Sometimes the rhythms of life are soft and easy, the moon is full and the stars shine over us with gladness; it seems that holding hands is the easiest thing to do, and we found a place to give us long kisses; but there are times when the rhythms of life are not easy to follow; the clouds seem to hide the moon’s brightness and the stars seem to be too dim; we don’t feel the music, we cannot even hear it, and our skins barely touch each other’s.
Yet, we must learn to follow this rhythm too because it is part of our life.
When you don’t feel like dancing, light a candle, find his skin, start the dance, give your man good and reach for his hand.
Marriage is learning how to dance the different rhythms of life. Take off your shoes and dare to dance no matter where you are.
Marriage and Wine
One + One = One
