Well, after Lisa and I honeymooned, we came back and rented a small place in Houston, which is where we lived at the time. And very quickly, very rapidly, romance segued into reality. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? Reality. There were bills to pay. We were both in school. There were the stresses and the pressures of working and also being married.
And some of you right now are thinking, “Wait a minute. You mean the romance ended that quickly? I’m going to be different. When I get married it is going to be romance 24/7. It is going to be love, love, love, love, love.” Well, you just get married for a couple of weeks and watch the romance erode. It happens like that. It just happens. And all the married people are thinking, “Ed I feel you man. You’re right on target.”
Marriage is not the easiest thing; it’s the hardest thing. It’s challenging to be married. But I’m here to tell you it’s worth it. It’s worth the work. Now, about now some of you are saying, “Ed, did you show up at the wrong time and place? This is Easter weekend. We’re celebrating the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Every song we’ve done has been about the resurrection; the video, the resurrection; the paintings were about the resurrection; the drama, it’s about the resurrection. The resurrection and marriage? There’s like a disconnect. It doesn’t make sense. Where is the common thread?”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
