Love is the Secret Code of Marriage:

Into Me See

"Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him." – Matthew Henry

Marriage is all about mutual love and respect for one another. These do not necessarily come naturally. That is why it is important to continually put this in the face of one another. We need to keep working at it and giving one another place (space) to grow.

We all come into the marriage with baggage that tends to distort our ability to love and/or respect. However, that is no excuse for not working at it. We need to get rid of the idols that tend to distort our view of one another. And, accept and get to know the person we are with. Then, grow to be the person who evokes the response we desire from our partner. For in life, we do not necessarily get what we want, but rather, that which we attract by who we are, or are becoming.

Who do you have to be to evoke the love and respect you crave? What adjustments do you need to start making today? What preconceived notions are standing in the way of you fully accepting your partner, for who he/she is? It’s time to get rid of the weeds. It’s time to trim the garden. No one else is going to do it for you. You can and you will. Get about beautifying the garden of your marriage.
