I wrote this over on the Recovery a Marriage Facebook page and it seems to be helpful there so I best tuck it in here. Shortest post on the blog!
“This kept me on the journey to marriage restoration so I’ll share it with you.
I thought of my spouse as being unwell. He had been healthy for years, but now he was sick. I had given him some of those germs. My role was to be as healthy as possible myself and purge the germs. From that foundation I could trust God to give me whatever was needed to keep engaged in the healing power of love for my husband. It’s been the hardest thing I have ever done and possibly the most worthwhile.”
