The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.—Terri Guillermets
Spring, a time for family, friends, love, laughter, music, and sharing. This is also an intimate time for the two of you.
If this is the beginning of your relationship, this is your time for exploration of your friendship, sharing, laughter, and eventually love.
In a book I read last year concerning three Christian daughters in the Holy Land, one of the male characters commented that divorce is not uncommon in America, which comes from marrying for passion. True, we tend to follow our feelings into marriage, choosing a mate for passion.
Do we mistake lust for love? If so, maybe we should view the social, economic or intellectual point of view first and not rush into marriage. If we take our time, this could lead to a more meaningful relationship.
What’s wrong with getting to know more about the person you may be thinking of marrying? Isn’t it best to test your mutual compatibility first?
Discover what you both really want to do in life. What would you truly enjoy? Are you confident about what to expect—the ups and the downs of marriage?
Get to know more about yourself. What kind of person are you? What are your major life goals, values and interests? Which of these are the greatest most important to you?
I hope you are realistic (holding fast to reality rather than fantasy), and patient, unfearful enough to risk waiting for the right man. Remember, it is important you have a high degree of self-love and self-respect for yourself in order to care for someone else.
