This Man

He serves tirelessly. He works hard when someone is depending on him. He is faithful to complete any job well. And He does it with joy.

We have had a hard few seasons back to back. We have lacked time to just be us. We have rubbed each other the wrong way and had to apologize and talk through the challenges. But still we are here. We are us. Something we don’t take for granted anymore.

So many losses. So many heartaches. But God. He helps us take the next step keeping our eyes on Him.

Tonight we celebrate being home together, enjoying a meal hot off the grill. It’s the little routines that bring comfort; more than the elaborate dates planned.

What challenges are you facing? How is your spouse being stretched? What might you do to bring comfort to him/her in this season? Think simple. Think long-standing comforts. Think specifically. Then do it!

We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. Let’s not let little struggles cloud up our marriage for days on end. Time is too precious.
