In the midst of it all…

In the midst of the hustle and bustle…

In the tyranny of the urgent…

With the little people that need attention…

With the pressing business of the new week…

With the duties that loom large in the post-it notes of the mind…

Don’t forget…

to join hands for a few moments…

to remember the early days of youthful love…

to recall to mind the wonder of “us”,

to exchange meaningful eye contact…

to breathe deep…

to sip cold tea, or hot coffee…

to sit on the front porch…

and live.

Keeping at the forefront of your thoughts, that He who gave you this busy household, with chubby cheeks and high pitched laughter–

first, gave you each other.

And one day it will be just the two of you again.

Keeping always that One at the center who said, “A threefold cord is not easily broken.”

When you are only fixing your sights horizontal, the flesh wilts.

But when you both are looking up…THEN the beauty of oneness flourishes.

Hear the voice of the true Bridegroom this Monday morning…

“… Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

Song of Solomon 2:10-13
