O God, stamp eternity on my eyeballs…

for my wife

i believe i honor God by honoring you. It was His design, His plan to put us together and make us one. In light of that truth i stumble in loving you, i fall in making that love seen and in honoring you.

Why?

i’m not sure, but it is my intent to be deliberate with loving you…we are in it for ever…

Will you have me that long?

Often i hide behind the deep seeking of God and my pursuits after Him so as not to be vulnerable and real with you. Yet, could it be said that i find God in those that love me, and in those i love?

What am i afraid of?

O, to love you more, rightly and on purpose. Bits and pieces, like a puzzle, are coming together to reveal the real picture.
O, for the vision of that picture and the purity of true love unbridled by past mistakes and the muzzles of bad memories that do not include you.
One day, my love, we will know each other in true purity, true love. As we cast our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, we will be truly one as He is one.

So, in the meantime, we have the blessed trials of normal days to love each other and to reflect His true love in us.

O, for more of it to show…
