The Steps Of Life – The Early Patriarch

Recently, my life has become like one of those sack races at a school party.  My wife is in the sack with me – almost twice a day on average – and often we are trying to hop in different directions when it comes to our plans, ideas, and how we want to spend our time that day.  Our marriage is yet young.

A fellow acquaintance and “left-wing” Christian on a forum I follow made this startling assertion: Unfortunately, you sometimes have to force people to do what is best for both society and themselves.
