Justin: “Is this ice cream in the fridge?” (laughing)
Megan: “Why yes my love, it is.” (shaking my head)
That’s just a glimpse into how we’ve been living life over the past 6 weeks. Our schedule has been so busy and hectic that putting ice cream in the fridge is just par for the course lately. We’ve been quiet here because, well, we’ve had lots of things going on in life. That’s why today I’m drawing a marriage analogy from a book I read our children before bed last night. (If that’s not calling it in I don’t know what is!)
The book was about a chameleon who wanted a color of his own. No matter what he tried he could find no solace as his color always changed. Then one day he met another chameleon. They decided that as long as they stayed together they would always be alike.
“And so they remained side by side. They were green together and purple and yellow and red with white polka dots.” A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni
Life is real. At times it’s full of hardships, struggles and pain. Sometimes the real of life slaps you in the face and almost knocks the wind out of you. It’s for this reason God has given the gift of marriage. In His infinite wisdom He knew that two are better than one (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12). Justin and I both believe we are better together than we are alone and that in order to walk in strength in the world we have to do it side by side. We turn green together, yellow together, red together. That’s marriage, turning to one another during the good, the bad and everything in between. Thanks for reading and sticking with us during our absence. We hope to be back to posting regularly very soon.
