If You Ever Fall In Love

This post was originally posted on my Oyler Creative business website blog on March 15, 2015. I am moving all of those personal blog posts over to this site to keep the Oyler Creative website completely business-related.

And this is just as true today as it was then.

I’ve seen this passage going around on various social media outlets and I very much like it. I’ve never seen an author mentioned, but somewhere, there is an author; these aren’t my words. But my thoughts follow.

If you ever fall in love, fall in love with someone who wants to know your favorite color and just how you like your coffee. Fall in love with someone who loves the way you laugh and would do absolutely anything to hear it. Fall in love with someone who puts their head on your chest just to hear your heartbeat.

Fall in love with someone who kisses you in public and is proud to show you off to everyone they know. Fall in love with someone who makes you question why you were afraid to fall in love in the first place. Fall in love with someone who would never ever want to hurt you.

Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks you are perfect just the way you are. Fall in love with someone who thinks you are the one they want to wake up next to every day for the rest of their life.

I am more than proud to say I have fallen in love with that very person. And I pray that my daughters will also fall in love with such a person.

BUT…It is not easy. That kind of love takes work, and lot’s of it. You don’t meet someone, and even fall in love, and have things magically turn out perfectly. YOU have to be that same person too. It is definitely a two-way street. Don’t expect something that you yourself can’t give – unconditionally. And the most important “secret” – make GOD the very foundation of your life, your love, and your relationship.

Running Away Part Two – Going to Ohio

This is the story of the second of three times I ran away while I was in high school. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to run away to Cleveland in the winter! This adventure took place in 1977 when I was a junior at RVCS.

My Story of Being a Runaway – Part One

When You Are Feeling Lost
and Wondering Where God Is

I have shared part of this post before, telling how I finally came to terms with my grief over my dad’s passing. But I’m sharing it again because the overall message seems to apply today for many, if not most of us. Right now the world seems out of control with the virus, quarantines, conflict,…

A Long Overdue Update

It’s been way too long since I last wrote anything new here, and right now there is no excuse for that, so I’m going to do a quick update on the past few months. Since I first wrote about my weight struggle back in October, I’ve been in a mostly downward spiral. Maybe I should…
