Married to the weather

I live in Oklahoma where the weather is constantly changing.  Today we are expecting strong winds and temps in the 60’s but by the weekend the highs will be in the 40’s.  I grew up in this state so the drastic change is something I am very accustom to.  People in Oklahoma often make the comment, “if you don’t like the weather wait a few minutes”.  Like me, people in Oklahoma are use to the weather.  As a matter of fact, many of us love the change.  I spent several years in Florida and the change in seasons is what I missed most about my home state. 

Like the weather, relationships are often about appreciating the positives and accepting the things we cannot change.    Your spouse has many strong attributes that at times you probably miss.  They meet your needs in many ways that often go unnoticed because of the needs they do not meet.  Learn to appreciate what your spouse does, but also learn to accept and adjust to those things they may not do well.  We didn’t marry perfect people, and neither did they.  To love is to accept both the good and bad.

It would be easy for me to wish I lived in Florida this weekend when the temps fall to the 30’s, but I would sure miss the fall colors and warm fire on a cold day.  I accept the weather in Oklahoma and adjust both my expectations and perceptions.  This is also something I practice every day in my own relationships, and I would encourage you to try and do the same.

John 13:34-35
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.(NKJV)
