Yesterday was our first year anniversary!!! ❤ I now know what it is like to love someone so much it hurts! A good kind of hurt..an overwhelming feeling all over really.Since our dating days I’ve learned and grown so much in not only the knowledge but the practice of love.
It’s not just something you feel, something like the movies portray as an “everlasting passion”. In all truth and reality..it’s so much more than that, so much deeper than that. God IS love. What makes us think that love would be something so shallow and selfish then? Something that fades, something that comes and goes depending on what the other has done or not. NO…
Love grows…Love is flower, a puppy, a child, it needs love, attention, care, nourishment.
It’s much more than what a person looks like..even though, I mean just looook at him! I must say I do have the cutest hottest husband EVER and look at that man bun he’s growing..but you know, shrugs* that’s just me. 😉 Looks may fade but he’ll always be my cutie ❤
It’s much more than what a person likes and dislikes, because he’s not a fan of steak and is the biggest fan of power metal. ._. While my old soul on the other hand could live off eating steak and listening to really old music while still being a girly girl chola.
Love is an action, something you choose, every morning, every day, every night. Love is choosing them over yourself. Love is giving your 100% and expecting nothing in return. Love is respecting each other regardless of who is the “woman” and who is the “man”. Love is understanding them and the way they are. Love is listening without judging. Love is accepting them for their faults and mistakes. Love is knowing you can’t change them. Love is praying for them. Love is supporting them. Love is turning potential fights into jokes and still getting things resolved. Love is seeing their side in arguments and knowing they can be right too. Love is realistic expectations and expressing them. Love is knowing the person within the outer personality and still wanting to be with them. Love is wanting to know more about them everyday. Love is wanting to go through laughters and tears together. Love is wanting to grow old together. Love is giving space when needed and jumping on them when acceptable. Love is laughter and joy.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never ends..” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
We may not be perfect and we do not pretend to be, but without Christ in our relationship I couldn’t imagine what this marriage would be like. ❤ We want our marriage to grow in Christ everyday more and more because the closer we are to him, the closer we are to each other. We ignored the warnings and ignored being called naive and got married young, we don’t regret it!
“I married young and it wasn’t a mistake. I don’t think about whether or not I’ll love her in 20 years, I simply decide to love her tomorrow too” -(couple married over 60yrs)
1 year down, many many many more to go.. ❤
