That's our promise here. Here in this place where two have become one. This union of man and woman.
That's what we call it. "It" being our commitment to lay it all out.
To communicate with such depth that nothing is held back.
That's what we offer one another. Truth with no covering. Vulnerability with no hold on self.
To show the good, the bad, and the ugliness of our hearts. To expose the wrong I have done; to tell him of the darkness, and still be loved. To bare my secrets of past, then to be cherished, and protected as a treasure in the present............unfathomable, to say the least.
With this as my reward, I will gladly endure the awkward, sometimes painful,
Bare Nakedness of truth.
Just a promise. A promise to let him know everything. To offer an open channel to heart, soul, and mind.
Such foolishness to believe that there might be things in one's life that are better kept secret. What a wild deception to suggest it permissible to withhold matters of the heart.
Secrets are a breeding ground for many kinds of darkness. The person with whom you are one, might not know the details of your secrets, but they don't doubt the existence of untold thoughts, feelings, actions.................your secrets.
Here in this place, where marriage makes us one, we offer all we have. Truth reigns powerfully.
Imperfect people. In covenant relationship.
Holding nothing back.
Trusting and believing.
Love keeps no record of wrong.
Love sees the good.
Love conquers all.
Love is worth the fight.
The best way to be in love is to be Bare Naked.
Loving and Living Life.................... Amanda
