The Key

As I've grown older, I've come to realize that life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

 

But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today...that you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where minor things aren't deal-breakers!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship! Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket -- keep it in your own.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

Philippians 4:8

    If everyone read that every day before their feet hit the floor, the world would be a different place! The only person I have control over is ME and I plan to read it again & again. Thanks for sharing another nugget, Coco. XOX
