Today’s episode is the final one in the Ready, Set, Grow series. We’re talking off the cuff about our own 27-year journey of growing old together. We hope you join us today as we share the flaws we each had to overcome, and what it took for us to get to a place where growing old together led us to deeper love and connection.
Growing old together is one of the things as a couple you should anticipate, but it requires having an intentional mindset to actually do it well. When you stand firm in your covenant and choose to honor it by facing hard times, going through all the ups and downs together, that’s when you can anticipate growing old together to produce a deeper, more connected love than ever before.
A gift of marriage is to be able to lean on one another, to help one another overcome hard things, to support and encourage one another in becoming the person God wants you each to be. When you spend a lifetime together doing those exact things, you will find that as the years roll by, your love truly does get deeper and your marriage just feels comfortable and secure.
Growing old together is a journey that sparks some hesitancy and perhaps a little fear, but also one that should spark excitement about spending your entire life with the one you love the most.
This is why we hope you always remember to Enjoy the Journey!
