1st Monday Every Month at Chrysalis
Want this button?

Marriage is hard
Feelings get hurt
Mistakes made in anger
Leave you face down in the dirt
Why do we expect
So much from our spouse?
When we’re less than perfect
Flaws we’re not without
It’s hard to love
Someone selfish like me
I want acts of grandeur
To soothe my insecurities
But why should I give
Any less than I want
My God loves me daily
Hold back love – he does not
So even when it’s hard
I will love every day
The way Christ commands
In a patient and kind way
I will not be proud, rude or self-seeking
When I need to change
I’ll let God do his tweeking
To make me a wife
Who loves even when it’s hard
Because true love with God
Is more than a Valentine card
