Then life marches onto the scene – children come, trials pound on their front door, wrinkles are pressed into his forehead and her eyes, and the things that were once “precious” somehow become areas of irritation. “Does he have to slurp his coffee?!” “Can’t he do anything for himself, for heaven’s sake?”
The Lord brought to my mind just recently that He’s answered that prayer of increasing my love for my parson through what I’m calling our “Vision Trial.” The Lord allowed seeing his physical weakness to tender my heart in compassion.

You don’t bother with worrying about the aging process moving in a little too quickly when you’re just thankful you have today to sit together and sip your coffee.
The enemy wants to destroy our marriages. Pray and ask the Lord to help you to love your husband more and more each day. If we ask anything according to His will, he promises to hear us! This is a prayer He will certainly answer!
