The last stage of marriage is that period of time when the nest is empty—either empty of the children or of one of the mates—or both. This is a critical stage in the home. All sorts of strange and unpredictable feelings transpire, and we find ourselves in need of stabilizing thoughts and direction.
Often we don’t meet needs because we’re too busy living our own lives. But by not helping, we miss out on God’s blessings. It’s through providing for others our lives are enriched.
