70 Years from Now

Working in skilled nursing I see a lot of different types of relationships.  My favorites are those couples that have been together for 50, 60, or even 70+ years.

But even with each of these couples there are a lot of differences in the relationships.

I’ve seen couples that can’t stand to be together.

Then I see couples that can’t get enough of one another.

Is your partner someone you want to be holding hands with 70 years from now?

For the latter example of these couples, just sitting quietly together while holding one another’s hand makes them happy.

I realize that even if I met someone today, we would not have 70 years together {unless we both lived to be almost 120 years old and I don’t plan on that}.  However, these couples have taught me a lesson.

When I find the man that is right for me, I want a man that I will be happy sitting quietly with 70 years from now and holding one another’s hand.

Peter tells us in 1 Peter 4:8, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”

Do you want to sit quietly with your spouse 70 years from now?
