Ahhh the good old days when people threw rice instead of throwing shade. One of the good days is definitely that first walk as husband and wife. Not to mention the honey moon. Good stuff. I don’t think that too many of us really ponder the bad and the ugly. It’s easy to get through the bad by being the bigger person and apologizing during the first argument or overlooking the fact that your significant other never cleans up after themselves and forgiving them for being late for dinner after you’ve stood over a hot stove for hours preparing their favorite meal, only for them to come home and go straight to bed. The real kicker is the UGLY! U.G.L.Y. you don’t have an alibi you ugly! Yeah, yeah you ugly! (I can hear the cheerleaders screaming this loud and clear) How do you handle the situation when there’s not an alibi and you have to face the ugly? Truth that is… You are fighting for your marriage alone. It has gotten so bad that your spouse rarely comes home because they’re too busy gambling the bill money away. He or she has a drug addiction and spent the rent money getting high. They’ve cheated and you’ve cheated, trust is broken along with hearts.You try to communicate but it just goes in one ear and out the other. You can’t get an alibi so you’ll take alimony instead. It’s so much easier to give up than to remember those vows. Proverbs 14:1 says “A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands”. That is something to think about… Sometimes building our home means going the extra mile when your spouse gives up. Sometimes building our home means getting on our knees and praying for your spouse soul even when they’ve done the unthinkable. Sometimes building our home means we have to love unconditionally and forgive constantly like God forgives us. Sometimes building our home means running to our significant other’s rescue when we’d rather run them over.🚙🚒🚨🚔 Sometimes we have to stand alone and lift up holy hands to pray although lifting our hands to grab that cast iron skillet to knock some sense into them is very tempting. The ugly is a hard pill to swallow but we have to do it. Don’t fight fire with fire and tear down your home. Fight fire with faith and prayer until the ugly is gone. It’s not easy but it’s worth it.
