I am still someone's wife. reconciliation. restoring. healing. or not..whatever happens. I wait.
I've learned the hard way that there are things as a married person that are not ours to give away. NO matter what the other person has done. Today, and I pray for the rest of my life - that no matter what happens that I remember who's my stuff really is and that I only give it in health. I remember that there are eyes watching me. I teach my children about life by how I live mine. I have many sad stories.
But this..this is the promise that I now have and I hold tight to it each and everyday: God honors obedience and I want to please Him.
so while I wait..I wear this ring to remind me that I'm someone's girl...and I'm Someone's girl...I am learning that I am worth waiting for and worth being treated with respect. I am also worth learning how to treat others with respect and to wait for them.
I haven't worn my wedding ring in several years. We bought this purity ring for Grace's 12th birthday this year. I am thinking about buying me one. My thinking of it is neutral ring showing that I am committed to purity in my marriage...separated or not. Committed to purity in my relationship with God. In my younger days I have reacted out of my fears and insecurities making bad choices. Not today.
A ring is also a visual reminder not only for me...but others that I am taken. My heart is taken. What I have belongs to me and my husband. For me...separation to me is not a license to play. For me. Until that permanently changes I am committing my mind and heart to only focus on falling more in love with Jesus,changing myself, focusing on my dream by making a plan and living it and children.
true love waits: even if our relationship is never truly reconciled..I have a Husband who will never leave or forsake me and that makes me want to jump up and down with joy!I would love to know what you think: is marriage and purity..married or not..valued anymore today?
31. learning from my daughter the things I have been wanting to
