There was an AWESOME example in the Bible of how Jacob worked the 7 years for Rachel - got Leah for his wife, worked ANOTHER 7 years for Rachel again & then married her - but the cool thing - Jacob worked for ANOTHER seven years even after he married his love....he kept persuing her!! (Genesis 29:30) - I never ever noticed that....what a great picture of love....
Remember when you were first dating & all the stupid stuff you did for love? It was great hearing some examples of everyone, but it was funny because I think EVERYONE did the late night phone calls. Know what I'm saying? Those phone calls where you were on the phone & didn't want to hang up.
"You hang up first"
"OK - love you - click (saying the word "click")
"You didn't hang up"
"I know - I couldnt - I love you too much" - (Gagging yet?)
But you know you've done that too! How funny is that to look back on? Ricky & I would fall asleep on the phone talking & then the bad thing, he wanted me to call him in the morning before we took off for work - this was before the world of cell phones - & his line would be busy where he was still sleeping & had the phone off the hook from the night before. Oh the stupid things we did for love.
We were challenged to do the things that we did for each other when we first started dating. I told Ricky to go in the other room, take his cell phone & we'd call each other & talk to each other as we slept.....he just told me - we'll burn our batteries up in our phones.......so much for that plan! :-)
Anyone do anything completely goofy for love? We got keep working at it - gotta keep being goofy in love!
