Summer vegetables and summer marriages are both delightful. In a summer marriage life is relaxed. You have a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction, and connection. There is trust and communication. Couples who have a summer marriage realize that they must keep the weeds out of their garden. So, they read books and share ideas. They attend marriage seminars and workshops. They pray for God’s wisdom and seek to speak each other’s love language. They recognize that marriage was God’s idea and that the attitude of Christ in us, is what makes marriage work. Two selfish people will not have a summer marriage. Love – looking out for each other’s interest – is what keeps the weeds out of the garden of marriage.
