So This Is Love... So This Is What Makes Life Divine...

Life is such an adventure. 

You learn and grow and mess up and laugh and cry and play and live. You experience happiness and sadness and joy and companionship and loneliness and wonder and confusion and realization... You meet people and lose people and realize how important relationships are, or aren't. You sing and dance and pray and read and watch and listen and just go along on your way, and maybe you get comfortable in the niche you make out of life. Things go wrong and things go right and you make plans for yourself that you think are the best plans, until something happens that you didn't plan and it turns out to be better than you could have imagined (jeremiah 29:11).

Like, maybe you fall in love. You meet someone, and bam. Everything changes. You realize the song that your heart is really singing, and you know that this is it. You know that this is that crazy thing they compose songs and write poems and make movies about; this is that crazy thing you always hear about but were never really quite sure that you'd find. And maybe it's not always perfect and fairytale-esque - maybe sometimes it's hard. But it is, at the same time, the most magical relationship you've ever found with someone that makes you feel more than you ever thought you could.

It's someone that gives you hope and the room to dream big, but still keeps you grounded in Truth. It's someone that believes in you more than you believe in yourself; someone who encourages you and and apologizes when the fault is theirs (and a lot of times even when it's not). It's someone who brings you ice cream when you're sad or when you're stressed or for no reason at all; it's someone who holds you close and kisses you on the forehead and makes your knees go weak with just a smile. It's someone who's honest and rational (especially when you're not); it's someone strong and firm and protective and quiet and maybe completely different from you, but fits you like a puzzle piece. It's someone who loves you unconditionally,  because they understand that's how He calls us to love. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-6
