My best friend and I were talking recently about what a spouse should be. Yesterday, I tarried in Proverbs for the majority of the day and got a little bit into Ecclesiastes. I read a lot about friends, friendship, advisors, trustworthiness, and character. A spouse should be your BEST friend, MOST trusted advisor, and have character that you admire and would not mind having rub off on you. By God's design, your spouse SHOULD be closer to you than any other being on the planet. By God's design, blood is NOT thicker than water. I'm just sayin! BUT, in order for such relationship to exist, one must be yoked with the RIGHT one for him/her, by GOD'S design. "And the two shall become one.......", is what the Word says. The Word is definitely something with which I choose NOT to contend.
As I continued to tread the depths of my mind, concerning the scriptures, an image came to mind. The image was of my cousins Fred and Tracy, whom I met for the first time this past weekend. Their spirit, as one, is AWESOME! I loved watching them together, how they dealt with each other, and how they were with their kids. Prime illustration, I say, they are of what married folk should look like when together. Their hearts were written all over their faces, which were beset by a brilliant glow. I love them to life!!
God is good! If we allow Him to lead, He will most certainly provide us with the ONE He intends for us. KEEP IT UP, FRED AND TRACY!! Thank you for being an awesome example for me, my heart, and my spirit!! I love y'all!
HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!!
