Lagniappe – Debunking a Marriage Myth

Yesterday, I wrote about dispelling that prevalent marriage myth–I never really loved her.   There are others who have written their own love stories, erected alters to remember.   Spend some time on these links today, then sit down and craft your own story.

Amber wrote our love story from start to finish here.  She took some risks, but it was worth it.

Ann Voskamp has this way with words.  Really.  Like magic.  She shares snippets of her love story here and here.

Terell and Kristen Welch wrote about struggle, forgiveness, and love here.  The vulnerability here is incredible.  Start with post 1 and work down to post 8.

Duane Scott recounts new love and the loss of a new chair.  Good work, Duane.

Ann Kroeker, writer, compiles a sampling of love stories here.  This post is incredible.  And while you are out it, check out the posts tagged marriage over at The High Calling.

Spend some time this week on your own story.  It will be worth it. I promise.

    Seth, after sleeping on it, I decided you were right. I needed to put that declaration out in public to protect my marriage. The comments section of your blog was not enough – it had to be on my blog too, for all our friends and family to see and reinforce. So here it is: http://whoivealwaysbeen.blogspot.com/2011/09/i-promise-i-loved-you.html A little bit of story, several photos, and a declaration of love.
