While researching for my current sermon series entitled “Unbelievable Love,” I came across a website named “The 25 Best Marriage Quotes.”  Some of the favorite quotes were:

I love being married. It’s so great to find one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”

The Best marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband.”

There is so little difference between husbands you might as well keep the first.”

The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.  My husband and I have never considered divorce… murder sometimes, but never divorce. -Joyce Brothers”

While I am not sure those quotes are very helpful, here is one from the website that might actually benefit us in our individual relationships:

To keep your marriage brimming with love in the loving cup, whenever you are wrong admit it; whenever you are right, shut up.”

True love knows when to be silent and when to speak up, when to lift up and when to push forward, when to draw near and when to give space.  True love is not annoying, blind, or secretive; it does not give up or put down. True love forgives and asks forgiveness.  True love endures the tests of time.

Have a blessed day,
