Yesterday's post, Laundry Piles, was about fixing up your bedroom.
What I found in looking at my own bedroom is that I have a bad case of the "piles." If I don't immediately know what to do with something (or I don't want to take the time for it), I set it on a pile. That makes for a very cluttered look.
I got to thinking about the concept and I realized that any part of your life can get a bad case of the "piles" ... including your marriage relationship.
If you don't know how to (or don't want to) deal with something it's easy to park it off to the side. In time you wind up with "piles" of issues sitting around making your marriage feel cluttered with unsolved issues. That makes for a difficult relationship that is a far cry from the peaceful, loving relationship that marriage can be.
The lesson? Deal with problems and issues in as timely a manner as you can. Don't let them pile up and damage your marriage.
