This pic of my youngest daughter trying to carry her bigger sister is a great visual of what marriage can be like sometimes. Sometimes we just need to take one for the team because we love our spouse and they need us to help relieve a little of life’s pressure. It doesn’t make sense but it’s beautiful in action.
It sums up my marriage in a little square. We take turns being strong for each other. Even in the best of circumstances, life is hard. Even surrounded by so many blessings, life is hard. Of course seasons bring times of rest in between certain challenges but in the end, overall, life is just plain hard! And that’s coming from an eternal optimist!
I love this scripture, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” NLT, Ecc 4:12
I’m thankful God made us to need each other.
