A Great Quote!

I stumbled upon this quote today by Martin Luther.  He says, “Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.”  That, right there, is the ticket to a long, happy marriage folks!!!  If we could master that, then we would all fall asleep at night with a smile on our faces.  Sadly, I think that too often we are far too selfish to think about how we are making the other person feel.  One of my older daughters was shocked this week to discover that one of her friends who is from a family with nearly a dozen children was struggling because his parents are getting a divorce after over 20 years of marriage.  She couldn’t believe that after so long together they could call it quites.  It served to confirm in my heart that becoming comfortable in marriage is a deadly poison!  Hmmm, I wonder what I could do to make him hurry home to see me….?????
