My husband and I are extreme opposites in every way. We think completely different in just about every single thing. What he notices, I don't and vice versa. We were brought up different. We are wired and think different too.
When we were younger we did not appreciate those differences. Our pride and immaturity caused us to argue over those differences more than appreciating our differences. Fortunately, because of God's mercy and grace, we have learned over the years to trust and respect each other with our opposite approaches. We have learned each others strengths and to put aside our foolish pride. To allow each other to make choices and do things that are contrary to our own response.
It is by God's mercy & grace that we ever get it right - it is by our own human frailty when we get it so painfully wrong.
