Images of Ward and June - Part 2

Pinned Image
<3We all exist before we find our one, though some of us never really live. I existed before him...small and inconspicuous and quiet so I could disappear.... it was safer. He saw something, stopped, stooped and reached his hand into that place and called to me. And I was compelled to respond...not with a conscious mind...with all the fire and light and desire and fear inside screaming for a safe place and finding his arms. There I flourish, there I burn without being consumed, fly without fear,find wonders never imagined, and peace...for the first time.

Surely then you can see that I am home...in you...that without you I would return to a vacuum, for you are that which feeds my soul. There is no choice because you are the answer to every question I have ever had and I cannot imagine being without you...eternity plus a day won't be enough.





Someday came when I met you, my love... and every moment before became irrelevant...except that they prepared me for you, and made sure that I would remember to tell you every single day how much I love you, how special you are, and how if you are the reward, every single thing has been worth being loved by you.

...and I love him...









HIS POV  

I won't remember before and can only dare treasure the now... Names, faces, places hold no meaning.  If my life was a desert, your love is the rain transforming my abrasive grit into a garden of love and delight. I am a empty vessel standing before the flowing fountain of your love.  Perfect in reciprocity, your love calms me like waves lapping upon the shore in the sparkling sunlight or our love.  I love you, June!

  2. So very beautiful. Thank you for sharing! :) I feel I lived before my husband... but I never felt complete, he did that for me. :) I am so glad you two found each other.

    1. Thanks so much, Es May. I never really knew the reason I was created. Then I had children and I thought this was it, they are to do great things in this world. Then I realized that they are only mine for a time, it is my job to raise them to be good people who are successful in life - not careers (well that too, but not my priority). And I wondered, what is there for me after I send them off? I had no answer to that until Ward came. Yes, for the first time I was complete.

      Thank you so much, I am so glad the he was put in my path.

  4. How wonderful that God, in his wisdom, brought you to one another to help fill the gaps and soul loneliness both of you had before becoming a part of one another's lives. Though there is no perfection here on earth, I think God loves us so much that he allows us glimpses into what heaven will be like every once in a while. There are many such moments- things my little ones say, ecspecially the purity of my autistic sons expression of such profound love, the beauty of creation around us, the many majestic sites around the world, a tiny Valentine written with incredible earnest by my daughter... So many big and small glimpses God gifts to us. - ...... And the greatest of these is LOVE, God said. The union between a man and a woman is in no small way a great illustration of Gods love- unconditional, hard, sacrificial. And when it is true devotion, such as yours, and pure of heart to the best of your abilities, it is truly a sight to behold. I know life is not all a bed of roses, but your care for one another is an inspiration and a little glimpse of heaven. Thank you for raising my spirits today! ☺Take care, Kristin

    1. Welcome, Kristin :) Thank you for your most beautiful and most kind words, they brought tears to my eyes. Though going through life I may have questioned God, once Ward came, I knew that there was wisdom, every single thing happened to season me to receive Ward's gifts, every hurt made me all the more grateful, and sure not to overlook the things he does or take him for granted.

      God has blessed me greatly three times, surely more than I deserve. Two of those blessings are only meant for me to share. They will always be a part of me, but never truly mine, that is God's design. We love them and teach them and set them out as ripples on the sea to create the next generation, and if we are truly blessed we'll see how far our love will reach out into this world. We can only ever imagine it's true potential, but it is great. Giving them that ability to be strong and good and virtuous is so important, and teaching them joy and wonder in the many gifts we have been given,to treasure and shepherd is no less important.

      The third of those was completely unexpected. but the love that he brought with him is the purest, fiercest I have ever known apart from that I have for the children. It continues to take my breath away.

  6. How simply beautiful. I understand the feeling of being so dry... ready to wither away and then, he came, and called, beckoned me.. and I soaked him in. His dominance, his love, his security, and I thrive, we grow..

    1. Thank you very much, Dana. That is exactly the feeling, I never expected to be able to bloom, and I never expected my humble self to be seen as having worth, let alone to be treasured.
