in the wake of the Kris Humphries / Kim Kardashian divorce, it saddens me to hear that they are splitting after such a short period of time. marriage is intended to be a permanent bond between to people who vow to love, honor and respect each other. true love CAN stand the test of time, through the ups and downs of life, as evidenced by this beautiful couple who died in each others’ arms after 72 years of marriage. so beautiful:
the Bible tells us that “love never fails” (1 Cor 13:8). so if the former is true, what went wrong? the ‘what went wrong’ is us. we are imperfect people and will not always do or say the right thing. as with anything, however, you get out of it whatever you put into it.
love inspires me and most other people on this planet to do whatever it is that we do in life. along that road of life, we all will come across some speed bumps and potholes and even construction delays. love is wonderful, beautiful, amazing, heartwarming, and every other word that you can use to describe it. but it does require work.
REMEMBER – the way we navigate today’s bumps determines how we will fare when tomorrows’ bumps arrive. it requires ‘stick-to-itiveness’ (didyaknow, that’s actually in the dictionary!)
will you fall down and walk away/give up or get up and try it again?
have an AMAZING day!
