A few months ago, I was wowed by a site comment on a "The Drip" post. So much so, that I reached out to this particular TCV friend, thanking her, but also asking permission to reshare at some point. Thankfully, she agreed. The time is now! Why?
I believe that we are in a season of opening our hearts to shape or reshape our thinking. Her response was definitely a provocation of just that.
Thanks, Sharon Watson Evans, for taking the time to comment; to drop some powerful insight in response to the Relationship LLC post. Through your authentic thoughts and profound words, we see that life is an expander of wisdom. It certainly has been for me. Many thanks, as always, for consistently supporting TCV for years, my friend. Although this is certainly not the first time that you took the time to write a post comment, I'm so grateful that you allowed me to reshare this one with TCV family and the world. 😘
"I love this post. I agree that a relationship is somewhat of a business relationship that includes love, commitment, patience, and yes convenience. At a very young age, we enter relationships thinking it's all about love, laughter, and lust. Only to find out, those are only components. There will be times we have to negotiate with our partner in order to come to an agreement. We negotiate our feelings, our finances, how we are going to run the household, etc. It is a forever partnership (well it should be) that you commit to once you sign the contract (marriage license). Some couples dislike using the word "convenience" when they talk about marriage but truth be told, that is one of the many reasons we marry. It may be 99 on your list but it is there. The convenience of having someone there for support, to share expenses, and to take care of you when you are sick. I could give many reasons why folks get married. The bottom-line is that in order for a marriage to endure for years to come, we need to approach it as though it is our own business - put God first in the marriage, commit to the marriage, work hard for the marriage, and respect the marriage.
