Comfortability is such a supreme thought, when it comes to marriage and don't get me wrong. I believe that being comfortable and warm, in regards to your love relationship is very important. But may comfortability never replace the mutual adoration and respect that you once felt.
Meeting Sean at fourteen years of age came with several drawbacks but perhaps one of it's greatest strengths is that there is a portion of my feelings for him, that are frozen in time and they shall always be.
Sweet, pure, romantic and buoyed by the offer of unfettered love.
A marriage that is all about schedules, mechanics and roles can become tiresome, dull and rather sad.
Let's remember what brought us together in the first place. Or perhaps remember what has been keeping us together and allow that to be our compass.
A marriage should be extraordinary.
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to Himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church — for we are members of His body. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."
