They say opposites attract.
It’s so I don’t spend our entire budget on kid’s clothes, makeup, and leggings.
I’m a feeler, you’re a thinker.
You’d still be wearing clothes from college, never realizing trends change.
I’d go way left, passionate and shouting. You’d saunter right, calm and reasonable.
You see the good in situations even when I swear it’s not there.
When revenge is tempting, you wrap me in God’s word.
I keep you up to speed, and you slow me down.
While I’m making sure to enjoy the present, your busy planning for our future.
I swear we’re messing the kids up, you insist we’re doing a great job.
All the things about you that drive me crazy, make us work.
We pull each other back to the center, focused on God.
I never knew why opposites would attract . . . until I met you.
I love you with all my heart, Benjamin.
“What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate” (Mark 10:3-9).
