Picture Perfect Marriage

The picture of Tiger Woods and his wife kissing is a little blurry, but isn't this the case with most marriages? You see one thing, but the reality of another couple's marriage is a blur to everyone else. Behind closed doors is a life of reality of two people learning to love one another through the many bumps and bruises of the game of life they play.

Could you? Would you?
Forgive or not?
With all my recent talk about the power of forgiveness, I'm not sure how I would handle this one. The RIGHT thing to do would be to forgive, but that doesn't mean I have to remain married does it? Or does it?

The bottom line is, only YOU can make this decision. Only YOU are the one who has to live with the decision. Only YOU are the one that has to deal with the constant replays in your mind of the betrayal. Only YOU are the one that has to sleep with him/her at night. Only YOU would be denying yourself of freedom if you don't forgive. Only YOU would miss out on the change forgiveness can bring about in your marriage IF you forgive. Only YOU know the depth of your love for your spouse.

Life...you reap what you sow.
