Things I’ve been learning - romance
It’s the most beautiful thing, to be known and accepted in this way, little by little, fear by fear, dream by dream - by a God who reveals the strong and unique woman waiting to be pulled forth from deep within me.
It’s the most exhilarating thing, to be known and accepted in this way, step by step, quirk by quirk, word by word - by a man who draws out and empowers the uncertain little person shyly hiding within me.
To feel the love of such a man is to feel the love of Christ toward His bride. Truly, it is the most wondrous, tender, sacred, and safest place to be, here in this love that transcends the self, taking the most risk for an intimate connection that unveils, then uplifts, the most authentic versions of man and woman, God and Bride.
