IMPERFECT, YET LOVING
We checked what others have said about spousal relationship. Here are our top four quotes:
"He's annoying, he's hilarious, he makes me yell, he drives me crazy, he's out of his mind but he's everything I want" (Heartfeltquotes.Bogspot.com).
"We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it - true love" (Robert Fulghum, True Love).
"A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences" (Dave Meurer).
"Our journey isn't perfect, but it's ours" (Quoteburd.com)
At Couples Fellowship, we recognize the delusion of striving for the "perfect marriage" on the one hand, and the temptation of resigning to an unfulfilling relationship, on the other hand. Of course, marriages are made in heaven, but they are enacted on earth. The Psalmist is right: "Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain," (Ps. 127:1, NIV).
YOU ARE INVITED:
Couples Fellowship meets at 6.00 p.m. on the last Saturday of each month.
