Unique & Beautiful!

 

There is no one set of fingerprint that is ugly. Every fingerprint is unique and it has no copy. 

Isn’t that fascinating? It is for me. 

Think about it. Since the day of Adam and Eve, how many people roamed throughout this earth? Countless! And all of us have unique fingerprints because we all are different; even identical twins have different fingerprints, do you know that? 

Just like fingerprints, no two marriages are identical. Every marriage is unique, different and, get this, BEAUTIFUL! 

Our job as married people is to find the God-given unique beauty of our individual marriages and work hard on our unique Eden. 

When we don’t find the beauty of our marriages, we tend to go around and compare our marriages with everybody else and feel depressed and miserable.  

Nature itself tells us about God. We don’t need to go too far to know that God has no Xerox machine because He doesn’t need one. Beauty in difference and variety and absence of monotony is the theme of God’s creation. Our job is to find and enjoy what God has given us.

Decorate Your Marriage

Forgiveness is something a Christian should always do because another name of a Christian is “FORGIVEN!”

We cannot talk about marriage without forgiveness takes the lead. 

I mean, think about it. When two broken, imperfect and messed up people live under the same roof, they create lots of mess in that house. And if this couple doesn’t let forgiveness mark their marriage, destruction of that marriage will be in order. 

We all have problem, don’t we? What kind of problem? A problem of sin! So, as much as we need others’ to forgive us, we always need to be ready to forgive others especially those who live with us. 

So, if you are married, decorate your marriage with genuine and sincere forgiveness. Then you’ll ask yourself why you always find yourself falling in love with, not with the other person, but with your spouse. 

It feels really good! ///

Before You Touch Her Body

Don’t you sometimes, secretly, wish if the Book of Ephesians chapter 5 goes up to verse 34 and says something like:

“Husbands, when your wives come to you with a problem, don’t try to SOLVE your wives’ problem unless they specifically ask you to solve it. Just LISTEN to their heart.” (I know the Bible is complete; I’m just saying)

You see, most men are naturally wired to solve a problem. When their wives come to them with a problem, they jump to solve it disregarding their wives’ heart; what their wives are really saying.

So, Don’t Cry! Period!

When a couple fights or “discusses” an issue, there are so many things that they are to pay attention to so their discussion will build their marriage, not destroy it.  
 
Of course I am not planning to list all the things that, I believe, will help them but I will try to give to both the wife and the husband the one thing they should avoid during a discussion.
 
Ladies first!

“I Love You, Baby”

“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children,  to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” (Titus 2:3-5)
 
You have no idea how much I love this passage!
