Husband for sale!
A 36 year old white male is for sale. He is hardworking, plays with children, loves to do yard work, easy going, laughs a lot, loves good food, goes to church, is active in church, loves music and beauty, is gentle and kind.
All of those good qualities... I think I will keep him. Not for sale anymore.
Sometimes when marriage is going through some rough spots, we think that we rushed into marriage, that maybe if we waited, we could have got a different, better spouse. But truly, every marriage will go through times of uncertainty, sadness, lonesomeness and struggles. It is just part of life. When we get married to that one special person, and then start to live with our spouse, we tend to rub each other, like rocks, molding into each other, yes, sometimes it hurts, sometimes we rather would quit and not go farther. Mostly we turn out OK, more in love, more in tune with each other, more kinder, knowing each other just a bit more.
Yes, all of us have a lot of negative qualities, but just like the list up top, we do have tons of good qualities as well. If we only make a list of all the good things our spouse has, or does, we wont be disappointed. If your marriage is in trouble, or you feel sad and alone, or if its on the brink of a divorce, and you cant possibly list a single good thing about your spouse, list the things that brought you together in the first place. What attracted you in him, what endeared him to you, what made you fall in love with him in the beginning. Think about those things, and I hope it will be enough for you to stay together, and love each other even more.
I Pray to God that He will bring us both together again, to love and to cherish till death do us part.
