Sow to Grow

“For Love is patient. . .”

Growing a marriage is like growing a garden: you have to sow to grow, and you must constantly eliminate weeds in order to succeed.  Each day (or week) make a conscious effort to sow one seed of love into your relationship, and make the same effort to eliminate one weed or bitter root from your heart.  Weeds are deadly sources of conflict such as bad mental and physical habits or resentments that you harbored from the past. This week I am sowing the seed of patience, and rooting out the weeds of impatience and perfectionism that can hurt my marriage. This week, which seed will you sow, and which weed has to go?
