Day 193

5PM:

Words without actions are like style without substance.  There is a mirage of beauty, but beneath there is empty: empty promises, empty threats, empty heart.

I have felt that less and less with my marriage recently.  There have been slip-ups, but mostly they are countered in the grand scales of things.  Don’t get me wrong, there is no balance sheet, just a feeling.  Feeling like actions make the words matter; the words have always been there, but the actions give them meaning, give them feeling.

Today my wife opened up a reminder of these feelings, these actions.  They were only words, but the actions behind the words made them feel, made them matter, showed the heart, justified the faith in love.
