Distance Doesn’t Matter


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.

Don’t Turn Away, But STAY…

Walking-Away

You say I have an attitude today                                                                                                           but ignoring me won’t make it go away

Acting like I am not even here                                                                                                           giving me the cold shoulder

You get so mad at me                                                                                                                                    and then, turn away completely…

It hurts so much inside                                                                                                                                that I really want to HIDE

I want to smile at you                                                                                                                                   but I need you to smile back too

Let me know you still care                                                                                                                    and I will continue to be there

The look I get on my face                                                                                                                              can often be so hard to replace…

Especially when it seems so real                                                                                                               and invisible is how I feel.

There’s nothing you have to say                                                                                                      when you to look my way

Just smile at me please                                                                                                                                 and everything will be at ease

Because you are the one who stayed                                                                                                          even when all the others went away…

You understand who I am                                                                                                                            and that I can love you as a man

So don’t forget me as I sit beside you                                                                                                       I am the one who will be there through and through

Wherever we go or whatever we do…                                                                                                              I will NEVER stop loving you!
