Marriage is a thing of beauty and struggle. I love the tenderness of my marriage. At times intimacy being interpreted as a self-severing event is not what I long for. That is just having sex. Rather, loving intimacy is an act of sharing and touching, a blissful and spiritual presence.
Today I came across a rendering, from the website, where the author wrote, “Things I would not miss if I died today.” It summarized a list of earthly things he wouldn’t miss because physical death is the gateway to heaven. Let me take a page from this author and list the things I would miss if my marriage remains stuck.
I would miss my incredibly amazing wife
I would miss my best friend, my wife
I would miss my wife’s intelligence
I would miss learning the newness of life through my wife eyes
I would miss her laughter
I would miss walking with her on the beaches of the world
I would miss all of the life lessons my wife has to offer and I have learned
I would miss her logic
I would miss her wisdom
Most of all, I would miss living my life here on Earth for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and my wife.
Excerpt from faith-writer Trevor Slone “Things I would not miss if I died today”
I am affraid you have deeply misunderstood and very much understated the purpose of my note about the things that I "would not" miss. My note was a comprehensive list of the things that are most important to me in this life, while also keeping in mind that this world is not our home. It was nothing more than an encouragment to get others to think about the blessings that God has given them. I hope this clears it up for you sir. God Bless
