As I read and pondered the above statement about marriage, these descriptive verbs from the allegory of the tame and wild olive trees, found in Jacob 5, came flashing into my mind:
And do you know what I say to that??? OUCH!
For because I think that those words sum up marriage - - - and I'm talking a successful, happy marriage!
Because, in my book, marriage is not for the week, nor for the weak.
And for me, marriage has been worth all of that OUCH!
(It really has! I love you, sweetie!) :)
