High Maintenance

How many marriages thrive when one partner is ignored? Does a friendship grow if it is rooted in lies? Can sisters truly love each other if their relationship is saturated with jealousy? Can a mother and daughter really understand the heart of the other if they speak only once a year?

Over at Faith Lifts I wrote about the high maintenance factor of all meaningful relationships. Check it out.

I am learning I have surrounded myself with people and friendships for fullfillment and they are draining me of my time for Him. I am learning I have been high maintenance with certain aspects of my life and I need to cut back and resort things.

Thanks for sharing.

Great post today as are all of your treasures. Thank you for faithfully sharing as the Lord works in your heart.

I'm the worst kind...high maintenance who thinks I'm low maintenance. And I'm raising a high maintenance daughter, unfortunately. Still, I've learned to be high maintenance on a budget! ;-)

Loved your application of this. How true, that relationships are hard work. That's why I try to invest in ones that are worth it.

What a special gift you have:) That was a great!!!

Sometimes I spend to much time on Josh & Not enough time with the Lord. And I know that if I just spend more time working on my relationship with the Lord He will take care of Josh in a way that I can't:)
