"There can be no true love
even on your own side, without devotion;
devotion is the exercise of love, by which it grows."
-Robert Lewis Stevenson
God has blessed me RICHLY with this man!
He has given me a best friend, a wise and gentle leader, a partner in the trenches, a lover in the sweetest sense, a gracious father to our children, and someone I can laugh with in the craziest most chaotic of times! Marriage is something I always "desired", for the romance I thought it would bring.... but I had no idea just how beautiful the oneness it brings truly is. Romantic always? No. Easy always? No. Richly, fully, beautifully belonging always? Yes. My heart rejoices that I belong with this man. Ladies, does your heart truly grasp the beauty of that statement for yourself? I belong with this man. We are most whole together. You belong with your man.... you GO together. THAT is a thought that WILL give you warm fuzzies and butterflies! *wink*
