person writingSo often, I just let life happen; I go from one task to another, one phone call to the next, one meal at a time from the fridge to the table. No thought. No planning. Just living one minute to the next .... I heard a saying once that haunts my mind every time I reach the whirlwind finish of another year.

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” I would add, “If you make a plan and don’t carry it out, you are living in a fantasy world where anything can happen – but nothing of importance ever does.”

Trees and mountainsI have written a series of articles comparing marriage to an Aztec battle where Hernando Cortéz and his army burned their boats to give themselves no escape. They must have victory or perish with the enemy.

Marriage is like that. We must burn our boats at the altar and give ourselves no escape. It must be an eternal commitment if the marriage is going to be successful. It is simply a “do-or-die” situation.

bible quote on a bookIn the last few articles, I have focused on “burning boats” at the beginning of marriage, leaving no escape routes. I have written about burning boats and building new ones. There is one more sealer that must be put on new boats to keep them floating in the turbulent waters of adversity where every marriage must float.

That covering is a sealant that comes from unflinching courage. The kind of courage I am talking about is the “young shepherd’s courage.” You remember the story of David and Goliath.
