World of Make Believe

This verse rings a bell to my ears because when I was still single and so idealistic marriage for me and building a family was as simple as 1,2,3. I believed then that as simple as loving each other can make our world go rounds. 
But children came and problems arise my wonderful merry go round world crumbled one by one into small pieces. I thought then that having a simple family of my own can take away all my loneliness that my mother left behind. 

As of this moment, I still felt the loneliness sometimes especially when I had to argue with my husband with so many nonsense discussions but I still thank God for giving me a loving, responsible and not so perfect husband (kung hindi wala ng thrill). 

Sometimes before I also believed that marrying someone can make my life complete but later on in my married life I have to realize that being married doesn't make me a complete human being, but the complement that me and my husband always made to each another makes us a better individual just like what in the bible said, 

Proverbs 27:17

"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another". so we can consider our spouse as the other individuals that can sharpen us and vise versa.

I am currently reading a book recently publish by Bo Sanchez though I was not able to download the entire book first the chapter only, but it's already out in the market (pero wala pang pambili hehehe). It touches my heart when I've read this, that according to Mother Theresa, "that the hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread". 

Mother Theresa was right, we are all longing to love and to be love. My husband and I had so many arguments in our 10 years of marriage, we had so many differences like family backgrounds, different principles, different goals, different likes. 

We are two totally different individuals, but I may say that we have one thing in common that we know how to define the word love in particular. I may say that I was lucky enough to found someone like my husband that despite our differences he doesn't stop there from loving me. 

And I believed that before we venture in this so called married life we are so sure that we are already two different mature individuals who talk openly about how not to hurt anybody and feel sorry for ourselves. 

So if someone's trying to ruin our relationship, I believed that they must be someone who's credible enough to believe in what they are doing. Because after many trials and after reading the first chapter of Bo's book, I am now sure that as long as we love each other we can survive, as long as we have God in the middle we will always stay where we are.

your post really speaks to me. And Mother Theresa's words are totally remove hunger is so much easier than to remove that hunger for love. Something I discovered...He can fill those places that nothiing else can.

That the hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. I love this saying, I have never heard it before.

I would say that the most important thing in the world is love. I think the Bible confirms that belief. Marriage is never easy. In fact, life is never easy. I'm glad you are finding the answers you need. I'm glad you shared your heart with us here today.
