Marriage Tips 4Life, The Minds-Eye of Marriage

October 5, 2015 in Christian Living, Marriage, Relationships by Lon

Have you noticed how time seems to be really flying these days...35 plus year years ago, I (like you) started a journey to a new and wonderful adventure. Kind of like planning a vacation, scheduling and arranging things in my life to be at a certain place at a certain time with a certain person.
Getting married...tying the knot...jumping the broom...putting on the ball and chain. (I'm sure there are plenty more and maybe some better descriptions of wedded bliss that would be appropriate here). And just like planning a vacation, there is a lot to consider, where do you want to go...how are you going to get there...who are you traveling with? Just like a successful marriage, there are so many choices of places to go...so many new things that await you. More good than bad we hope. Of course it depends on the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with too.
Like any good relationship, you know where you want to go, but making the choice of who that “who” is going to be, well, you're not going to find that in a travel book. (Although these days the invitation for finding a mate is being delivered far and wide in cyber space!) It is still the sight connection that really seals the deal. But not always just eyesight. By sight I mean all the senses get included in the emotions that we go through on a daily basis. You know...the moon and stars seem to shine brighter, the planets are in perfect alignment...everything is just right and you feel real good about all that is going on around you. What I'm trying to say here is that it is the “sight” part that we call the minds-eye.
Everything looks, sound and feels good in your minds-eye...you manage to solve any and all of your problems in your minds-eye...the world is a perfect place in your minds-eye...and so is having a successful marriage. These are by no means all of the elements that make up the meanings of love or even define the basic ground rules for carrying out love’s promise(s) for eternity. Especially when it comes to forever together in a good, happy and healthy marriage. I am not a doctor nor am I professing to know how to heal a broken or hurting heart. Although I did stay at a not so famous hotel once. But I digress.
I am here however, to rejoice in your choice to “hang in there baby” moment and realize the strengths you have to make decisions like the ones that last 35 plus years. There are so many wonderful bits and pieces to marriage that confirm man’s imagination and subsequently...his freedom! When one is free to love, think and dream...one is safe...the world as he knows and understands it...is safe. I hope the person of your minds-eye is the person you married and they make you feel safe.
