Sometimes back I was thinking about foundations, specifically what it takes to build a strong solid base for a house (marriage) so it lasts a life time.
Not implying that a marriage with weak foundations is automatically headed for failure, God is powerful (when we let Him) and He will build things in as we go along.
But as far as the early years are concerned, a few thoughts came up;
1. Foundations are not pretty to look at..and they are not easy to build.
Takes a lot of hard work, intentional effort and sweat.
