I chose to write on why the recession has strengthened our marriage this month for Marriage Monday. Eddie and I have been on a financial roller coaster since last December. Down, down, down, then slowly going back up, now, dropping back down at a fast rate of speed. Our hearts beat faster, as the money goes down faster, but the bills stack up faster. But, the beautiful thing, our love for each other grows more daily. We realize that bills are forever, money is not going to last, but our love will remain, burning brightly, keeping us warm, and holding on to each other, and our gracious, loving, caring, always providing, heavenly Father.
