Last Sunday was 7 weeks married. We’ve known each other for a while now, but we always talk about the kids.
Blended families are not to be left to an assumption they’ll just work out. They take effort, patience and understanding.
There’s a fine line to balance in these relationships. Sun Tzu said that the leader who is complimented for his pleasant personality in his first year of command, is mocked because of it every year since.
I’ve based every command assignment I’ve had on that secular and other biblical principles. You have to be a parent–not a friend. Still, I worry about the coming together of so many unique individuals.
Last week Liliana Hart snapped this pic, and there it was. The sweet surprise of confirmation that our efforts are paying off.
Do good, Scott
