You see a cross, some hills, clouds, fog and green grass, and ocean too.
Look closer laser your focus to the cross.
Now what do you see?
I know, again the obvious but look closer.
These are simply two pieces of wood nailed together to form a cross.
Just like marriage, two people joined together forming a cross.
Hmmm....see it now?
See how different these two pieces are.
One a little rugged the other more knotted.
Nevertheless these two are fastened together with simply some nails.
Nails that have penetrated the surface went past the core and directly through to the other with the same level of penetration,
If that wood could talk, it would probably scream due to the level of pain it takes to hold them together.
But after years and years of being tried in the fire I'm here to tell you it's not.
Don't get me wrong I absolutely, unconditionally, unapologetically love and adore my hubby.
However I have learned a few things from marriage.
Lesson 1. We are two different people
Lesson 2. I must humble myself at times for the better meant of marriage
Lesson 3. It takes two to tango ( we must both be willing to work on it)
Lesson 4.Love will truly cover a multitude of sins
(It really is ok, that he didn't take the trash out last night, as long as he gets to it sooner than later).
These lessons were sharp for me. But the more I was willing to work on me I found that my relationship with my hubby was no longer parallel but we had intersected forming the Cross.
Thank you Lord for saving me.
