One Man, One Woman

My husband and I had been married for a few months when this memorable day happened. It was our first conflict and makeup as husband and wife. Even before marriage, we always agreed to resolve conflicts quickly, at least before the sun went down, and this day was no exception. We lived in a two-bedroom apartment in a high-rise at the time. I had recently bought some pots of different flowers to put on our balcony to give it more color, but my husband was loving his orchids, growing lots, and I didn't like them much at the time. That's what we disagreed about, though it was very brief. So while my husband was picking our car up from the mechanic, I decided to grab the watering can and water them all.

I was able to let it go, after all, they were just flowers, so it wasn't worth it. At the bottom of the building where we lived was a little shopping place with a supermarket, food court and some other shops and I would often go shopping there. I went down there to buy food for my husband's favorite dinner because despite the conflict I still wanted to show him I love him. I'm so glad I made that decision because when my husband came home, he told me he read in a paper about a couple who were arguing about something so trivial, and then the husband died suddenly, thus never resolving the conflict. He said it made him think of us, and how glad he is that neither of us is the shouting type, despite our few differences.

"I made your favorite," I told him when dinner was ready. I had made steamed veggies tossed in butter with a side of fettuccine, and he thanked me graciously. After praying to give thanks to God, we talked over dinner, and I told him I didn't care about the orchids being here anymore, and, in fact, I think I could like having them around because they'd remind me of him. My husband was so happy to hear me say that. He held and kissed my hand, and stated that he'd move them to the other side of the terrace to make more room for my flowers. The reason he loved orchids was because they reminded him of his childhood at his grandparents'. He continued to grow them for about 21 years.

After watching TV for a little while, we suggested a makeup dance before going to bed for some more "making up." We danced to "One Man, One Woman" by ABBA, which is, in my opinion, a great makeup song to dance to for husbands and wives.

"Baby, just as God will never leave us, I'll never leave you. I don't care if you fill the house with flowers, I will love you forever, and I'll stay with you, and be yours forever," I told him.

"I won't leave you either. I'll take care of you; I'll protect you. I'd rather have you than anything else. You're more beautiful than all the colorful flowers put together. I love you, my darling."

As the third chorus of the song was sung, both of us briefly teared up. We gently wiped each other's tears away and then we started kissing. As the song drew to a close, my husband lifted me up in a bridal hold and carried me to our bedroom.

"Be right back," my husband whispered, and that gave me time to prepare myself for him. I took off my dress, leaving me in a little white lace dress. I lay back as my husband took his shirt off before climbing over me. I gently touched his face as he kissed me. The kisses started off gentle, then gradually got more passionate. My husband helped me take off my under-dress before slipping out of his boxers.

I slowly spread my legs, and I felt his tip massage my entrance before slowly going in. I took my handsome, darling husband in my arms and caressed his body. I planted kisses on his cheeks, feeling intense love for him. My husband hugged me close to his heart, thrusting gently at first as I responded, moving around a little bit giving him pleasure.

"Oh yes, baby right there!" He shivered as I rubbed the back of his neck. I could feel his hot, shivered exhales on my chest before he kissed me there. He kissed and caressed my breast while he massaged my lady place with his almost rock-hard man part. He then started to go a little faster, pleasuring me intensely before I came suddenly, and I let out a sharp cry as my body twitched, responding quite favorably to the orgasmic sensations. I felt my husband's man part pulsate inside of me as he exploded in ecstasy, holding me tight.

After we had come down, my husband cupped my face, and I took his hand into mine as I kissed it multiple times. My husband kissed my forehead and my cheek before digging his hand under my head to embrace me some more. After we had caught our breath, we lay side by side, embracing each other, my breasts pressed up against his chest, and that's how we fell asleep, enjoying the touch and smell of each other.

    Harper, what a meaningful memory of an experience that set the path for these following years - knowing the real priorities of what is really important and what is not!

    The sex was tender and hot too! I like how when he stepped momentarily from the dance - that both of you had hot intentions for that moment! Both of you shedding clothes. I always like how you both cuddle long after cumming. I personally like the smell of my wife's and my sex - but we usually cuddle a bit - then clean up to save from having to do the sheets too often. One thing I love about hotels - we don't worry about the sheets?

    Still loving your stories. God bless you both! LH

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words! May I just ask what you meant when you said "he stepped momentarily from the dance"? As you know I love hearing the parts you really like 🙂 there is more coming, and two are already on the way so stay tuned, brother! God bless you and your lovely wife too!

    • Lovinghusband says:

      Harper - I mistakenly linked it to s pause in dancing. It is when he said,"be right back" - after carrying you.

      I'm glad that my favorite moments commentary encourage you! I don't think I have a formula for what I like in your stories. Since we are about the same age and have been married about the same length of time - I think I feel a different level of connection with your stories. Same goes with Gina and Ben's stories, Plus, I am your ABBA buddy?

      Looking forward to your next stories. As always, stay focused on Christ first and foremost - and not the gifts He gives us. As we do, His blessings abide! Thank you my friend. LH

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      Ditto, brother! Some are on the way and I can't wait to read what you have to say! Thanks for answering and forgive me if I don't know what certain phrases mean, yes we do have those things in common and ABBA yes we're going to a concert with impersonators again in June, so hopefully a story will come from that, as there will no doubt be nostalgia! Oh, we absolutely do keep Christ first, it's a no-brainer - and I can vouch He has helped us, answered prayers for us and showed us mercy and blessed us. Praise Jesus! Btw, what date is your 30th anniversary? God bless you brother!

