Heart of the Journey

As I mature in life, I make finding quiet time more of a priority.  It enables me to settle my mind, which helps bring me clarity.  As of late, it’s astonishing to realize how distracted I’ve been.  Like many, my work environment (where I earn my living) has a method, but it’s within a chaotic universe.  Having gone through this cycle before, as I attempt to interpret my internal state, I arrive at the same conclusion...I’m highly perturbed.
During this quiet time, I commit to thanking God for my many blessings; and focus on what makes me happy.  One thing that comes to mind - a few months ago, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary.  I’ve been married to the same man for 17 years, in a row!
Our relationship has matured over the years...thank God for growth!  We’re not perfect, nor are we always up, but our resolve is much quicker.  I think that’s because we’re each more secure in our roles, which I have to say offers clarity in a relationship.  When I went from working full time to part time, that began my journey of re-prioritizing my life.  It transcended into the dynamics in our home.  More than ever, I really feel like I have a life partner who at the end of the day makes me feel supported and loved.  And I don’t mind that he still relies on the reminder alarm I set in his phone (and re-set with every new phone) for my birthday...I know :-/ but it's OK.

We’ve most certainly evolved and grown over the years both individually and as a couple.  With every cycle of marriage I experience, I am so happy I had the wherewithal over 18 years ago to try and date a good guy.  Although I was technically an adult, my mindset back then was so undeveloped.  Yet, I benefited from God’s unmerited favor, matured, and survived ‘the crazy’!  Through it all, I’ve been blessed in my journey with my love and happy to continue to share my life...as I hear the melody and lyrics of the musical genius Kem in my head.
Do you have that guy or gal that makes your journey that much better?  I’d love to read about it.  Please share a comment below.

Thanks for reading!
