Choose to fight for your marriage today because chances are, no one else is. 

A blessed marriage is not based on "luck" but on determined minds set on: loving the unlovable, serving when it is undeserved, and submitting when it makes more sense not to.

What I'm reading? The book of Ecclesiastes

When you make a vow to God, do not delay in fulfilling it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it... And do not protest to the temple messenger, "My vow was a mistake." Ecclesiastes 5:4-6

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up... Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Ecclesiastes 7:14

There are SO many great verses in Ecclesiastes about finding joy in your life- this is a gift from God (5:19). If God truly is a loving God, through all that we go through (good and bad). Commit to His loving Word. Commit to the vows you have made. In a world of much more than just 50 shades of gray, Gods word is black and white.
