Partner Fills A Loving Need

A_Partner_Who_Fills_a_Loving_Need


It was as typical a divorce, as divorce can be. Sherry and Paul were fifty-something’s; clearly no longer suited for a compatible life together. A few years later Sherry met Robert. She really wasn’t “that into him” but he was a good guy and she enjoyed his company.

After five months of dating Robert, she broke up with him. She figured there was someone better out there for her. Sherry had a long list of requirements for her happily-ever-after, and Robert fell short.

Funny thing about her plan… it turns out Robert was her intended after-all. God gave Sherry a nudge. It took not having Robert in her life, to show her how much she missed him. Thinking too much about what we want, can distract us from connecting with a person who fills our needs. The significant others in our lives can be the completed task on a self-centered list of wants, or a partner in the joys and challenges of our needs. Are you asking the question, what is it I want, or who is it I need?.

For All the Single Ladies

I grew up believing that
every princess finds her prince.
It's inevitable.

My kingdom, on the other hand,
is full of frogs.
No matter how often I kiss them,
they remain stubbornly amphibious.

Where is the prince You made for me?
Help me find him.
Fish him out of this sea of possibilities.
My life remains Your tale to tell.

I remain ever-hopeful,
ever-trusting in Your narration.
Please grant me my happily ever after,
after all.

"Are you looking for love?"

Today's Spiritual Quote
For Christians and Muslims the great mystery is the fall: of human kind, but also of the angels. The great fall of the most beautiful angel, the lieutenant of the heavenly hosts: Lucifer. But Lucifer, as far as we know, is irredeemable; he is doomed for all eternity. Human beings, on the other hand, can pay for their sins, can change the fall into flight. end quote
