Love of two

This is my commandment:
Love each other 
in the same way I have loved you.

Love each other with genuine affection,
and take delight 
in honoring each other.

Two are better than one.

Thank you Lord for the one you gave me

who loves me

who is willing to get wet with me

to swim along side

in the calm waters

and in the rough.

(John 15:12, Romans 12:10, Ecc. 4:9 NLT)

  1. These are such beautiful and precious words from God's Holy Word. I was blessed by your post, dear friend, and not only were the words wonderful, but the photos were also lovely!

    I am so glad you joined us at Roses of Inspiration! Have a blessed Thursday! Hugs to you!

  2. This was precious, Mindy!
    I love your photo. :-)

    Have a beautiful rest of the week.

  3. Sweetness! Such encouragement. Thanks for linking up at #ThreeWordWednesday.

  4. Beautiful pictures and words, Mindy! Thanks for this :).

  5. Oh Mindy...this is such a beautiful post. The photos are just so lovely and peaceful with just the perfect words. Enjoy your Thursday :)

  6. This is so timely. I hear the brokenhearted. The blindsided. The abandoned. They are all around and I want to remember that what I have with Monte is A GIFT. That no matter what leaks or gets dusty or goes over budget: WE HAVE EACH OTHER to swim along with. And that is worth more than anything shiney and new. Thank you for that reminder.

  7. I'm so grateful for the one God connected me with also. We've been apart for a couple days and I miss him. Looking forward to the weekend!

  8. Beautiful pictures and such a wonderful post. I always like reading these kinds of posts when we thank God for our partners. Lovely!

  9. Aw. You are blessed to have found that someone with you.
    The pictures you used are also lovely.

  10. Beautiful, Mindy! In all of life's moments--from calm to crazy-- it's such a gift to have a friend, partner, mainstay, and confidante all rolled in to one good and godly man. Thank you for reminding me to be grateful for my gift.

  11. Hi Mindy, another beautiful post, love the perfect!

  12. I've visited here 3 times now and enjoyed this more and more each time, Mindy. I thought I had commented but I guess I was too caught up in the beauty of it all - the written words, their meaning, the photos. Only someone who has known true love could write so poignantly about it. Thank you for some truly beautiful moments, my friend.

  13. Beautiful, both the sentiments and the photos! And they look so peaceful gliding through the water ... but the real beauty comes in knowing how hard they are working beneath the surface ... a lot like real love and marriage!

    So glad to have found you through #the4500 ;)
