HOLY MATRIMONY 600
An interesting question just popped
into my mind, and I thought that I
would ask it for all of you husbands
Are you learning to live with you wife more,
or are you learning to live with her less?
Now I anticipate some wise wag to reply,
"I'm learning to live with my wife, more or less."
But, that's not exactly what I had in mind.
What was inferred by the question, was
the supposition that marriage partners
should grow together...closer and closer..
Only then does holy matrimony occur.
Marriages were meant to be continually beautiful.
The Lord is glorified by and through holy matrimony.
How does you grow your marriage this night?
Together...or apart? Holy marriages take time
A blissful state of matrimony takes a lifetime
Of work, worship and prayer.
