One Flesh

Genesis 2:18
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

I am the helper suitable for my husband. I am the bone of his bone and the flesh of his flesh. The Lord put us together for His glory, for companionship, for unity. We are the reflection of Christ's love for His Bride: the Church. 

I left my father and my mother to become one with my husband. The transition is not an easy one. Our sinful flesh so easily rebels against what God created. I ache for my parents some days; we forget that we are no longer two independents but rather one.

One flesh.

The Lord rejoices in this union. It is He who said, "It is not good for man to be alone." It is He who brought Eve from a rib and Adam from the dust of the earth - put together in union. It is He who placed me at Lance's side and he at mine.

Even when my flesh aches for worldly ways and stubbornness, my heart and soul delight in a union given by my Father. 

One flesh. Never again alone.
