I was laying on the grass, gazing into the bright blue sky one afternoon, when I noticed 2 black birds close together above my rose bush full of tall white roses.

I thought these birds were playing, and fanciful, but upon closer inspection, they were hurting each other; dive bombing, and pecking at each other.

I couldn’t help but think at that time in my marriage, “This seems like marriage, always pecking on each other…”

Have you ever wondered if your failing marriage is repairable?

What causes conflict anyway? How can it make you a better person?

And what is God’s part in a successful marriage?

We break all this apart- and then put it back together, just like can be done in your marriage!

Marriage doesn’t have to be a pecking. It can be a fun interplay mid-flight with new scenes and grand adventures with your one and only. And love pecks….

As John Whittier Greenleaf says, “Thee lift me, i lift thee, and we’ll ascend together.
