Okay…just ONE from our engagement pictures because I need sleep! More tomorrow? Eh… no one cares.
but you really don’t. You really won’t be.
In Honor of Zach Sobiech! Way to go Minnesota!
Why are so many relationships based on the sexual “nature” of relationships. When you are looking for the person to spend the rest of your life with, are you searching for the best “sex” ever, or are you searching for the person who brings you closer to Christ, someone who cares about what makes you happy, and goes out of their way to keep you happy. Even when times are bad they’re not just looking on to the next best thing. I see so many relationships around me, here on tumblr, and everywhere that I’m so thankful I’m not a part of. There is more to love than physicality. When I am away from my fiancee Britta, I need her, because she continually challenges me to closer to God. I need her for all the reasons God gave her to me. I never need her for sex. I never need to touch her or kiss her. Kissing is great and all don’t get me wrong, but that’s not what we were made for. We were put into each other’s lives for a much bigger purpose, and each day we see that unfolding more and more! Thank you Lord.
