#3 Grace, Grace and More Grace

in the generous life

I’m “running” in the CMBA half marathon (blogging daily from Oct 1st to 13th) by writing “13 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage.”

 

13 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage

#3 – In every marriage there are two imperfect people. Live and give grace.

Your husband will fail you and you will fail him. There will be moments of thoughtlessness and selfishness, but you can’t let that distract you from building your marriage. (I’m not saying don’t deal with problems, I’m trying to put those moments of humanity in perspective.)

It really is a bit like tending a garden. There are going to weeds and bugs and such. Deal with them with as much grace as you can manage and continue to plant, water and harvest.

Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live.  Jackie Windspear

i so loved this post, even the comparison to gardening was amazing, couldn’t have said it better myself :) Thanks Lori. I guess your marathon blogging is going to bring about some marathon changes :) The more we are reminded the more we change, thanks again.

Great point about perspective. I’m finding that letting time go by before reacting is helpful in creating a buffer of perspective, and then very little seems important enough to gripe about.
