Saturday Snippet: Refuse to Give Up

It was a piece of advice we heard while we were dating... A friend was getting married. Both his and his fiance's parents were divorced. The divorces had been difficult and devastating, with the consequences rippling out in the minds and hearts of every member of both families for years. As my friend talked about his own wedding and marriage, he said that the word "divorce" would not be part of their vocabulary. No matter what, they would work it out.

We're going to mess up. We will definitely make mistakes. What we have to do is flat out REFUSE to give up. REFUSE to walk away. REFUSE to throw in the towel. 
-----
And once we've done that, we'll mess up again. We'll make more mistakes - maybe even bigger than the ones before. And then? We remain. Steadfast. Refusing to say "It's over," but instead saying, "I forgive you. Let's move forward from here." Hand in hand. Head held high. Stubborn refusal to give up on this one you love.
