"To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us." (Tim Keller)
Danke @stephburg.fotografie für die Bilder. Einfach wundervoll!
Happy Anniversary, my handsome prince! May we be fortunate enough to share a lifetime more!😘💘🥂🍾 “I love you..
without reflecting, unconsciously, irresponsibly, spontaneously, involuntarily, by instinct, on impulse, irrationally.
I indeed do not have logical arguments, even improvised to substantiate this love I feel for you, that mysteriously emerged from nowhere, that has magically solved nothing, and miraculously, slowly, with little or nothing It has improved the worst of me.” -PN
Anything earned is valued so much more than things given. It will stay longer and more appreciated. Giving someone something does not always make them better. Giving them a chance to earn it, to do it themselves or for the opportunity is the best gift.
HUMBLED BY MARRIAGE 😙
Anyone else out there been humbled through marriage? For the love it’s hard to share space with the same human sometimes...especially when we step into that space of complacency.
Tim and I made a joint decision years ago to never turn into roommates raising kids together. We set goals for our finances, our careers, our retirement desires but setting marriage goals is just as important. It’s hard, it’s work, it’s frustrating as hell some days but we’ve been humbled through the years as we have fought together to overcome the divorce statistics. 🥊
Wherever you are in relationship world I would encourage you to sit down together to set goals specific to your relationship growth. I say it all the time that if you aren’t growing together you are growing apart. Everyone deserves that unconditional, passionate and intimate love so work for it friend. Put pencil to paper with your partner and get to goal setting. Expansion follows intention!!
