A conversation my Husband had with a hard leaning liberal yesterday. L: We should just get rid of the senate then! H: Do you even know what the senate does or why we have it? L: Seems to me all they do is stall progress. H: So that's a no then? Have you read the constitution at all? L: . . . H: Let me put it this way *Slaps the hood of the car* I couldn't fix this engine if I had not studied it...how are we ever going to fix the government if we don't study the manual? Don't you think you would want a mechanic that had read the manual? Don't you think a system of Government is a little bit more complicated than a car's engine? L: Okay you're right I'll go home and read the constitution lol (She took it really well and even laughed it off saying she would read the constitution now)

Excerpt ---- Since when did we start treating potential partners as completed checklists, dished out by a cosmic espresso machine with a dollop of whipped cream and a brown paper napkin? There is crucial value in recognizing and prioritizing non-negotiable qualities, like spiritual leadership, kindness, and faithfulness. I’m not suggesting we deemphasize those — far from it. But when the way a woman dresses, the kind of job a man has, or the way he sets the table becomes a box to check, love becomes a self-serving enterprise. What if, instead of an instrument for our own gratification, we saw the other person as a soul to sanctify and be sanctified? Like any friendship or relationship between human beings, marriage is a process of two people making each other better, refining one another, and choosing to make sacrifices. The baselines are vital, but more helpful than a magic formula are hard work and a mutual commitment to serve.
