Same Goal, Different Routes

road

Well, we had a flight scheduled to Minneapolis this week. I made the flight and you didn’t.

I missed my plane. Although, it wasn’t irresponsibility, it was a snowstorm I got caught in.

We got there eventually together. We gave our seminar that night, but nobody would have expected we got to the same place via different routes that day.

We never imagined it. The same is true sometimes in married life, because we will have a common goal we are working toward, but my personality or my circumstances causes me to get there in a different way.

I think that is a great point to remember in our marriages. We might have the same goal in mind, but our personalities may cause us to take a different route. Think about that in your own relationship.
