I have a wonderful friend who started a Marriage Blog. She is an “almost” counselor…but she really knows her stuff.
Here is a link to her website – Let her know if what she has to say is useful to you. http://makingmarriagemerry.blogspot.com/
Here is a quote that she recently posted:
“If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by. Eternal marriage is just like that. We need to treat it just that way. I pray that we may see it for the priceless gift that it is.”
