving is a choice. Choose love – that’s what these blogs say to me. Choose to give of yourself. We will reap what we sow, if we give love, we will reap love. If we give nothing, we get nothing. Thanks for making us all think.”
“Worked for a friend yesterday shampooing for her…watched an older man wheel in his wife, an extrememly tired older lady who just went through surgery having a road put through her femur bone and her knee cap taken out. Watched him pick her up in and out of the wheel chair to get in and out of the car, he talked about bathing her, learning how to do laundry for the first time, cooking, etc. Anyways as I watched all this so much ran through my mind…It’s not about money, jobs, cars, age or success. It’s about love and at the end of my life I hope that I will still have that love and someone to take care of me or I hope I can be that somone! Also I spoke with another older lady who got married at 17 and after 50/60 years of marriage her and her husband are still together and she said its because God being in their relationship all the years and every Friday night her and her husband have a date night.
Well, I would have looked right past all of this without your blogs and all you’ve been writing about.”
An interesting week to say the least.
