Welcome to the school called marriage!

Are you married? If Yes, welcome to the school called marriage:
A school where you will never graduate.
A school without a break or a free period.
A school where no one is supposed to drop out.
A school, which you will attend every day of your life.

A school where there is no sick leave or holidays.
A school founded by God,
on the foundation of Love.The walls are made out of trust.
The door is made out of acceptance.
The windows are made out understanding.
The furniture is made out of blessings.
The roof is made out of faith.Before you forget,
You are just a student not the principal.
Christ is the principal.
Even in times of storms,
Don’t be unwise and run outside.
Remember this school is the safest place to be.Never go to sleep,
Before completing your assignments for the day.
Never forget the C-word, Communicate.
Communicate to your classmate,
And also communicate to the Principal.

If you find out something in your classmate who is ur spouse
That you do not appreciate,
Remember your classmate is also just a student,
Not a graduate.
God is not finished with her/him yet.
So take it as a challenge and work on it together.

Do not forget to study,
Never read your Bible (the main textbook),
But study it.
Start each day with a sacred assembly,
And end it the same way.

Sometimes you will feel like not attending classes,
Yet you have to.
When tempted to quit,
Find courage in the Lord to continue.

Some tests and exams may be tough,
Remember the Principal knows how much you can bear.
But still, it is a school better than any other.
It is one of the best schools on earth.
Joy, peace and happiness accompany each lessons of the day.

Different subjects are offered in this school,
Yet love is the major subject.
After all the years of theorizing about it,
Now you have a chance to practice it.

To be loved is a good thing,
But to love is a greatest privilege of them all.
Marriage is a place of love,
So love your spouse.

When tempted to raise your voice,
Let Love hold your mouth.
Let Love overthrow pride and selfishness,
And let Love reign in your house.

Do not hold back any Love.
But go all the way.
Love as though that’s your only hope for your survival,
And it is.

A friend N who had been married for decades posted it. I decided to share because sometimes I find being married overwhelming and challenging It`s hard work that need lots of patients, understanding, Love and God grace.
Have awesome day.
