Are you worth waiting for?

I watched a movie recently where a couple was separated for 28 years. A soldier, who had only gotten news of his new bride’s pregnancy had to go off to war but then he got trapped on an island. He was alone there until another rescue mission took a new set of soldiers there decades later. The old soldier was sure he had nothing to live for anymore or leave the island for too but for the thrill of walking and working alongside humans again, he joined them to fight the war.  One of the young soldiers asked him about his family and he said his wife had just gotten pregnant when he left home. He was sure she would have had the baby and definitely re-married. He wasn’t going to hold it against her but the young soldier said to him, ‘you’ll be amazed how long a person can wait’ and it got me thinking. … More Are you worth waiting for?

How does a moment last forever?

How does a moment last forever?
How does our happiness endure?
Through the darkest of our troubles
Love is beauty, love is pure
Love pays no mind to desolation
It flows like a river through the soul
Protects, persists, and perseveres
And makes us whole

Minutes turn to hours, days to years then gone
But when all else has been forgotten
Still our song lives on
How does a moment last forever?
When our song lives on … More How does a moment last forever?

Flying without wings

Everybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You’ll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be
Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings … More Flying without wings

Earning special moments with your wife

Men are streamlined. They are ready to go anytime, anywhere. Women are naturally complex. Men can be compared men to microwaves and women to slow cookers. If you want to warm up that slow cooker, there are certain things you must do.

Let your wife be a woman, and show your appreciation.

You married that woman because you were attracted to her differences, including the fact that she cared enough to ask you questions about yourself and your day. So let her be different. Allow her to be the communications expert she naturally is. Yes, she may be fussy about details and sometimes have bad timing but that fussiness and commitment to improving your relationship make her who she is. It is part of that mystique you fell in love with in the first place. … More Earning special moments with your wife

Body language – Holding hands

Ah! Yes, that feeling you feel when someone you tend to like slightly (seemingly accidentally) touches you. The rush of emotions, almost like sugar rush, that gushes through your senses are so vivid, so awakening and you are just suddenly sure you want to be with that person, that’s one of the obvious meanings of hand holding in man and woman relationship. But when the relationship becomes more familiar, more intimate and you still find you want to hold hands with that special someone, then it may signify an exertion of ownership, of appreciation to be the chosen one. It signifies the rejuvenating element of your love and affection for that special someone because you’re not always guaranteed even having sex with someone that you’ll want to hold their hand in public. Holding someone’s hand is a sign of wanting to be close to your partner in a nonsexual way. … More Body language – Holding hands

The role of friendship in marriage

Hi people!

It’s another month. Happy new month. February was the month of love and it felt every inch like love was in the air.

Now for singles who had so much love in February that you want to take your relationship to another level, there are certain things to note before you say ‘I do”. I have various posts on things to note before marriage and the list in not exhaustive actually. As long as you feel uncomfortable about anything, please talk about it.

People often say love makes the world go round. I believe 100% that is true. However in marriage, while love is a good foundation for a union, it’s often not enough in most cases. You need a couple of elements to keep your relationship happily together forever even after the love might not be as strong anymore. One most important element is friendship. … More The role of friendship in marriage
