It Comes With Thorns – Read Between The Lines

“Marriage is like life – that it is a field of battle, and not a bed of roses.” Robert Louis Stevenson


Mirrored – Read Between The Lines

As he sat on the sofa, Jack listened to Black Flies by Ben Howard. The song flowed through the house like a river heading to its tributary. Hearing his wife’s car pull into the driveway, he got up.

She disgusted him because of the affair that she was having. He knew, even though she thought it was a secret. Luckily for him, he had arrived home before she did. He did his laundry.

Rape in marriage

No still means no even after I do.

Have a happy summer. 🙂

Love you. Take care. 🙂

An Even Bigger Deal

Bigger than love, marriage, trust and friendship is the will to maintain them.

And now this :-

From a father, Joshua Wooden, to a son, John Wooden, upon his graduation from Grammar School.

Be True To Yourself

Make Each Day Your Masterpiece

Help Others

Drink Deeply From Good Books, Especially The Bible

Make Friendship A Fine Art

Long or short?

I was reading about this man who separated from his wife for another woman. He then dumped that woman and went on to date another one. Still married to his wife. They have been married for 48 years. Hmm.

Would you want, if you had to choose, to have a short, happy marriage or a miserable, long one? Personally, I do not believe in marriage for myself. For others it is okay.

Would you rather have a short, happy life or a miserable, long one?

Would you rather have a short, content period of poverty or a long, frustrated one of richness?

Have a moon morning and a starry night. 🙂

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Somewhere around the world someone is having a birthday. Happy Birthday. 🙂


Have you ever had a song that was stuck on repeat going through your head? You did not hear it playing anywhere. You did not read about it or the person who sang it, but it is there. Ah well. To gnocchi.

I am remembering when I tried to make homemade gnocchi. Followed the recipe to the letter. They floated to the top. They did not look like the store bought kind. I followed the recipe; I said that already. Let us just say that they did not turn out the way they supposed to.

Like life. We make all these plans, going to college and afterwards a good, solid job. Saving enough for this thing or that thing. Following sets of rules before marriage. And what happens, sometimes? With all that planning and doing, nothing turned out the way you wanted to. Maybe in need of a new recipe.

Do Us Part?

Even so we met, and after long pursuit, Even so we joined; we both became entire.

No need for either to renew a suit, For I was flax, and he was flames of fire, Our firm-united souls did more than twine; So I my best beloved’s am; so he is mine. Francis Quarles

Have a moon morning and a starry night. 🙂

Have a lovely, sunflower weekend. 🙂
