This morning I woke up and remembered that it was our anniversary! As I gazed at my sleeping love, he woke up, gave me a smile and then for a moment he became lost as he gazed into space.
I didn’t want to interrupt his waking moment, but I thought to myself as he became lost in thought… only God knows where he is right now.
In that moment, with that thought, I wanted to melt into our one true Love so that my husband and I could be lost together in His infinite ocean of love.
By losing ourselves or melting into Him we are not lost, but instead find His buried treasure of knowing each other even more deeply. This hidden treasure is wonderful, but even it falls short of a deeper secret waiting for us.
I long to long to lose myself for Him alone.
I placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, a perpetual barrier that it cannot pass; though the waves toss, they cannot prevail, though they roar, they cannot pass over it.
Isn’t it interesting that we are always trying to build something big and something strong to control the waters of the sea?
When God chose a barrier to contain it He chose one of the smallest things on earth, sand. A single grain of sand may be small, but in great numbers it prevails over the majestic, powerful and consistent force of the sea.
In great numbers anything is possible!
Join me in saying “It is Our Best Life”! In great numbers Our Best Life is realized for everyone!
I took my girls boogie boarding today! We all loved it and had waves that were the perfect size for them!
The rides were great, but it was so interesting to watch them evaluate each wave and wait for the one that they thought would be the best ride. I was out in the ocean for about 30 min with two of them. One of them took about 15 rides during that time, while my other daughter only got in about 6.
One was clearly pickier than the other about the waves that she thought would be a good ride, but in the end the one who jumped in the most had the most rides and the most “great rides”.
It was such a great reminder from my sweet little girls to live fearlessly and jump in!
It is Our Best Life… let’s jump in and really live it!
I am reading a book that talks about soul mates. To enjoy this book you have to first be open to the idea of reincarnation. If you can consider this with an open mind, then the book talks about the fact that you might not spend every life with your soul mate.
While reading this book I was thinking about this a lot and it made me wonder… what if my husband and I aren’t soul mates like I have always thought? What if we are just heavenly acquaintances working together in this life? This thought made me so sad.
Fortunately, I usually bounce back pretty quickly. I was sad for about a day, but then I decided there is no way for me to truly answer this question and maybe the answer hasn’t been written just yet anyway… maybe our free will comes into play as the question is slowly answered over the course of our lives through our thoughts and actions.
Therefore I am going to return to my original belief, that now has a little more substance and thought behind it. We are soul mates! Believing this with more conviction than ever, I now want to continue loving him, but loving him more, continue caring for him, but caring for him more, and continue connecting with him, but connect with him more. I want to find my joy in bringing him joy!
Then when this life is over and our souls meet again… we will have so much love in our hearts for each other, so many wonderful memories shared and so many lessons learned together that we will be soul mates… we will have written it in the stars!
Jesus said, “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
