Woven Threads

I read this book that kind of struck me this week. It says, “Chains do not hold a marriage together. It’s threads. Hundreds of tiny threads that sow people together through the years.” Don’t you think there is a lot of truth in that?


I really like that, because what it does is give a lot of sacredness to the ordinary moments we share. Doesn’t have to be the big things; it’s just our daily life.


It’s not the big heavy chains of commitment. It’s those little threads, those memories we share that we weave together.


Having dinner together. Having date night. Taking a walk.


With our kids, all the experiences. Friend, consider the tiny threads that weave the two of you together today.
