We just got back from another motorcycle rally. Rally at the Rivers. This one was in Paducah, Kentucky. It was held at the Heartland Worship Center. We got to listen to Jeff Allen on Saturday…funny guy!!
That’s just where we were this past 3 day weekend & that’s not really what’s on my mind right now………….
Have you ever wondered what went wrong in a relationship? Tell me I’m not alone…Tell me I’m not crazy…Tell me you understand… Whether it’s family or friends? Have you ever wished God would just write it on the wall? Have you ever tried to be heard, but to no avail? Have you ever been completely misunderstood? It’s so sad & unfortunate. It’s painful. I know you can never “go back” in a relationship. Who would want to? I do think you can start over. Start new. It will take some time. Forgiveness. Commitment. A reconnection, if you will. It will definitely take both parties, don’t ya think? Relationships are hard, aren’t they? They’re worth it, aren’t they?
We live in such a “fake” world, don’t we? I mean really…don’t shut me off yet…please hear me for just one minute…how many deep relationships do you have? I mean of real substance. I’m not talking surface stuff. I’m certainly not talking about Facebook, either, I mean come on! That to mean is pretty shallow…but, that’s what it’s suppose to be…it is what it is. So, do we use that so we don’t have to go beyond the surface with anyone? It’s safer isn’t it? Sadly, we’ve deceived ourselves! I’m on a rant, I guess.
I’m very very close to my husband. We have a deep relationship. Yes, we are soul mates. Best friends. We don’t have any close friends. Couple friends. Nothing. We want to. But we don’t. Maybe we’re too busy protecting ourselves? Maybe we just haven’t connected? Maybe we haven’t put forth that conscious effort? All of that, I suppose. That’s where I’m at today…praying about where I went wrong. Praying for new opportunities… reconnections… staying connected… new connections.
