We are going to have conflict. You can’t live with somebody if you don’t have it. You’re just going to have things that are going to pop up. It is normal, but your commitment to your marriage is greater than that conflict. We are so committed. We’re not going to leave each other without saying goodbye and saying, “How can I pray for you?” I guarantee you, that put a little softer tone on the tension in the room that morning.
I just think of many conversations Rodney and I have had over the seasons of life. It’s beautiful, but that goodnight window, a few minutes again that you’re not rushing off. You’re not going in different directions, but you’re just pausing to make sure you are emotionally connected. That goodnight window is so powerful. Part of what I want to say to you is it’s possible. It’s possible to keep the intimacy in your marriage. It is possible to stay connected in the busyness of life.
