I took piano lessons from the time I was 5 until I was 14. I probably complained about them for 7 out of the 9 years. Perhaps even eight. But here is the thing about all that work I put in back then. As an adult I can pick up pretty much any piece of music and play it. I can play for pleasure, stress relief, entertainment, and even a random wedding or two for money. All those years of doing something I didn’t always enjoy have led to a lifetime of enjoyment. A lifetime creating beautiful music.
I’ve been thinking of those piano lessons a lot lately as I have two daughters who are complaining their way through lessons. And I’ve been thinking about it a lot in relation to marriage.
I think far too many of us stand in front of our family and friends and declare, “For better or worse, until death do us part,” but have no idea of what the worse part really means.
please join me over at Let Why Lead today as I share my thoughts on sticking out marriage during the tough seasons…..
