This morning I woke up out of a strange dream about my sister inlaw. What makes this dream strange is the fact that she and my brother have been seperated for over three years and there is no sign of reconciliation in the future. In the dream she and I seemed to be having a conversation about marriage and I was preaching to the choir about how the unity of marriage between man and wife is to never be compromised by allowing other's to come into the circle. When we allow other people into our marital affairs it stirs up strife with all parties involved and that isn't good because even if you and your mate mend things back together those who were in the midst of your disputes or what have you will still possibly hold something against one of you. So it's best and wise to keep others out of your marital problems and learn to work things out for yourselves.  

I truly don’t understand what the significance of the dream is because their marriage broke due to infidelity on both their parts, but my brother was actively caught. She was weeping endlessly in the dream and all I remember hearing at the end of the dream as I was coming out of it was me calling her name (3) times. Not sure what this is all about but, I do know that I have learned to keep people out of my business whether it’s my marriage or otherwise, what can anyone else do to help mend a relationship?, now don’t get me wrong I know someone can give you good, and wise counsel, but honestly it will have to be up to the two parties in the relationship to come to terms and agree to work things out if they both want it. So when I woke out of the dream I was thinking about the circle of the wedding ring and how it is an never ending circle, it has no outlet or entry
(meaning a break in the band) and this is how our marriages are suppose to be unbreakable. God intended for marriage to last forever with that one someone, but of course sin set in through (Adam & Eve) and messed that up!, But we can still hold true to what God's intention for marriage is suppose to be by allowing ourselves to be true to one another and keeping the doors of communication open at ALL times. Notice that the word door is plural meaning that both parties are responsible for letting the other know whats going on if there are any issues in the marriage.

I for one have learned my mistakes from my first marriage seeing this is my second go round and I work hard at not making the same mistakes from the last one as well as making sure I keep the lines of communication open on my part with my hubby and he does the same with me. He has never been married until me, but he has a good understanding as to how this marriage thing is suppose to go and with my help he is learning even more and we keep it real with one another. Of course we still have our trials and heated fellowship, but we know how to come together and have learned to disagree peacefully if that makes sense. But all in all marriage is an ongoing commitment that takes work, love, understanding, and prayer on a daily basis. As I thought about all of this I looked up the significance of the wedding ring and here is one of many meanings that I found......

The circle of a wedding ring symbolizes undying love and the continually renewed promises of the married couple. Since the time unknown, circles have been archetypes for not only timelessness, but also wholeness and homecoming. The circle also represents the constant round of the heavens, as well as the eternal return of the seasons, marked by cyclical ritual and celebration.
The endlessness of a wedding ring is the perfect symbol of oneness and unity that has no beginning or end. It is also a symbol of the sun, earth and universe, and represents holiness and peace. Even the caveman, our forefather, used to bound himself to his mate with a cord of woven rushes as a symbol that their spirits were one. In Ancient Northern, it was believed that a lover's knot was a symbol of love, faith, and friendship. This knot was made out of the hair of the beloved. It was first woven into a knot that was then worn as a ring.  

In all you do, DON'T let the circle be broken!
