   Do differences over religion ever affect our relationship?
   Whether or not religion is discussed in our relationship, whatever spiritual beliefs I have are important to me. Maybe I believe in God, or a supreme being by another name. I may consider myself a member of a particular religious faith, or feel that religion is a crock, or be somewhere in between.
   Whatever my beliefs, it's likely that at times during my life and in our relationship, I'll be confronted by religious or spiritual direction or values. If I am, I'll probably struggle with some of them. Are prayers answered? Should I go to church? Does religion mess up as many lives as it professes to save? There are many more questions I could ask.
   If I do believe in spiritual forces, maybe it's time to ask myself whether anyone is wise enough to know the truth for others. When I search for my own personal answers, and let my partner do the same, I might find that we're both heading toward the same truths, just on different paths.

Just for Today
   Today, whatever spiritual beliefs I have, I'll respect my right to find truths in my own way and do the searching I need to. I'll extend the same respect to my SO, and realize that whatever I find, I can share with love.

Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there is one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded faith. - Thomas Jefferson
