Pray every day,
To God Almighty,
That concerning life, and love, and happiness,
You will be granted God's grace and wisdom,
So long as you both shall live!
Beyond the cloudy sky is the bright
Beyond the towering mountain is a peaceful valley.
And beyond a day gone badly is a good day awaiting.
So always look with faith to a bright
As water is to the swimmer,
As air is to the bird,
So is God Almighty to your marriage.
Always keep Him at the center of
Like fresh baked bread is to the nose,
Like a rosy-red apple is to your eyes,
So also is kindness to each other.
All three awaken interest and desire.
A foolish General makes his own battle
A foolish Coach makes his own game plan,
And a foolish husband fails to consult his wife.
All three need wise advice and consultations.
You have one mouth and two ears,
So use them proportionately.
Some men fail with riches,
Some men fail with knowledge,
But no man fails with a Godly wife.
The opposite of a winner is a loser,
The opposite of a proponent is an opponent,
The opposite of an ally is an enemy,
But the opposite of the husband is
not his wife.
The marriage succeeds when it is
Always hold each other up as winners.
As rain is to a garden,
As sunshine is to a flower,
So are kisses on her neck.
Like an orchestra's music is to deaf
Like an artist's painting is to blind eyes,
So also is a warm hug after a cold word.
All three mean nothing to the receiver
until they are healed.
After the ninth inning, the baseball
game is over,
After the forth quarter, the football game is over,
After the third period, the hockey game ends.
But a forgiving spirit makes a marriage
As a mask covers the face,
As clothing covers the body,
As a hat covers the head,
So also anger covers up grief and
It is better to expose your tears
than your anger.
A flood of tears is better than one angry word.
Real people do cry!
It is better to cry a little now,
Than it is to cry a lot later!
Three things are just alike:
Eternal bliss in the Paradise of
Spiritual rest in the hand of the living God,
And a happy marriage blessed by God Almighty.
It is better to be broken down, out
And stranded along side of the road
In the middle of the desert, in 110-degree heat,
Than to continue arguing with your spouse.
It is better to be trampled by horses
than to threaten divorce.
You will heal faster from eating a
hot coal of fire,
Than your spouse will heal from an insult,
So eat a hot coal of fire instead.
It is better to tie a thousand bricks
to your back,
Than to curse your life with a divorce.
It is better to go for a long walk,
Than it is to have a short argument.
It is better to be silent than it
is to win an argument.
Do you want to be married to the loser?
If it's work, take turns!
If it's no fun, take turns!
If it's too hard, take turns!
If there's not enough, take turns!
If there's too much, take turns!
If it's pleasurable, take turns!
Wives and Husbands do not come with
So remember to help each other out.
Never forget to say, "Thank-You" ...and
If you want an irreplaceable best
Be an irreplaceable best friend.
Never lose your faith, your hope and
your love on the same day.
If you do, call for a "time out" and a "do-over"!
Rain in the desert is just like forgiveness...
Both cause life to grow again.
Earn each other's respect, except
on a really bad day,
Then give respect to each other freely.
When your spouse deserves respect
least of all,
This is the time when they need it most of all.
In the time of greatest need,
Somebody will be there for your spouse.
Be that somebody!
Acting in a kind and loving way,
Is better than saying the words "I love you!"
But both are essential.
God is more important than marriage,
Marriage is more important than work,
Marriage is more important,
Than the children that come from the marriage.
Without a happy marriage, the children
will suffer loss.
Never forget these words:
"So they are no longer two, but one.
Therefore what God has joined together,
Let man not separate."
The very same God,
Who joined you together,
Is the very same God,
Who keeps you together.
Never test God to see whether you
To keep the marriage together,
Based upon your own passion, desire, and affection ...without His help.
What God Almighty has given to you
Is far greater than what you could devise
Out of your own cleverness and ingenuity.
Your choices are clear:
Seek God first in your lives and
Or seek another road and suffer loss!
Put loyalty to God above all,
Put loyalty to each other next,
And the God of
Will bless your marriage!
Each and every day.
Turn to God Almighty.
For grace and wisdom!
And never forget that you are in truth.
Granted God's grace and wisdom!
