I am not one for Fairy Tales, I never was as a child either. I can enjoy a good love story but I am not one to get lost in the fantasy of love and living "happily ever after." With that being said I can see a shift in my marriage that is becoming more clear everyday.
Everyone knows how much I adore my hubby. Everyone knows what I would do for him and for us to keep moving forward into a stronger relationship. In times past I have proven that he has my undying love. For the first time in a long time I truly feel that we are doing just that... moving forward into a stronger relationship.
The author of this book is correct, marriages working are proof there are forces in the universe working on behalf of us helping us continue on our path and not only staying married but BEING married to one another. My hubby recently made a statement to me. He said, "Sometimes I wonder if because we are doing so well something is out there trying to keep us from having a successful marriage." This was like a light going on in my head because I have felt the same way many times over the years. I feel like not only is there a force helping us be stronger with one another but there is a force trying to prevent it too.
I am determined to show my hubby an unconditional love that honors and respects him and our marriage. I am determined to show forgiveness, peace and grace. I am determined to walk my walk with God and build my relationship with Him and share that relationship with my hubby. All things are possible when you allow God to guide you. I am determined to find our "happily ever after" that fulfills us both.
