Murder, Maybe

I once laughed out loud many years ago when I read an interview with Ruth Bell Graham, wife of Billy Graham. I can't remember what publication the interview was published in, but I do remember her witty observation, "Billy and I have never entertained the thought of divorce - murder, maybe - but never divorce." I absolutely loved the brutal honesty of such a profoundly revered woman of the faith.Of course there are times in marriage where your spouse drives you nuts and you drive them nuts. But the covenant we make to stay in the fight, to be there the next day, and the day after that next day is the foundation that makes room for two disagreeable people to reconcile, and through reconciliation develop a deeper intimacy and understanding of one another.
