Forty years ago, I had no idea what marriage would really be like. Couple that with the fact that when I took the plunge, I was not walking in step with the commands of the Creator. In fact, I was in full-scale rebellion to the two Great Commandments and the Ten Commandments, and I was making decisions based on thoroughly humanistic standards.
A funny thing happened on this marriage journey. After almost seven years of floundering together to try to make our relationship work, we collided head-on with the living God. To say we were not seeking Him is an understatement. Yet, find us He did. Our lives as individuals and our commitment as a couple were transformed.
