Epic Fail

This is the latest in my series of blog entries taking a fresh look at a variety of topics over the next year. I’ve set up a page on the blog explaining the project and linking to my entries. This week’s topic is “Your Spouse.”


I’m not sure who you are as I write this post. I don’t know if you even know me at all right now. But I was thinking about the writing prompt, and what I think about the woman I’m going to marry. Thinking about what you’re like, what about you and our relationship is important to me. And I remembered this song, and, you know, it’s just perfect, isn’t it? It’s like it could have been written about us.

I am not a perfect girl, nor are you a perfect man
But we have found each other here inside this wild and crazy world
And somehow make a perfect match

You bring out the worst in me but it’s the side I need to see
And through the conflicts and the difference and damage done
We are strong and still are one

You will fail me, you will fail me again and again and again
And I will fail you, I will fail you again and again and again
Again and again and again
But we will learn to love in spite of failure
Yes we will learn to love because of failure
And we will stay together

We are broken human fools, we are selfish, we are cruel
But there is hope for the exception to someday become the rule
Let it start with me, let it start with you

May the grace of our Lord be with you, now and always; may you stay blameless till He comes.
