Well, I have no idea what happened, but I somehow coincidently deleted my last posts and all of the comments. I have no idea how it happened and have not yet found a way to get it back. I really appreciated those of you who commented and I am so sorry that your comments have been deleted, it was an accident. It's a huge bummer but I suppose we carry on. Which I suppose is fitting since today's topic is trials and suffering. This subject is not specific to married couples, but it is not something that goes away once you get married. Everyone has trials of different kinds. And for some people, that is marrying someone who turns out to be not what they expected. A girl in my class asked today: "Does this mean that some people are foreordained to marry bad people?" I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this. I do know that a woman I love and admire very much married someone that I believe to be a seriously disturbed man. That marriage caused many many trials for her. It was a difficult time for everyone involved-and I wish that those I love did not have to suffer. But I know that we have trials for a reason. I am extremely grateful for every trial I have had in my life. My trials have taught me so much and I feel closest to God while in the midst of a trial. So, are we foreordained to marry the wrong person, or is it all in the decisions we make? I don't know. And there are many times that I wish I could have a peak in to my future and know things like: if I will get married, when I will get married, the type of marriage I will have, the trials I will have. I know that I can't, and I know that my Heavenly Father knows me bes and he knows the plan better than I do. So in the mean time, I'm just doing the things that I know that I'm supposed to and waiting to see what happens.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this. What do you think?
