Boundaries

6.07.2009

"Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them."--Grey's Anatomy

Okay, so maybe once I finish this post you may believe that this quote was an odd one to start with, but at the same time, I believe it fits. In Sunday school we've started a series about boundaries in marriage and I think it's going to be extremely interesting and helpful. One thing that stuck out to me this morning was this; boundaries have to be permeable--good stuff needs to come in and bad stuff needs to stay out. If you are so closed off to the good stuff God is giving you OR if you are not closed off enough and ANYTHING can come into your life, those things are bad. Boundaries are made in order to provide, well, order. I think that this series will provide a lot of insight into our own relationship and how we do things and how we can better some of those. Hopefully as the weeks progress, I can fill in the huge gaps I left in this post! I may be excited about it, but i'm still kinda fuzzy on a lot of the details.
