When Love is Hard

Let’s be honest, love is hard.

It’s been a week. The flowers are wilting and the candy is nearly gone. The sweet messages in the Valentine cards are mostly forgotten.

All that’s not forged through hard love is short-lived.

For most of us, the fragrant aroma of love’s soft side is brief and doesn’t last.  Life gets in the way. Trials and challenges arise.  Instead of sweet messages, words of anger are spit forth. Hard love often leaves a bitter taste.

Why can’t love remain sweet all the time? Why does love have to be so hard?

    Your post is truth that smacks against our culture that says whenever something gets hard just walk away.
    Your comment at my place encouraged me. Thank you so much.

    May we continue to live out a “holy difference” from a world that sets up so many false examples of what love and marriage are all about. :)
