what I'm reading: when marriage runs dry from Tim Keller

If you're wondering why things are a little quiet here at the moment, it's because I'm working hard on a seminar on marriage. Hopefully you'll see the fruits of it on this blog!

In the meantime, here are some encouraging thoughts from Tim Keller on marriage:
In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love seem to dry up. And when that happens you must remember that the essence of a marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love. So what do you do? You do the acts of love, despite your lack of feeling. You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must be tender, understanding, forgiving, and helpful…And the more you do that, slowly must surely,…the love you will grow into will be wiser, richer, deeper, less variable.
