Distance makes the heart grow fonder. I am not sure who quoted this, but it is truth.
My husband and I have have been apart for almost a month and a half. That is the longest we have ever been apart in the 14 1/2 years we have been together. And to be honest, I miss him terribly, as any wife would is miss a husband whom she adores.
The crazy thing is, I love him more than I did that month and a half ago. So, the saying is true.
I have found that we probably talk more than we would if we were physically together. Now, granted it is on the phone or FaceTime, but we talk 3 or 4 times a day, minimum, and that doesn’t include texts! I will say, in this season where we are apart, I am grateful for the technology we have like FaceTime, where I can at least see my husband as well as talking to him… that makes it so much more bearable.
As we have answered the Lord’s call on our lives, we have been led to California. Roy’s job keeps him away for months at a time. Again, it is a season and what we feel like God is asking us to do in this season of our lives. I will go to ministry school and Roy will work all over the country.
My husband will always be my forever love. No matter how far away he is.
It is challenging for sure, but Spirit led. We, as a couple, have grown even closer during this time. Amazing, right? Yes, truly amazing, truly God. Even being apart physically, we are still connected in heart. We are still one, as God brought us together in the covenant of marriage. And, as we each experience things in life, it overflows into the other person. In this way, we both benefit from what the other is experiencing. How cool is that? Our hearts are knitted together in a way that cannot be pulled apart. Rather, the heart strings become stronger as we, as husband and wife, become even closer in our intimacy, even 3000 miles apart!
And that is exactly how our loving Father works. He is present in all things. He is loving always. He believes in the covenant of marriage. And even in distance, two hearts that are meant to be together… Will always be one.
