I am diverging from my usual direction in this blog. At my age that is allowed. I am getting married (again) in about two months. The woman who said “Yes” to me is a wonderful lady. She is beautiful, brilliant, vibrant, a great mother and a great encourager. She has inspired me and stood by me since we first started seeing each other. Her encouragement has pulled me up when I needed that extra motivation, just to get through a day. She has needs, too, and I am dedicated to meet all of her needs, and hopefully all of her desires as we go forward in life together.
This journey certainly has not been without its bumps. Though most people we know are happy for us, there are those who are quick to criticize. “It is too soon,” “You should never remarry,” “You should try to be reconciled to your ‘ex’,” “It can’t be God’s will.” These and other comments have wafted to my hearing. I admit that I am not perfect and have made many mistakes in my life. I can’t undo those that are in the past, nor can I go backwards and start over.
My fiancé and I are in concert about our relationship to the Lord. We recognize that we have had failures and have gone to Him for forgiveness. We know where we stand before Him and look forward together, not backwards.
I am deeply in love and I’m not afraid to say it. I have experienced a closeness in love that is brand new to me. The challenges we have to face we will face together and together with the Lord, praying that those who are against us will set aside any judgmental thoughts and come along side us.
Those of you who have tasted my writing will see that falling in love does nothing but improve an authors’ perspective. Keep reading and watch for my next novel WITNESS IN THE WINDOW coming soon.by
