Privileges of a thriving marriage
Nobody likes rules. Let me say this another way. Nobody likes to be told what to do.
Furthermore, nobody wants to be following a set of rules feeling like they have to live life a certain way.
Do you agree?
A couple of weeks ago I visited a church and while at the lobby we met the Pastor and shook hands and chatted for a few minutes.
During our casual conversation I learned a real truth regarding marriage. He said: "Marriage is not for you to be happy, it's for you to be holy, cause it will pull the crap out of you." I love simple, down to earth biblical truth, don’t you? LOL
Communication in a marriage relationship is one of those things that we can read about, be counseled about and still have to learn to communicate with each other.
Much of society refers to “truth” as relevant. This concept is often used when someone or a group prefer to believe something according to their own standards and ways of interpretation.
Regardless of what anyone thinks “truth” is, one thing is for sure, truth is always true, no matter how you slice it.

It was in a cold Valentine’s Day, in 1988 when I got engaged. This was the climax of our 12 month friendship and our six month dating relationship.
It was a Sunday morning. I asked (my then girlfriend) if she would go to church with me that day. She complied. Her parents did too.
But I thought I wouldn’t make things too obvious. So I invited her to breakfast before church. She thought that was weird, but she was happy to go since we never had enough time to spend together during the week.

In my driving lifetime I’ve had more than a dozen cars – some new and most of them used or old.
Currently, we have three vehicles that are getting up there in miles. I enjoy driving one of the cars, a 2001 Acura Tl 3.2. Nothing fancy, but it sure has great pick-up.
With all its great pick-up and luxury items, this car has given me two warning signs so far. The latest one was very aggravating.
For example, one day I dropped my son off at work. The car was in park.
