Life is full of surprises!
You never know what might happen next. You could just be wiping a dirty table at a restaurant and a man happened to walk by and in that second, your whole life was changed… forever! That’s exactly how I met the Love of MY life. I didn’t expect it, neither did he. I never knew it would happen, I never saw it coming. God has given me countless of surprises all throughout my life but that day we met was probably the greatest surprise I ever received from Him.
But surprises still kept pouring in. That meeting was just the start of the many surprises that were yet to come.
I never knew what TRUE love was…
Until I met him.
So I just learned that I’m going to be away from my sweet Husband for a month for a training program in Houston. This will be the first time we have ever been apart for even a minute since we were Married nearly three years ago. I don’t like the idea of being that far away from him but sometimes, we have to make sacrifices for the good of the other. So even if it’s going to be hard, I have to do the best I can to do well in my training. I love my husband muy mucho (and he knows it hehe) but I have to set that aside for a little while so I can put all of my best efforts into learning as much as I can because if I don’t do that, then he’ll be the only thing I’ll think about and I won’t be able to learn anything! (Is it too cheesy? But at least it’s truthful. 😉 )
This training will be able to help me a lot as a person too. I will learn to be more disciplined, organized and responsible. Also, it is a good opportunity for me to build a good future for myself and my husband. I believe in myself that I can do this. I am not the smartest person in the world but I have my father’s brain so I guess that will be more than enough to pull this thing off.
So look out, Houston, here I come! 🙂
I was on my laptop trying to write something for my blog when he called my name. I was still walking towards him when he said I want you to read the lyrics of this song. And I did….. And it made me cry like a baby. I don’t usually cry when I listen to songs except when it’s one of those ’emotional’ days but that song got me, straight in the heart that there was no way to stop those tears from falling from my eyes.
(excerpt from the song)
“We live on a mountain
right at the top
there’s a beautiful view
from the top of the mountain
every morning I walk towards the edge
and throw little things off
car-parts, bottles and cutlery
or whatever I find lying around
it’s become a habit
to start the day
I go through this
before you wake up
so I can feel happier
to be safe up here with you”.
Lyrics ~ Björk
We looked at each other after the song ended and just cried our heart out. The song got us both when we least expected it. But it felt good. It felt good to just comfortably cry in front of the person you love the most in this world; no fear, no shame, just love. It feels good to be with him 24 hours 7 days a week because we get to learn new things from each other every day and we get to do things that most couples don’t do on a regular basis. We both feel blessed that we have all this time together. I wish every couple was this way so they too could experience this kind of love. Though I know that there are couples out there who truly love each other even without the luxury of spending 24/7 together like we do but it’s still not the same to be with your husband every minute of every day. I’ve heard people say over the years long before I got married that they don’t want to be stuck with their partners all the time because it could get really boring at some point. I don’t remember who those people were but all I know is they were all wrong. I’m living it and it’s not boring…at all. Instead, I am very happy to have this. I can guarantee them that I wouldn’t trade this for anything or for any amount of money. They shouldn’t say something they don’t know anything about.
It doesn’t matter if people agree with me or not but I know what it means.
Women need to understand that it’s perfectly fine to be submissive to our husbands. Being submissive, contrary to what most people may believe, is not a weakness. It is rather, a strength that is needed in order for a man to be who he is supposed to be in the relationship. Or at least that’s what my husband and I believe in. I’m just tired of the propaganda that’s being pumped onto women’s minds today about not letting the man control them, instead the women are the ones who should control the men. Like really? Well if you are a Christian who believes what is written in the bible, you should consider what it says in Ephesians 5:22-24;
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.”
But if you don’t believe in God’s word, I guess you can do whatever you want to do. But Christian women should know this verse and practice it. Men need those kind of women so they can properly function in their own marriage. We are supposed to be the support system of our husbands. We are the rib that God has taken from men to be their helpmate. Don’t you want to do what you were created to do? Granted that there are men who abuse their wives out there, plenty of them even, but we are smart enough to know when men are being abusive or not, when they are being proper husbands or not. Use the power of discernment God has given you.
So don’t be afraid to be submissive, in fact be proud to want to be that way for you were created exactly for that purpose. I know I am.
I love waking up each morning having the man I love the most in this world beside me. He usually wakes up before I do and the first thing he does is reach for me and wake me up so he could cuddle with me before we get up. I usually don’t wake up good in the morning but I love the way he wraps his arms around my tiny little body feeling his love and utmost devotion. How lucky am I to have such a kind of love! In my opinion, that is only something most women wish to have and only a few ever had. He says he is the lucky one, but let me tell you, I am one lucky girl myself! I would never trade that for anything!
I am very blessed. Very.
