Hubby And I Crossed The Line


Once upon a time, there was a line between hubby and me.

Line of destructive priorities.

Line of selfishness.

Line of pride.

Line of shame.

Line of hatred. Yes. Yes. Yes.

There was a cross.

I saw the cross differently back then.

And so I wanted to run away from it.

After all it was heavy and left me bleeding inside.

But I wasn’t able to go far. It was painful to walk away wounded and bleeding.

I needed a healer.

And then I saw the cross anew

It stitched my wounds.

It helped me cross the line of surrender.

It brought me to the Healer.

Drawn To The Cross
by L. Mirabueno


I had the painting commissioned. I want to be reminded when I was drawn to the cross and not away from it. That there is no point in running away because love is all it is. It is not just cupid’s love but the love of the Father and the Son for mankind — for us sinners.

Jesus saved us on the cross. It is not a lovely sight knowing that the Father is grieving but — He loves us.

Jesus saved us on the cross. He took our shame and He is not ashamed — He loves us.

And where is my hubby in all of these?

In the title! 🙂


You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. – Romans 5:6

  3. A beautiful post.

    And something struck me that I think we tend to avoid thinking about or acknowledging: ” Father is grieving but — He loves us.”

    We forget His grief.

    Thank you Bended.

      And here I am again declaring that the post is God’s prompting. What my hubby and I had were true in the past but I can share it now comfortably. And yes we sometimes overlook the grief of God the Father — true as well in real life when we forget about the grief of men just because not all can wail just like women, lol!

      And yes I can feel right now how much I am loved. He loves me, He loves us. He love us! Love and huggggs to you Colleen! 🙂

    What a beautiful post, Sweet Spoon, about being drawn to Jesus! Thank you and God bless you!

      I knew something about Jesus since I was little but I only knew Him when I was drawn to Him. He is actually a friend to me, among others — yes, we laugh together sometimes!

      Indeed it’s a personal encounter. Others may think that my faith is not as deep because my prayers are short and simple; others may find me crazy because my relationship with Jesus is different — like I am comfortable with the thought of us having fun together but truly it’s different for everyone — and it does not necessarily mean that one is closer to Jesus than the others.

      Had I just talked too much again? Lol. Love and hugggggs to you Deb! Rejoice! Rejoice! 🙂
