When my husband sometimes pats himself on the back for marrying me and making my life so wonderful, I laugh and remind him of how “I would have made any man want to be a better man because I would have encouraged any man to work hard, to achieve great things, and to of course to make me happy”.
Well, I was watching my favorite morning show the other day when the story of a woman and a homeless man was featured, It reminded me of my saying. The story was told of how this homeless man asked this woman for money and she began to cry. She told him she didn’t have enough money for what she urgently needed in her life at the moment. This mans heart went out to her, he gave her all the money he had collected that day. Now this was a person who she passed regularly who was always asking others for a hand out instead of working to help himself.
They became friends and kept in touch after that. Because of their encounter that man went and found a job, and started working regularly, something he was not motivated to do before that chance meeting. They changed each others lives during a time of need for them both. Well, they were married recently and because of their story, their community came together and gave them a wedding with all the trimmings.
The moral of this story is that there is someone for everyone, keep your heart open for love.
The right person can and will change your life for the better. The right person could be someone who may look totally different than what you think you want, someone who has never really had a reason to be responsible but now will change because they found a purpose in you, a reason to be productive, a reason to do what they would not do for themselves for love, for you.
Gods plan doesn’t always line up with our shallow hearts, or our lists, so don’t be so stuck on what you think you want a person to look like, what they must have achieved or how much money they should make. You may find more happiness with less stuff once you find the right person to share life with.
Love is patient, love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not selfish, is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs… 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
