Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #107 Weddings…

Spring and summer brings a multitude of public events – graduations, anniversary parties, weddings and wedding receptions. I just wrote a card to some friends who celebrate their twentieth anniversary – good for them. Another couple I know celebrates sixty-six years this summer – amazing. In July I have a wedding to perform almost every weekend. For those who have found joy in marriage – bravo. It is not an easy estate to survive in the world today. I always laughed at Red Skelton and one time I laughed and understood a deep truth when he said, “All men make mistakes, but married men find out about them sooner.”

Laughter, faith, humility, friendship, directness, truth, common interests, sprinkled with passion can make for a great and lasting relationship. It is always interesting to hear couples say that they married their “best friend.” It’s better to grow together than to grow apart or merely endure. Rodney Dangerfield guffawed, “It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won’t drink from my glass.” I can hear women say, “Dogs have cleaner mouths.” The best quote I read as I’ve been thinking about all the weddings I’ll be doing this summer, is from Martin Luther, who said, “Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.” Amen.
