Grope

In marriage, couples must take the time to talk.  This was an easy task when you first met.  I am sure you and your spouse spent hours just sitting together talking.  In those days it didn’t seem like work, it was effortless, and you probably enjoyed each moment learning more and more about you’re soon to be spouse.  Take it from me you don’t have to stop learning.  Have you ever wondered what you don’t know about your spouse, even after all your time together?  We can spend hours studying the stock market, or hobbies like cooking or fishing, but come up short with knowledge about our spouse.  When something interests us we often take the time and energy to learn more about it.  Why not take the time and energy to learn more about your spouse.  There is a pretty good chance the person you knew at twenty five is different at thirty five.  We all change with age, hopefully for the better.  Whether you know everything or not, the learning process will drive you closer as a couple, and you may find that you don’t know as much as you thought.  This is not unlike a Christians search for a deeper knowledge and relationship with Christ.  Paul’s call to the Men of Athens was to “seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us (Acts 17:27-NAS)”.  A Christian should constantly be pursuing the things of Christ, or groping after, never satisfied with the knowledge attained, always seeking more because of the wonderful blessing that exist in Him.  I wonder what marriages would be like if we were never satisfied with the knowledge we have of our spouse and were constantly seeking (groping) for more.

Very good, Donnie. Even after 33 years of marriage I still learn things about Larry. I appreciate that we do change, hopefully for the better, and just because we've been together all these years doesn't mean things don't change and we need to catch up with where we are this year. Love you, honey, and am very proud of the work you are doing to help marriages.
