on marriage: advice for our friends

God brought you two together.

He is Love.

On your own you will not be able to accomplish what you can with His grace.

There will be days when you will want to give up. Maybe there already have been a few of those in your story.

You will see how He grows you through those times
     and most of all how He teaches you more about His heart and what Love is.

Love is a choice and when we give all we can to surrender our selves, our wants, our pride, and we fight for togetherness, He richly blesses.

Even if our 100% feels like we're on our hands and knees crawling through muddy obstacles like soldiers in a battle,
     do. it. anyway.

It won't be easy and it won't always be pretty, but there will be beauty.

We will be praying for your daily choosing of togetherness. We don't have perfect advice to make sure you'll get your "Happy Ever After," but after our own nearly 12 years of marriage, we know a heck of a lot about Grace.

Choose His grace and He'll lead you.

Rich blessings and much love.
