A Time To Dance
Another great one by Karen Kingsbury. She never disappoints as far as I'm concerned. This book is about a marriage on the brink of divorce. The happy, Godly, have-it-all couple is falling apart and no one knows it, not even their three children. Their lives became hectic, they each did their own thing and before they knew it they were strangers sleeping in separate rooms with not a thing in common. "It can never be better to divorce, Abby. Never. That's a lie from the pit of hell; mark my words." I think it is the grass is greener in the other pasture kind of mentality and sometimes we don't know what we have till its gone. It divorce is from the pit of hell, Satan's way of breaking apart what God destined for forever. "There will always be naysayers, son. The key is to listen to God's calling. If you're doing that, then everyone else's opinion amounts to little more than hot air." Oh if we could only all take this to heart. What matter is the Voice of Truth, be still and listen. "Maybe that's why God asked couples to wait. So they could learn to love each other. Because over the years it would take that kind of love to make their relationship a beautiful thing." It takes more than physical love to make it through life's trials and learning to love like that is priceless and long lasting. "She was losing this-her family's ability to grieve together, to suffer life's dark and desperate times under the strength of her husband. In a few months she would be on her own, forced to shoulder every major setback and milestone by herself." Oh the strength of a family. I do not know how I would have gotten through some things without my husband and girls. God intends for this community to not be broken, to not be alone through trials. "I don't care if it kills me; I want to love you like an eagle loves his mate. Like the Lord wants me to love you. Holding on until death makes me finally let go." "Fight for your marriages friends. Pray for wisdom and Godly counsel; seek God and find a way back to the place where love began, a place where love can begin again." Such a good book with such good truths. It truly is never too late.
