To Love and Be Loved

weddingToday is our wedding anniversary.

Our marriage is a testimony to the greatest gift two people can give each other: The ability to love, and be loved.

It is rare today for people to own the hurts and broken places in their lives. Instead, we let them own us.

Rarer still are those willing to then fully turn them over to the Lord and actively pursue His health and wholeness.

Marianne and I chose to do so before we married, and continue to do so in our marriage.

Even if your marriage lacks that foundation, it is never too late.

But it’s always your choice.

Make the effort. Give each other the gift of pursuing emotional health and wholeness, so you both can truly love, and be loved.

It’s worth it!
