The thing is, this vault can be the most prized possession in your marriage. Storing sacred memories, treasured moments, amazing adventures, years of hugs and kisses, your youthfulness, your strength.
Funny how every marriage goes through the seasons of for better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness and in health til death do us part.
Not long ago I found this vault in my heart filled with goodies I never knew existed. It was if it revealed itself when I needed it most.
See, life throws us some blows at times. The kinda of blow that truly can leave us down for the count. It literally takes someone from the audience screaming get up, get up, to cause us to keep fighting.
For me it has been the sweet experiences I hid in my heart. My husband has been through a lot in his health. Causing some of the memories we could have been creating to pause for a sec.
But GOD in his ultimate wisdom gave me a key. To precious moments from yesteryear.
He showed me that every good experience in my marriage has been stored in the vault. So I took the key and unlocked the door.
To my amazement,
The tears streaming down his face as I walked down the isle. Roses, candy and balloons. Dinner dates, walks in the park with him holding my hand. I saw many nights with phones lying on the pillows left behind as we fell asleep. I saw so many cards with hearts encircling our names. Tears that fell from our faces as each daughter was born. I saw the times he would hire people to purchase me gifts when he couldn't be here to get them for me. I saw the times he pushed our daughters on their first bicycle ride promising to not let them fall. I saw hospital rooms where he wouldn't leave my side. I saw how I he has always been by my side wiping away my tears as we closed the coffin to love ones so dear. The list truly does go on and on.
When seasons has change as they do, take time to open the vault. Go in and rest a while. Look back at all the precious moments that you once shared.
Don't forget what brought you together as the seasons change.
Just like spring offers us sweet smelling flowers. The Fall has something beautiful too. So let's not get caught up in what were missing.
Join me as I embrace all that I have.
A man that loves me in spite of my short comings, still sees me through eyes of his youth and loves me more today than he did yesterday.
Allow your love to continue to grow.
Fill you love vault daily it is a treasure to behold.
