Encouraging Your Spouse in a Time of Disappointment

Encouraging Your Spouse in a Time of Disappointment

Things don’t always work out the way we’d like. Life is not fair. We might not like it, but it’s a fact. Life is not fair. (And who said it was supposed to be fair, anyway? That’s just a new-age myth. Give it up.) God writes our story, and sometimes we’d like to change the details, but in the end, I’m sure He has the best, most awesome story for each of us. The best.
