These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

What does it take to live and grow together?

It takes all that one has from the core of his being.

It takes the desire to draw from all one has and use it to probe deep into his partner's soul.

It takes commitment to see each obstacle through to the very end.

No one ever said it would be easy but its worth is more than can be imagined.

There must always be understanding and concern for the other's point of view ~ this I know must be striven for. Evil selfishness will take every chance it gets to destroy all that has been achieved. Know what it feels like, recognize it and cut it down before it has a chance to take hold and grow, replacing the love-bond already developed being nurtured to maturity.

Tears must sometimes be necessary ~ don't fear them but work through them for "joy comes in the morning".

Life together means life together for the partners involved. Keep in perspective all other relationships. All relationships are important so don't let them die, but also remember that the relationship between spouses is a special one indeed.

Keep it special, keep it growing,
for life together is a many splendid thing.
