Tending Your Marital Garden

Posted on December 7, 2016 at 12:40 AM

Your marriage is a garden that must be tended. When ignored or left unattended, you will discover weeds have grown and stunted the growth of that which you have planted; you will also find the leaves of sprouts and more have been chewed, wilted/withered, fruit will be spoiled and/or non-existent because they have been eaten by pests or stolen by rodents/varmints. You will find that you will not want to be there because of the depressed look and lack of substance from the garden. 

When your marriage is tended you will find plump ripe fruits and vegetables from which you may pluck and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Your garden will look beautiful and bountiful. You will even want to spend more time in it because of the results.


Please note that tending your garden requires work that only you can do, unlike botanical gardens--where you can hire someone to do it for you. Your work will mean that you get dirty sometimes in the process, but when you arise with aching back, dirty knees, sweat soaked face and shirt you will look down with great pride at the beautiful progress you have made! The first time you get down there to weed it out and set the order that you would like will require the most work, but after that is done all you will have to do is simply maintain on a regular basis, which will require less work when done consistently.


What kind of marital garden are you after? How do you tend your garden?


Here are few resources that can be used to tend your marital garden.

Until Next Time,

I want to show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this predicament. Because of looking out throughout the search engines and seeing basics which were not pleasant, I figured my life was done. Living without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you have resolved by way of this review is a serious case, and the ones which might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your natural talent and kindness in controlling every item was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I'm able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to refer your web page to anyone who would need direction on this problem.
