50 Years

I just read this beautiful blog post entitled The Real Truth about ‘Boring Men’ -and the Women who Live with Them: Redefining Boring.  It is all about what real romance and love looks like.  I loved loved loved it and know that every bit of it is true.  After reading it I got down on my knees and prayed to Heavenly Father.  I prayed that I would get 50 years with a ‘boring man.’  The older I get the less likely 50 years is possible.  Before long my prayer became pleading.  It is a righteous desire that may never come to pass in this mortal life of mine.   But then a thought came to me.  It is possible and sure that I can have 50 years with the most amazing man of them all.  And that man is Jesus Christ.  No matter who comes and stays or comes and goes He is lover of my soul.  “Real romance is sacrifice.”  Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice for me.  I love my Savior, my Redeemer.  He is the priesthood holder in my home.  He is ever faithful.  He is real.  Because my heart belongs to Him – He is mine.
