Hi! Unfinished Bride
Welcome to my blog! The Unfinished Bride is a two-fold journey for me, growing in both being a Bride in marriage and a Bride of Christ. They are synonymous of each other because honestly you can't be a Bride for your spouse without the other and be successful. I call it "unfinished" because it is constant maturing and learning, that is never reached to completeness because of the different stages of life in being connected to another human being that is going through their own process also. Being a Bride is loving the way God loves, which is a supernatural act; outside of your comfort zone, adjusting to something that does not come naturally. It's forgiving and understanding while at the same time discovering who you are and what you need in the process. Marriage is by far one of the hardest relationships to endure, but it is the most rewarding, revealing and loving union two people can make. It is definitely not for the weak, faint in heart, or the immature.
The title Unfinished Bride ironically states that I am no expert that has perfectly defined how to be successful in marriage. However, I have found out that knowing that, keeps me open to learn what God's Word says about how we should be married and open to hear the wisdom of those that have been through the stages of marriage and overcome life's challenges. I have been married for 20 years, not at all perfect or all happy years but I am a better person because of it. I am a mother of two, young adults; a son and daughter and have embarked upon another journey in my marriage: The Empty Nest. I was born and raised in Florida and relocated to Texas. As you read along, you will get a glimpse of my life and experiences. I thank you for joining with me and my prayer is that you are encouraged and enlightened. Laugh with me, cry with me, and pray with me as I do for you.
