What is an awesome marriage"? It may mean something different to one person than it does to another. For me an "awesome marriage" is one where my wife and I grow together. It is a place where I can be totally be myself and still be loved and accepted. It is a place where we embrace each other's differences instead of letting them pull us apart. For my wife, Nancy, and I, it is a place where we purposefully each day try to put God first and each other second. We have been marred a ling time but we have not always had an awesome marriage. In fact, at times, we have had a pretty rocky marriage. We have been on the brink of divorce, we have gone to bed angry with each other, and we both have said hurtful things to each other. But over the years we have persevered. We made a commitment to each other to never use the word divorce in our marriage again. If we cannot resolve an issue before bedtime, we set it aside until morning. We can still, at times, say hurtful things to each other but we are so much quicker to say, 'I am sorry' than we used to be. Having an 'awesome marriage" takes a lot of work but I promise you it is worth the effort.
