Deep Roots.

March 19, 2012

Monday- Friday all I look forward to is getting home, cooking a meal and running a quick clean throughout the house to then enjoy a relaxing night with my husband.

It's the small moments while watching TV that make my heart melt.
When he reaches to hold my hand during The Office.
When he plays footsie with me over the ottoman.
When he hands me the remote to pick what I want to watch.

Love doesn't mean you'll always have extravagant dates and amazing butterflies.
It doesn't mean you'll always be excited to see each other or he's all you think about.
Love grows deeper roots than that.

Driving to church in silence is beautiful.
To be content with a relationship is to enjoy the quiet together.
A kiss on the forehead shows more love to me than a bouquet of flowers.

My love for Andrew has blossomed into something warm and defined.
I didn't know my heart could hold this amount of love for an individual.
He is the man I look to for guidance.
He's the guy that makes my heart smile.
He runs full force to my side when I'm in need of reassurance and support.

It's safe to say he has a firm grip on my heart.
He is my rock.

What am I trying to get at here??
Marriage isn't easy; it's not a swift walk through the park.
Or a cool ice cream cone on a summer's day.
It's challenging and irritating.
It's hard work.

But when you've found your match-- God will walk in the center of your marriage to keep peace after the storm. He will be there to hold your hands encouraging you.

Life is more than the material items, more than the daily grind.
It's about enjoying the choas or calmness.
So do it with that someone you can't live without.
