What do you think binds you together in Marriage?
Well I know that when I was young I wanted to feel needed. Boy things have changed
Love comes in stages:
When I thought i knew it all, I wanted to be needed. Yes the teenage day dream. My Idea of love was hanging out barely talking and feeling needed. Holding hands, looking into each others eyes, I am not saying that I don't still appreciate those things but I am older now, I need a lot more! I remember just about the time when I had full attention of my significant other. I grew tired and cold. I was bored and it was over..
Yep that was my life for almost all my teenage years. Is that normal? I don't think so. I was searching, for something I couldn't have like achieving goals. It didn't matter who I hurt.
Romance made in heaven, I was so in Love with my husband when we started dating. It was I guess a love hate relationship. I guess we all have at least one of those. It kept the fire. Now after a couple of years I realize what I need and desire now is a lot different than when we began.
I Thank God daily for my husband. He brought us together. We are forever tied in unity. There is not another man on earth that I want. Nope not even Brad Pitt , ladies! I do see that our love is different than a quick cat and mouse.
As I grow I realize that the yearning that I once had. The need to be wanted has change into the Gratefulness of a real friend. The need to be right has changed to the need to be understood not agreed with. The feeling of emptiness has been filled with the overwhelming feeling that no matter what there is one person that would lay it all down for me, and love and protect me and get in the trench with me so we can dig ourselves out!
We are tied by commitment and the rope are Jesus ! That is more important than anything I may feel at the moment. I am Thankful for a Godly husband!
