Him vs. Her – The window to his soul

Recently, I’ve been asking myself how it is that my husband and I have had such a quick turn-around in our marriage.  Since September he made the decision to go above and beyond what any normal husband would do, all in order to prove to me that he really wanted to make our relationship work.

I fought him for several months, not believing a word a word of what he was saying and figured he would go back to his old typical ways.  Six months later he has surprised the heck out of me.  He has completely changed into an entirely different person.  It’s as if God said, “Alright Michelle if this is what you want, your perfect wish is granted!”  And then instantly, he handed me somebody new.

At first, I thought an alien had quite possibly taken over my husband’s body.  He is actually so different, that I had to get used to him all over again and frankly it sort of scared me at times.  All of a sudden I had a stranger living in my house, telling me how much they loved and adored me over and over.  And it’s been non-stop for six months now.

So I’ve been trying to figure out what finally broke through my concrete exterior, in order for him to reach in and take back my heart; which had undoubtedly gone into deep hibernation.  After pondering this for quite some time, I’ve finally figured it out!  It’s his eyes… he is finally looking at me!

During our 23 years of marriage, he would never look me in the eyes when he spoke to me.  He just couldn’t do it.  I would ask him to and he just never could.  So connecting with him was very hard, because I could never really relate to him on a deeper level.

Now, when I look at him, he doesn’t look away.  His focus is completely on me and his eyes say it all.  He loves me and what more could a girl want!  He has finally revealed to me the window to his soul.  And I have to say, the view takes my breath away every single time I’m met with those baby blue eyes.  I can only hope that window remains open for the rest of our days.  I would hate to lose such a beautiful sight.

    The two of you looked so different this time around, I am so thankful.

  4. hi there Michelle , honestly , I am so glad for you that things have been turning better in your life . Nowadays, it is not easy to find someone who is really trying to commit in the relationship. Unfortunately , many men and women takes relationship for granted , but when you are alone for so many years without no one on your side , it is another story to tell. Congratulations ! Michelle , God indeed is awesome .

  5. Ahhh, I love this. I often speak of the twinkle in my hubby’s eyes, so much mischief hidden there, but also that he has taken the time to actually look at me, to connect. That’s everything. We’re now on forth,fifth honeymoon, whatever you want to call it, but it is like an awakening where marriage just gets better and better. We people will often speak of the 7 year itch or what not, but we seldom speak of the renewal, rekindling, the many opportunities we have to fall in love all over again.

    • All I can really say, is that it is only by Gods doing. Even he admits that he could not have changed on his own. I am simply amazed by the renewal of his spirit and the love he is showing to me. For the first time he has that twinkle IB. It’s amazing to me.
