My wife saw the Greatest showman, and of course, I got to listen to the soundtrack (a lot), and when I first heard the song ‘Never Enough’, not being a real good listener, I heard this song of a lady for whom nothing was enough – not the stars, the fame, nothing. She wanted more and more.
Then for some reason I really listened. You know, like when you’ve tried it your way four times and can’t get it to work, and your wife’s voice, who has been quietly suggesting a different way for fifteen minutes, gets through, and you pause to listen, and it works?
it’s the four words she says right before all of the ‘never enough’ over and over again…
“Because Darling without you”…
Truly amazing and profound. And now, that song is one of my most listened to and memorized lessons. the song is a lesson for all of us. A simple powerful recipe for true, deep and forever love.
God gave us our wife to complete two pieces of a puzzle. From all eternity He saw the life you could make together with her. The amazing, and beautiful life.
I take her for granted, because it’s easy to forget how deeply in love we really are.
We race around, because that’s the world we live in, but in all the racing, I lose sight of that wonderful person that I promised my life too, one, five or fifty years ago, and she becomes part of the scenery.
Let’s take more time, because tomorrow comes and the time we wanted to spend with our truest love today can never be recovered.
And let’s consider that really, truly, without our wives,
these hands could hold the world, but it’ll never be enough…
When we come home after a day or week or longer of being gone, we need to create a space and some time to prepare ourselves before we walk through the door at the end of the day. We need to prepare ourselves for children who’ve been bad, a late dinner, and a frazzled wife. We can handle pretty much anything if we are just prepared.
