The other night my man stood before me...peppered gray hair and beard, boxer shorts and white t-shirt, black socks (one slouched down to his ankle), and belly and chest that have been worked on by gravity. My heart filled with such amazing love that overwhelmed me beyond understanding. He looked at me and asked, "What's wrong?....Tina!?!?...what is it?" Then, I started laughing...I mean really laughing. When I was able to calm down, I overwhelmed HIM with the knowledge (once again) that I AM SO IN LOVE WITH HIM!!! (We call these times "moments", and I was having one. They are so precious.)
We looked in the mirror at ourselves...laughing and tearing at the same time...revelling in each other's love and laughing at our pitiful physiques...My how times have changed! We used to be so young...fit...beautiful. But now, we are two middle aged folk who are more in love with each other than when we first met! The butterflies still come, and the hearts still flutter. :) Marriage is a gift from God, and I marvel at the fact that He compares it with Christ and the church. How beautiful!
