An easy no pressure Valentine’s Day for me this year!
I am always glad to see happy couples. May God bless you with an exquisite marriage. I know it is not always easy, but it can always be well worth the effort. I know my sacrifice for Kathy has given me feelings of no ordinary measure, but our mutual sacrifice is what truly made our marriage sweet. If we could all experience this sweetness we would transform ourselves and do everything in our power to make our marriage the singular union and experience of life. Keep hopeful and trust in God to bring this to your marriage. For me it has been the most bitter without Kathy. I feel prepared to go to war, to lay my life down for some noble cause. But instead I am asked to reconnect with life, to stay soft when it would be easier to remain hardened. And so I try be hopeful that sweetness will come to my life again. That I will allow it to come. That I will allow myself to love someone again. I don’t know how this happens but I am hopeful it can happen. It builds upon one glance, one date, one touch, at a time; until I love again. If I expect to find love twice in one lifetime I hope you feel you deserve love as well; no matter how far off it may now seem, God can transform your marriage.
