Do you want a Pergo spouse?

My husband installs and finishes hardwood floors. Occasionally he comes upon a client who, instead of enjoying the beauty of natural variations in the real wood, want a flawless, glass-smooth surface and texture, with each wood piece the exact same pattern as the next. What they really want is Pergo. They want the beauty but…

What does “Becoming One” really mean?

[Excerpt from “Marriage is Like a Box of Chocolates…”] “Sometimes in marriage we begin ‘melting’ into our spouses instead of ‘cleaving’ unto them, a description of the commandment given to Adam and Eve in the Bible. ‘Melting’ means to try to become your husband while ‘cleaving’ means to become one with your husband, two very different things.
