"An escape is something that takes you out of the world you're in. This is not an escape, this is reminding me that when I get out of here, I have to spend the rest of my life in service to the Crown."
Yes, we are all dying, pretending that we will live forever. Although this is a fairly sobering poem, it's another valuable insight and reminder not to take the remaining time in my life and the people I love for granted.
Waiting to some means sitting on the sidelines passively but that isn't what we are to do as we wait for GOD to bring our mate. HE wants us to grow, to become more of who we are in CHRIST JESUS. As we develop the characteristics of CHRIST in our lives, we become strong, caring and compassionate. We learn to trust and hope and love more deeply. Aren't those all characteristics of a godly wife? Relationships aren't about what we get out of them but what we bring to them. ~Annie
