Dare I say that marriage is not the fairy tale we dream it will be–not for any of us. The highs of marriage are breathtaking…but the lows are, too.
Sometimes I can hear a song like Casting Crowns’ “Broken Together” fifty times before I hear it in a moment of grace. Casting Crowns has been a favorite Christian band of mine ever since their music helped me cling to my faith as a young model living in Manhattan (a post or two coming one day on that experience!).
While the days are long and the crosses heavy for Michael and me some days, God has brought us through some tough things. We have been broken together in some significant ways so far in our marriage, but it’s amazing how wonderful being healed together can be as God leads you out on the other side of the valley of death.
“Together we are in love with God. God has for His purposes drawn us together so that we might find our salvation in each other’s presence, and that together we might fulfill a common mission.” -Fr. Robert Barron
