If You Bear Through the Rough Times

I found an old journal of mine.

It humbled me.

I’d recommend it for everyone,

to reflect.

In my reflection,

I saw again how loving and patient my wife is,

even since the very beginning.

I see the groundwork, the hurdles we faced

the obstacles that continue to rear their ugly head.

But over those obstacles I see her,

smiling,

and I see you LORD

and I keep going.

Relationships never stop,

they take work.

The outcome is glorious,

if you bear through the rough times.
