{my beloved ~ day 15}

“Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them out. Just as they are – chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.”
~ George Eliot, 1819-1880

I have so much more to say about this amazing man God chose for me, but alas it is not yet time to write that book. You can read some of my words here. He is a dream. He makes my dreams come true. And hubba, hubba when does he get home from work?!

I am grateful. For everything about him, foibles {of which there are very few} and all.

“It is the woman’s delighted yielding to the man’s lead that gives him freedom. It is the man’s willingness to take the lead that gives her freedom. Acceptance of their respective positions frees them both and whirls them into joy.”
~ Elizabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman

May it be so in our marriage, dear Lord, may it be so.
