On Love: Anything Together

Hubby and BabyTogether we fall, together we rise, together we can do anything.

It’s the way I feel about my husband. I sometimes don’t know where I end and he begins.

The beautiful journey of love that started with a broken down car and two matching Mustangs then God sustained us as a long distance relationship then urging our heart to unite, we stepped out in faith and began a life together. Awkward, insincere at times, scared and even-I’m ashamed to say- critical of each other

But as time smoothed down the rough places on our path we are beginning to see the polished surface below. It’s solid rock cut straight from a stone in Him alone and it sparkles with the white sheen of forgiveness, patience, joy, surrender.

I’m surrendering to the me I’m becoming. No longer clinging to the need to be wholly individual though my uniqueness and his are what makes together work. Neither one of us would ever be right again without together.

  1. What a lovely tribute to your husband! :) Such a great description of marriage. My husband and I were talking about that awhile ago-how we have just become who we are by combining each other—-ok that makes no sense. I’ll just let you do the eloquent writing! :)

  2. I love this post because it is how I feel about my husband and our relationship. It’s amazing to me how God took two kids who didn’t know much about anything and grew us together in Him. We’re on this adventure of life together and there is no one I would rather share it with.

    I loved your post, Jessie. Thank you for writing such a sweet post. Being married is a journey and I loved the different stages you wrote about.

  4. You ladies make me smile. I read each comments and pray over you all! Thanks for being here today, Laura, Steph, Eileen, r.elliott, Taylor, Kimberly, Jennie, Erin, Malisa!

    “Lord, thank you for using my words to reach out and make friendships with people all over the world. I pray for these ladies who have taken time out of their days today to visit here that you would work in their hearts to grow joy, peace and courage, that we would remember to be real and generous with our words, hearts and families.”

    Thanks for coming!

  5. Marriage is indeed a melding of more than body, but heart, soul, spirit, and mind. I love the moments I look at our life and see how so clearly we are WE, US, not me!

  6. What a beautiful post! I love the picture you paint.

    Beautiful!
