Intimacy – Humility

Last night, I had a bit of a – what shall I call it – tiff with my mother-in-law.  It was something small, that escalated, and she came to me to apologise.  But, it has bugged me – you see, ever since the huge fight with hubby’s sister, the relationship between his mom and I… Continue reading Intimacy – Humility

Intimacy – Boxes

I like counting in fours. I have always have. Every time I walk somewhere, I count my steps on fours.  Seriaaasssly. Maybe I shouldn’t be admitting this on a public blog – my little “blog box”.  Uh, just how many followers do I have?  LOL – but I like fours.  I like the number four, I like… Continue reading Intimacy – Boxes

Intimacy – Love Casts out Fear

1 John 4:18 NIV:  There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love. “The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” Intimacy – Love Casts out Fear — The Baby Mama (@BabyMamasTweet) August 15,… Continue reading Intimacy – Love Casts out Fear

Intimacy – Cleaving

Matthew 19:5 KJV:  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? I love the word “cleave” in this instance.  It really does give an onomatopoeic impression of holding on, and never letting go.  Although the verse doesn’t mention a wife… Continue reading Intimacy – Cleaving
