We escaped.  We headed to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  We needed to make a little time for us to build a little togetherness.

And yet…I’ve realized this morning that togetherness includes time spent not together.

I woke up early this morning to watch the sunrise on the beach….by myself.   It could have been one of those wildly romantic moments together.  My wife has been working hard and not sleeping well.  She decided to sleep in.  I’ve been taking pictures to share with her over breakfast together.

Why am I sharing this?   Yes…it would have been nice to share the sunrise with her.  It isn’t about me.  It was about her.  She needed her rest this morning.  We will share plenty of moments and have memories from our trip together…and one of them won’t be arguing about getting up early for the sunrise.

We are called to love our wives like Christ loved the church….selflessly.
