I think it’s pretty sweet. What? What’s sweet?
Oh, you know the way you always check in with your husband before committing to do anything.
Not necessarily the word I would have used.
But, yeah, I guess I do “always check in” with him.
And he with me.
Because we’ve made it our practice to think and act as one.
Some people think this is sweet, like my friend.
For other people? It makes them shudder. Like we’re somehow just too “into” each other.
Do I ever feel stifled? Hindered? Slowed down by this whole “oneness” thing?
Admittedly, it was a new way for me to look at life – this life we’re now sharing together – but the Bible states we are no longer two people like we were before.
We are now one flesh.
So what exactly does that mean?
Surely, not simply that we sleep together.
Not that it isn’t important – because it is – but it’s got to mean more than that. One flesh is mentioned in such a way as not merely to be a matter of going to bed with him.
The two shall become one.
No longer he and me ... because now it’s WE.
And you know what we have found? It takes a little – okay a lot of – practice and intentionality. We have to purpose to think and act as one.
