True Intimacy


This morning during snuggle time with Gray, skin to skin, quiet time with no distractions, I felt a closeness to him and a feeling I hadn't felt in a while. Maybe since he was a new baby. We were just looking into each other's eyes, my head touching his head, and I wasn't busy reading him a book or showing him how to do or say something. It was just a closeness and a bond unspoken.


And as we shared such a moment I thought about the last time I really was intimate with the Lord. Where it wasn't me asking for something or bringing something up in prayer to him, or even when I wasn't praising him. A moment where I really didn't allow distractions. An intimacy where I just felt his presence and cherished it, allowed it to move me. Something I vow today, from now on, to do more.

And of course almost as important, when was the last time I shared a moment like that with my hubby? Where we don't talk about our day or the kids or what stresses us, have the tv on, or even try to make each other laugh. But, where we just hold each other with no other intentions but to be close. For which I vow today, from now on, to do more.

  3. Yes, yes, yes. I fid it hard to retain enough energy to give to my husband what I offer to my son all day. That sounds horrible, doesn't it? It's so `easy for me to snuggle with my son while he falls alseep and naps. Yet by the time he's alseep for the night and everything is cleaned up, I am exhausted and tell my husband I love him, but not really show him. :( The balancing act is quite the hard one.

  4. That was nice. I think everybody could use more of that. All the hustle and bustle of life gets in the way, and we often don't slow down to enjoy our loved ones.
