On the Faulted Foundations of Cohabitation

On the Faulted Foundations of Cohabitation

God is not an accessory for your car’s rear view mirror,
nor is He the accessory that completes your wardrobe.

Your prayerful relationship with Him in His Church
is not the discovery that He is your missing puzzle piece,
but that you are His missing puzzle piece.

Neither is your spouse or potential spouse an accessory.

Love knows not the statement I could do better than him.
Love knows not the question Could I do better than her?

Love knows not the seeds of mistrust
sown by taking before giving,
by receiving before committing.

Sands shift impatiently.
Love waits to reveal
and to be revealed.

Build upon rock.
