Why are we in such a rush? Instant society.
For those who follow me on social media you may have been eagerly following the journey of our magi as they travelled across the piano to the fire place, until today they reached the manger.
Today the Church celebrates Epiphany, the arrival of the magi, but their journey had been so much longer, and there was so much studying before they even started the physical,journey. All of that time, was worth it, to reach that final destination and to be a part of a story we still tell today.
I have known my husband for over 17 years. In fact, this month we will be celebrating 17 years since he finally asked me to go on a date with him.
This year he bought me the most perfect presents for Christmas, my favourite perfume, a book of games from one of our favourite quiz shows, a cushion for the sofa because I keep falling asleep on the sofa due to my new tablets (and in my favourite colours), and a book – because he knew I would like the cover (that’s another blog I’m sure).
No hints were made, apart from possibly the perfume, he just knew what I needed and what I liked. He knows me.
All Relationships are hard, they take time, to develop to understand.
Everything takes time…
The question is are we willing to give it?
