A year later that wonderful gift doesn’t look so great anymore. It’s not as perfect as they once thought. After staring at it every day, they begin to see flaws and imperfections…the newness has faded and they don’t want it any longer.
One of the greatest gifts, you will ever receive, comes from The Lord and it’s your spouse. God has searched the world, for just the right one for you. The day you received your spouse was wonderful. You couldn’t find anything wrong with them, they were perfect. Now after a couple of years, you see their imperfections. You critique every inch of them. Your list of exceptions are five pages long, but let me enlighten you…Your gift is human. They will speak their mind if pushed, they will bleed if they’re cut, they can’t grant you joy, they are human.
Today receive your gift as what it is. Treasure it, take care of it, adore, protect, and love it with all your heart. Then let God handle all the other details.
