Can A Jeep Save A Marriage?
Ok maybe that is a little extreme, but hear me out and be sure to read the disclaimer at the end of this post.
After 16 years of marriage, Brad and I still are complete opposites.
They say, “opposites attract”, but who knew it would be so extreme?!
We are as different as day and night.
I also know this is well said, but if you only knew the realities of the statement.
Back many moons ago, there was a song that Amy Grant sang, called Good For Me.
The lyrics are full of antithetical personalities, yet the title gives hope that love can evolve.
When you are this differing, personalities clash like gasoline and matches.
However, Psalms 133:1-2 says, “How good and pleasant it is to dwell together in unity.
For harmony is as precious as sacred scented oil!” If only we would apply the Word more, lol.
Brad and I have very few things in common.
Like almost none.
Our first passion is to love God, so there definitely is hope for us.
We also dearly love our family – especially our kids and grandbabies!
I mean, who is crazy enough to take a non-negotiable, family vacation half way across the United States, with 11 adults, a toddler, a baby, AND counting?!
Yes that would be us!
So definitely we have that in common.
Don’t judge, but we also enjoy being marksmen. (This involves guns and shooting them, so if this offends you, just move on,)
Although we should spend more time and make this more of a priority, unfortunately it isn’t as possible as we would like.
THEN CAME THE JEEP
So then came the Jeep.
Brad actually was on board way before I was, but the more we talked about it,
I could see the picture of what could be.
Our Jeep is just simply fun!
We know alot of people who ride Harley-Davidson‘s and Brad had one, back in the day (before me).
But neither of us are interested, because we both feel like, being in the Jeep is more “together”.
As we conversed more and more about the Jeep, the Lord started showing me people that we could love, thanks to having the Jeep.
All the while having something we could enjoy together, pretty much on a daily basis.
Every person who calls themselves a Christian (remember – “Christian” means to be a Christ-follower) is supposed to be a minister.
We are called to love God and love people.
Thus we have become – Jeeps On The Rock. The Rock is Jesus!
We hope to share a little Jeep-building, off-roading, trail-riding, and eventually some overlanding videos through Jeeps On The Rock.
Why don’t you tag along to see where the next 16 years (and the many, many more) takes us?
We hope to see you out on the trail!
Disclaimer: The answer to the original question is NO! A Jeep cannot save a marriage anymore than a having a baby can. Marriage simply takes work! Blessings! ~Amanda
