Failing Marriage
« on: April 07, 2004, 11:58:23 AM »
Friends,

As we approach Pascha, please remember in your prayers my friends Alison and Michael, going through a very rough spot in their relatively new marriage.  Threats of divorce have been thrown around and the whole situation is just incredibly sad and disconcerting.  Please pray for them, that they both grow up and take their vows seriously.  This is a situation where just a little understanding (and some marriage counseling) would go a LONG way.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I'll add Alison and Michael to my prayers, as a newlywed myself I know all about the painful stuff that comes with the territory.

Been there, sad to say.

I will definitely pray for them.

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Gregory of Sinai, On Commandments and Doctrines
