"God indeed is my savior; I am confident and unafraid. My strength and my courage is the LORD, and he has been my savior."The Gospel reading is Matthew 19:3-12: where Pharisees ask Jesus about divorce, and my Lord discusses God's view of marriage - and winds that up by saying that marriage is a good idea.
Don't take my paraphrase too seriously: I suggest you follow those links and read the passages yourself.
My wife and I have been married for - let's see. We were married in April of 1982, so it's been over 28 years now. Sometimes it feels like we've been married forever.
That didn't come out quite right.
What I meant was, sometimes I feel like we've always been married - like this is the normal condition for my life.
I'm not a perfect husband - please, don't laugh quite so loud. On the other hand, I'm learning to be better at it. Medication I've been taking since being diagnosed as having major depression has helped - a lot. (March 4, 2010)
Does our faith make our marriage one long emotional high? No.
But because I understand what the Church teaches, it's easier to deal with the the realities of marriage: the joys, the tears, and changing diapers.
Not that I've changed diapers for quite a while now. My son is 14 - and I'm learning what it's like to have a teenage son. It's not quite the same as having teenage daughters.
And that's another topic.
