The Half Empty Gas Cylinder
Do you remember the gas cylinder that we thought was empty? We exchanged it for a new one only to discover that it was the burner on the stove that was faulty. We had it returned and several weeks later we were still using the gas from that “empty” cylinder.
There have been frustrations aplenty in our marriage. Sometimes it might even feel like we have run out of love (the fuel of our marriage). Many persons that we know have run from one relationship to another as one would exchange gas cylinders thinking they have run out of love for that person. Yet if they had just eliminated what was at fault they would find that they would not have to exchange their “cylinders” because the “fuel” was still there.
I am happy that I have grown past the urge to “cut and run” whenever there was a problem. Our love has grown stronger to the point where one day when I felt that I had run out of love, I asked God to “love you through me.” He refilled and refueled me and no exchange was necessary.
