Love will keep us together

Love & Marriage 

Looks as though we have it all together doesn’t it?  Truth is sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t, fact is we just keep going forward working on it day by day.

Some of my favorite quotes- that have helped me keep moving forward;

“Anyone who Imagines that Bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise.” 

“Life is just like an old time rail journey … delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”

“Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in Whom we believe. And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.”

“It is a time to be considerate and good, decent and courteous toward one another in all our relationships.”

“My plea is that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we ‘accentuate the positive.’ I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort.”

“Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great purpose in heart.” 

As we all have seen “Love” is not the only thing we need to keep it all together, we need to have tolerance, be  patient, a willingness to keep our mouths shut so we don’t say something that is not nice, and a remember that the “Happily ever After” does not come without a price. Life was never all about sunshine and roses for a fairy-tale princess. Remember the poison apple, being locked in a tower, being unfairly treated by her step family after her father had passed away. We each have to experience our own adversity, we like the princesses have to learn that growth and strength come from overcoming challenges. Overcoming challenges with our spouses and family will therefore strengthen those relationships as well. And when all is said and done we will get our “happily Ever After”
