Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo?
I love dreaming about my wedding, the love my future husband and I will share, the utter and abundant joy that I know will overflow from our marriage, and the journey we will take together. Of course I'm not naive enough to think it won't be hard at times and we both will have to work on our relationship, but that knowledge doesn't hinder me from dreaming about the gloriousness of it all. Any movie that integrates love into the characters lives excites my soul for the time when it will finally come to me...he will come to me and I to him and we will relish in being in love with each other. And since this is Valentines season, movies about love are on all the time for the next couple weeks. How it stirs me on the inside to know that some day, hopefully soon, a man of godly character will come around and sweep me off my feet and I will be able to understand in a tangible sense the lover side of Jesus. I know that Jesus is a lover and that He loves me more than I could ever imagine. But so many times I wish He would meet me in a physical form just so I could have a hug from Him. To feel, physically feel just how much I mean to Him. Someday my future husband will be able to show that to me. I know that he will be used by God to materialize that for me. Oh how I long for that day!!!! It will come, I hope, soon. Where is my Romeo?
