To never stop seeking the Lord and His will for your marriage.
I know we may never have the perfect marriage or relationship or ever feel like we have this marriage thing figured out, and that’s good. I want to constantly be working to make our marriage better not just as newlyweds but our whole lives. The minute we become stagnant or complacent in our marriage, there is no growth or refining.
It’s OK to not have this marriage thing all figured out. I think the secret is no one ever truly does.
