Discovering what love is one day at a time
I love to play Hide and Seek with a toddler. The game goes on for as long as they are attentive to, and when they find you, the giggles are worth the time spent not getting anything done. Looking for a child when they are playing without telling you is not so much fun, nor is trying to find a child that is hiding out of fear.
Just remembering… that nineteen years ago today, I was preparing for a ceremony I really didn’t understand. I was very excited to become Mrs. and start out on new adventures with the man I knew was the one for me. When we first started dating…I thought perhaps that he was too quiet, but learned that he could make me laugh harder than anyone could, and when he had something to say it was insightful, and full of wisdom. He was so kind, gentle, patient and he listened…really listened to me. (If you know me at all…that is a patient man) At the age of 24, I had no clue how hard loving someone could be…I mean really loving them. And now, I am still learning what an adventure it is. I am so blessed to have spent the last 19 years with my husband; and like all married couples, loving someone that is completely different than me and the opposite sex is an adventure.
So thankful for the man who challenges my way of thinking, teaches me to love myself by the way he loves me, takes care of me, is diligent to provide for our needs, and is my very best friend. I love that with each passing day we get to be together, I love that I still get butterflies when he gets home from work. I love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him, celebrating and sharing the good the bad and the ugly, until death do us part. Remembering that I get to celebrate my husband’s love for me every day and the gift that he is;, and remembering this special anniversary day.
TWEAKED...sometimes...we are plucked out of a heavenly perspective because we have chosen to agree with the way the world/our current culture’s way of looking at things. Simply put, we have believed lies; unless our perspective is submitted to God’s perspective/God’s Truth, our perspective is going to be tweaked a little bit. (The problem with that is it’s tweaked.)
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 18 and 13.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
