Well, it finally happened… I called it in my last post (I gotta stop doing that) … we had our first tiff/disagreement/mini-fight. It’s not important what it was about for this blog purposes (obviously it was to us though). But what’s amazing is how we handled it. We talked it all through and came to an understanding. No hard feelings, no deal breakers. Just brought something to the light that we need to deal with, and even though it’ll be hard, we’re willing to go through it.
A little while later we prayed together for the first time. Yeah, we should have done that sooner. It was awesome though. I didn’t know he could pray with such honesty and passion, and he didn’t know I could either. It was the sweetest moment. I think I fell deeper in love with him at that moment, maybe even solidified some feelings in a way. We’re going to start a devotional for couples soon, just have to figure which one.
Like I said, I’m more in love with him now. Yes, we still have differences that we’re discovering and working through, but it seems like that’s the stage we’re in though. But we’re working through it with maturity. Maybe that’s a benefit of waiting until you’re older to settle down with someone.
He is the love of my life and I can totally see myself marrying him someday. He feels the same. It’s no longer an ‘if’ we get married, it’s a ‘when’. That doesn’t mean there’s been a proposal or ring or anything like that, it’s too soon for all that.
We’ve talked for hours on end about so many things. Except for a few theological differences and what we disagreed on last night, we think a lot alike. We’re discussing a lot of practical things and stuff.
All good stuff. We make each other so happy and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him and in his arms.
OK, enough sappiness 🙂
One thought on “a night of firsts”
Your doing the right thing, Tammy. Working through it…you’re not ignoring it and hoping it will go away. Something I did early on, and wish I had not. But we have been married 52 yrs. now so we have done something right, don’t you think?
