I spent two weeks designing, planning, cutting the lumber, assembling, correcting my errors, painting, triming it out in aluminum, making an otherwise great 10 ft. x 10 ft. shed, AND ALL THIS TIME ALL YOU WANTED WAS A LIGHT HUNG?

Boy did I screw up.

(Quote) Joanna-615441 said: there are some basics that He must accomplish in our lives first. Are we wounded? To bring that woundedness into a relationship (or to have our future spouse bring unhealed woundedness into our relationship) does not lay very good foundations and peace is fleeting. Are we in need of growth or maturity in an area? Spiritual growth is on going and if we are not moving forward, we are moving backward. Some people (I'm guilty of it too) get complacent in their Spiritual walk and God wants to bring us higher.

Answers to these questions are found in heartfelt, humble prayer. I have a hard time with the humble part, I AM choleric. But when I do these things there are amazing graces that come into my life and I change, really change on a core, heart, soul, deep, bone marrow (thanks Nicholas) level.

Then we wait (Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord).

I also believe God likes to surprise us.

Blessings Myriam on your search. I pray God surprises you (heck BOTH of us) soon.

Well said Joanna. We don't have to be perfect but some things might be best to be worked out within us first before the other would see our beauty. Yet some can see the wonder in another who hasn't healed yet, and love would be all that is needed to smooth and polish her soul, i am thinking of myself and the love that my second husband offered, absolutly amazing how much love can heal!!

Joanna, I guess almost everyone here have the same question. I myself sometimes ask, "What takes him so long to find me?" Getting tired of it somehow so I just whisper, "Thy will be done Lord." I will pray for you as I pray for everyone in search for true love!

Maybe he needs to move closer, or further away. Maybe he's watching football or studying Theology. Maybe maybe maybe. I do know that if God isn't involved I am not interested.

TRUE. We each want to know. Kudos to you for speaking this out here! It often helps to say what many others are thinking too. Many are wondering and share your same sentiments! wink

My friend Pat met her husband Dan on here..She and I had signed up and become Forum posters around the same time. Pat and Dan became 'a couple' at about the one year mark of us being here.. They've been married 5 years now and I'm still waiting for my Dan.. Pat keeps saying "The man for you just isn't ready yet." That is cold comfort for someone who has been single for 21 years.. weeping

(Quote) Joanna-615441 said:

So where were you today? I hung a light fixture and in the process wondered where you were. It is not that I couldn't hang the fixture myself, I've hung many actually, but what I wanted was to see that look that comes across your face when you grab the ladder and tool box and say, "I got this!" I wanted to see the smug look of satisfaction when it was finished and the task accomplished. I wanted to hear your stomach rumble and you demand "feed me." (A chest pound with the fist would have completed the picture, you get my drift.)



 




So gentlemen, you want to know, "what does it take?" Touch my soul, get the annulment, honor Holy Mother Church, be real, strive for your best, cherish me, lead me spiritually and more than anything else understand me. (Maybe not necessarily in that order). Yes, some of those things take time, but if we cannot communicate/connect/share, it will never happen and no amount of emails or emotigrams will make a difference. Have I placed certain limits/restrictions? Well yes, and so have you. There has to be an attraction (as you prefer), there has to be an age range that I am comfortable with (as is with you). So if I don't take up contact with some one 12 years my senior or 15 years my junior, it doesn't mean you aren't worthy of a desirable, holy relationship, it just means I'm not her.



 




Have I met you yet? Maybe, maybe not. But please know that I pray for you, everyday, yes everyday, knowing that when we do figure it out, it's going to be amazing.



 




Your wife.



 




P.S. In the meantime, many thanks to my friends (John you're great) who are standing in the gap until you appear.
