Show Us Your Life - Marriage Advice

Today I am participating the Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life series. I do this every once in a while mostly because I love going through and reading all of the others! It's fun to get ideas, advice, and see how others do things.


Today's topic is marriage advice. I have been married for over fourteen years and am not pretending to have it all figured out or that I have a perfect marriage. I don't know that there is such a thing. Maybe that is my advice...don't pretend. We're not perfect. We get on each other's nerves sometimes. We even have fusses and different opinions. However, the fact is that when we married, we married forever. We have to find a way to forgive and meet in the middle.


My advice is nothing new. In fact, it is very old. Bible old. When I was asked to paint this canvas a while back, it was like my own thoughts in someone else's words. Forgiving each other's faults because of your love...I couldn't have said it better myself!

It also helps that we enjoy each other's company. We laugh a lot. We are opposites, so instead of arguing and trying to change each other, we balance each other out. We have date nights. Now I am off to do some reading. I can't wait to see all of the advice!

I love the bible verse on your plague. One can start and end their day with a quick glance with this wonderful verse.

I love the painting! Great advice. Hubs and I are opposites too :)

Not trying to change each other and loving each other the way they are is huge. I wish I had learned that a lot earlier in my marriage. Keep up the good work!
