Such wise words! Too often, we treat things like they are ruined, beyond repair, or just broken. That maybe once the dent is there, or a scratch that is noticeable, we no longer give it the care it deserves.
I know that marriage is a frustrating thing, and family life is many things, including pleasant and painful. I also know that they deserve our full attention and devotion. It isn’t always easy, and sometimes we get pretty banged up along the way, but I think these words are true and a good reminder that it might be time to pick this thing up out of the dirt and dust, and give it a good polish.
