Without those desert seasons in life, I am not sure I would be as appreciative of the abundant ones.  

There are just some seasons of marriage where one of you are injured,  health is suffering, one of you are laid off or in between a new job where one spouse can’t provide in ways needed and provisions may seem scarce… but you make it through somehow.  You cut where you can and work with what you have, as a team.  Don’t let the desert seasons get the best of you, stick together!

Think about the provisions provided for your family.  Whether it is a family of 2 or 12, marriage creates a larger family to provide for.  

Today we are thankful for both desert and the abundant season of life.

She is married to a firefighter who was a volunteer for several years, then transitioned into a career fireman the same month they married in 2008, and he is now a Captain at his full-time Department. They have two daughters, have been in the FFW family since 2012 and know marriage takes a lot of work, even when it's in the best seasons.
