Life is lovely. God has shown us so many things in this relationship. Greater than we could ever have anticipated.
Amazing, wonderful right where we’re supposed to be insights. Two fighters, survivors, overcomers, realistic, compassionate, hungry for The Lord, Seekers. With much more in common than one would ever realize.
We are, as humans, all of the above mixture https://shandraharris.com/2015/10/23/what-if-youcandoit-p2/ at any given time. Striving for the Peace and Joy that knows no understanding . Philippians 4:7
He’s hidden nothing, nor have I.
We continue choosing to show up.
The real beauty here?
|We see each other as we are NOW.
← In Light of The Cross yesterdays and ‘used to be’s’ evaporate.
What if you, Friend, stop comparing your partner, your spouse to the kid you used to date, or your former spouse, or some of negatives you’ve dated or your friend’s unfaithful husband? Or what if you stop putting people on pedestals ? OR stop comparing yours to the Perfect Life you’d hoped for. The PERFECT never existed..
In other words, somewhere between the rose-colored glasses of the ostrich effect & the gritty grime you expect.
#Dysfunction vs #Wholeness.
- You see him as God does?
- I see him the way he sees me? Through eyes of grace.
- I do!
What IF both of you:
- Occasionally meet in the middle? Give and take, compromise here. Step up there?
- Stop reading the statistics and focus on God?
- Commit to honesty, transparent love and accountability to each other, to becoming better for oneanother, our families and to GOD?
- We have!
NEWS FLASH for that #smallbittervoice of past REJECTION:
- Disappointment is part of Life.
- AND SO ARE HAPPINESS, SUCCESS, JOY and HOPE.
- Choose wisely.
We’ve both committed to 2015 many news- more about those, soon.
Right now ?
Embracing #TheNewManRightInFrontOfMe (yes! he has his own instagram #Hashtag) that allows God to mold, make and model him into the kind of man I want to follow.

You’ve got this! #YouCanDoIt
