Many times the difference between failure and success is doing something nearly right..... or doing something exactly right.

A must to read...

Keep this in mind.
This is for all: the recently married,
the ones who have been married,
the soon to get married, and
the ones who are still looking.

Years ago, I asked God to give me a spouse,
"You don't own because you didn't ask" God said.

Not only I asked for a spouse but also explained what kind of spouse I
I want a nice, tender, forgiving, passionate, honest, peaceful,
generous, understanding, pleasant, warm, intelligent, humorous,
attentive, compassionate and truthful.

I even mentioned the physical characteristics I dreamt about.
As time went by I added the required list of my wanted spouse.

One night, in my prayer, God talked to my heart :
"My servant, I cannot give you what you want"

I asked, "Why God?"

God said "Because I am God and I am fair.
God is the truth and all I do are true and right"

I asked " God, I don't understand why I cannot have what I ask from

God answered, " I will explain.
It is not fair and right for Me to fulfill your demand
because I cannot give something that is not your ownself.
It is not fair to give someone who is full of love to you
if sometimes you are still hostile,
or to give you someone generous but sometimes you can be cruel,
or someone forgiving; however, you still hide revenge,
someone sensitive; however, you are very insensitive...."

He then said to me:
"It is better for Me to give you someone who I know could grow
to have all qualities you are searching rather than to make you
waste your time to find someone who already have the qualities you want.

Your spouse would be bone from your bone and flesh from your flesh and
you will see yourself in her and both of you will be one.

Marriage is like a school.
It is a life-long span education.
It is where you and your partner make adjustment
and aim not merely to please each other,
but to be better human beings and to make a solid teamwork.
I do not give you a perfect partner, because you are not perfect either.
I give you a partner with whom you would grow together"
