the day I said, I do
I knew I loved my husband,
and I was excited to marry the love of my life.
We were friends before we started dating,
and our thinking was very compatible,
so getting married was such a joy for us.
I was young,
He was young
We were young 🙂
I didn’t know real love
I did not know love
The true love
The love that’s being talked about in the Bible
I just knew God so loved the World, so
much that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him,
shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
I had received Jesus some years back, but I did not know that
when the Bible talks about loving one another,
I was required to love my husband with that same godly love.
The love of God that is above the romantic love.
The unconditional love.
The God kind of love/Agape love
Agape is Greek word for the love of God
The love that is spiritual in nature:
according to vocabulary.com Dictionary.
The Bible says this love is:
not puffed up
does not dishonor/behave unseemly
thinks no evil
not self seeking
does not keep a record of wrongs
is not easily angered
Did not know love’s ‘cousins’
I did not know love and it’s cousins:
for these come by being grilled in the fire
and going through frictions’
also going through struggles for you to come out strong.
I did not know it’s cousins
I did not know kindness
I just was…
My wedding day is over 25 years now
Now years have gone by
there is such a vast difference
I look at my husband and I say,
‘really, did you ever think of this time, when our kids will be in college?’
Its funny and a bit scary at the same time.
And I am thinking to myself, “really, I was such a kid in my thinking”
You know, I was just focusing on my love for my guy,
and that we will live together for good.
Who cared about the moments between.
like, there will be disagreements here and there.
We will have kids and would be responsible for them
It just became a learning as we go kind of thing.
Learning through Experience
I have gained experience
We gained experience from day-to-day life and major moments
I am learning to grow
We are learning to grow
We have practiced the In sickness and health pledge
In lack and abundance
Yes through thick and thin babe 🙂
That practical side ain’t that easy,
but by god’s grace we went through,
as a thread goes through the eye of a needle.
We are growing in age and spiritually
and living in godly love towards the other is becoming easier.
And God has been faithful,
also still faithful
