He & I, we said we wanted to live this life together in love.
We came together to be joined.
The great mystery that is two becoming one.
In this oneness we stand together as equals.
He knows me & I know him.
Who else hears our biggest dreams & watches our deepest failures?
We hear it said that small groups & mentoring relationships
are key to growing in maturity.
We hear the admonition that "no man is an island",
so you guys should be gathering with us for Men's meals.
"Iron sharpens iron", so make every effort to attend ladies Bible study.
Get involved and grow.
We love church, we love our faith community.
We are involved & we are growing.
But we have a little secret.
Mostly we are home.
Mostly we are together.
Staying at home does not mean avoiding growth.
You know that part about marriage being one flesh?
We've got a built-in mentorship program going on here.
We can stay home, rest, fellowship, water our grass & grow.
He sharpens me & I sharpen him.
We have a small small group, he & I.
We talk about real life, we hold each other accountable,
we encourage each other in righteousness & extend grace to each other.
And we grow.
Our hearts stretch up toward God & in that they stretch closer to each other.
**I continue to be inspired by Rachel Held Evans #Mutuality2012 blog event.
I also just got Just How Married Do You Want to Be?
per a recommendation on Laura Ziesel's blog.
I barely cracked it open. But, I was inspired to write about
the union of two equal persons.**
