Marriage…After a Spouse’s Death

Dave Kauffman, Leola, PA

God wants our marriages to be a picture of the relationship Christ has with His church. (Ephesians 5:22-28)  Do you sometimes question God’s goodness?  Does it seem as if your picture is marred or is taking too long to complete?  Do you envy others who seem to have a perfect picture?  None of our pictures will be exactly like any other couple’s picture. But as we allow God to paint our pictures, each one can be a masterpiece.   May we encourage one another to portray the picture that God desires for each of us.
