How much do you guys love the name change? I hope you’ll continue to link up and link up even more than you did before!
Last week over at One Part Joy, One Part Circus, AJ shared about intimacy. This is actually part 3 in a series called Understanding Intimacy in Marriage.
She brought me in. So much that I desperately wanted to read the first two parts!
I could not help but read this section a few times before moving on. It is filled with truth and wisdom.
True intimacy in marriage is slow and steady. It is what comes after you no longer feel that crazy love. Healthy intimacy in marriage is based on commitment and mutual love, that is played out less through feelings and more through action. It’s that moment when you look across a table at your husband and you still feel love for him, but you can’t help but notice the stain on his shirt. It’s where you start to pursue one another NOT because you are so desperately IN LOVE, but because the other person is valuable, and genuinely important to you.
Another great, insightful post comes from Amy over at The Wall of God’s Truth.
Her post entitled Be Steadfast Where You Are really spoke to me last week. I am in a season of in between. We are going from big change and headed toward a new change. We are just in between while my husband finishes school.
She hit the nail on the head for me with this…
Sometimes in life we might find ourselves in a season that is frustrating or challenging. It doesn’t seem that it is serving the goals we had in mind. We start to want to move on. It’s too tiring, it’s too much, we’re bored.
Yep, I’m there. I’m ready for this season to be complete yet it won’t be for a few more months. I think the fact that it’s summer and that I’m feeling burnt out isn’t helping.
Check out the ‘meat’ of her post. I can’t do it justice trying to paraphrase it!
Thanks once again for linking up. We do this for you guys!
We love having a community where we can share what’s on our hearts week in and week out.
