beautiful imperfections

January 12, 2010

This morning my husband and I watched a YouTube video a friend passed along to him. I wasn’t sure what to think at first. I watched with interest to the very end as tears welled up in my eyes. I looked into my husband’s eyes; he looked into mine and the silent communication between us was deep and rich, heavy laden with emotion. It’s amazing the memories that are mined when least expected.

This could have been our story with me being the one remembered, but for the grace of God. Please take 3 minutes to watch it. You’ll be glad you did!

It is the little things that can enhance or diminish a relationship. Quirky little habits can become irritants if not viewed with proper perspective. Our irritation can turn into resentment which can be deadly. Or, when viewed through eyes of love, those quirky little irritants can become treasures.

As we were drying our eyes, my husband said to me, “I remember being so thankful to hear you snoring, knowing you were finally getting some rest.” How precious. How selfless. How full of love.

I want to express my love like that. I long to love so perfectly that my first thoughts are of him and not of myself. How imperfect I am. I’m so thankful for one who loves me through so many of mine!