    • Lovinghusband says:

      Harper, you would be interested to know - we've been listening to a lot of ABBA in recent days. Very fun! LH

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      That's lovely! We cannot wait the the concert in June! The 3 of us are going on June 24th. Is that anywhere near your wedding date by any chance? If I don't say it then, have a happy and HOT 30th anniversary! Blessings, brother 😀

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      The concert, by the way is one of those ABBA impersonator concerts (like "Bjorn Again") - this one is to celebrate 40 years since the release of the song "Dancing Queen" which also happens to be the song I danced to when my husband saw me for the first time ^_^

      We've been to those before as you know, and if you remember from our anniversary story, you can even hire the ABBA acts for events and stuff like that. We're in for big time for another nostalgic night! I can almost guarantee a story will come up from that. We'll see! Bless

  2. Lovinghusband says:

    Sounds really fun! I probably don't have as many as you - but I have many memories associated with a good number of ABBA songs. Memories of driving in the car with my parents on a short vacation - with it playing all the way through. The range of emotions from various songs is amazing. Some songs go well with excitement and driving around - others with laying down and holding one another quietly. Your ABBA buddy - LH!

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      Well, we are of that generation! Plus I spent a lot of my teen years in Europe, especially since I'm of French and Dutch descent (and yes, I speak the languages) and their music makes me say "Praise God"! I agree, different songs are good for different situations! Blessings, brother.

  3. JAM777 says:

    So beautiful Mrs. Thornton! 🙂
    I love how you paint a beautiful picture for us as you write your stories! Have you ever thought of writing a book?

    Oh and you definitely invoked some urges in me! Its a fun thing to think that somewhere I am already married and enjoying my wife and the sweet blessing she is. Remembering and saying a prayer of gratitude for my mentor, Mrs. Thornton!!! 🙂

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      Oh you are so sweet! You remind me of my young nephew, he's about your age. What kind of book are you talking about, like a bio? I haven't really thought about it that much.

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      I have... but I'm sot sure yet. Yeah you do! He's a lovely young man, he's been through some tough times recently, but he's pulled out, thank God

    • JAM777 says:

      What do you mean by that, if I may ask....?
      That's good to head. Saying a prayer for him! 🙂

      And have you heard anything from Passion recently? She seems to have disappeared...?

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      I mentioned that in another post. But he's a lovely young man, like you and thank you for your prayer.

      To be honest, I didn't know PassionForChrist disappeared... I know it sounds bad, but I've been so busy with my own life it didn't occur to me. I hope the dear sweet young lady is alright 🙁 I'm a little worried now, bless her.

    • JAM777 says:

      He sounds like he has some awesome potential! 🙂

      And it's all good and yeah I just hope nothing happened to her or the whole thing with this Alex guy....

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      Thank you so much for keeping me lovingly wrapped up in your heart and mind, Juicy!! You're super special to me - someone I cherish deeply, respect and look up to. Biggest love and blessings to you! 🙂

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      Hey, dearest Jam777, I'm right here 🙂 Sorry for having been a bit silent in the past few days... I kept track of the comments but didn't feel like I could add anything of value at the moment... other than that, I was awaiting to hear from you over mail but I guess it hasn't reached you yet (I'll clear that with the sweet admins). 🙂 Thank you so much for missing me when I'm gone, sweet Jam777!! Your goodness of heart is such a delight and it means a lot to me! And dear Harper, no worries, it doesn't sound bad at all - I know busy. Just like Jam777 said, it's all absolutely good. Sending you a hearty hug 🙂

      No need to worry, dear friends - nothing happened to me and I am a 100% through with Alex. I had reached out to him one final time to plan with him how I could get the gifts I bought for him to him. I just wanted to get them where they belong, nothing else.... I also told him that he doesn't have to meet me for that - he can meet up with my friend to get them - and, well, the jerk replied with another outright lie to me - he came up telling me how he was gay and how all his friends were gay and Christians (a cheap lie to just get me gone). I told him playing out the gay card was ridiculous and immature - a simple "I don't wanna meet you and I don't want your gifts" would have done it. He thinks playing the gay card on me would shock me and make my conservative Christian self flee from him - but he is just naive to think something like that would shock me out of my socks and make me run... I know this day and age, and I'm not judging superficially but by character - and I told him I know some gay people and, unlike him, they are honest to those they interact with and treat the ones they are connected to with respect. Alex is not gay. He is a liar. I was clear from the beginning that I want honesty and us being upfront (no games, no beating around the bush) and he agreed. At any point he could have just told me "hey, this is going too fast" or "hey, I don't think we fit together - let's go separate ways", and that would have been fine. Why he couldn't just be honest, I don't know - honesty is really not that hard. My friend told me something that makes sense to me, as I informed her about this final exchange and how ridiculous he got now... she said:"this fantasy, in his mind with you, started becoming too real the closer it got for you to be here... he was going to face whatever reality he lives in once you were here, you know what I mean? He started pushing you away slowly because he didn't want to face it... whatever "it" is to him..." I think she nailed it. Whatever his intentions truly were/are in all of this, I'm at peace and in good spirits, have taken proper precautions, and do not regret any experience I was able to make by the Grace of God. I learned some valuable lessons and am grateful for God's guidance, protection and correction through it all. God is faithful to make it all work out for good on my behalf - and God will repay and vindicate according to His perfect will.

      Thank you for all your love, Jam777 and Harper!!! It means the world to me! I love my MH home and family and friends. You have been true and awesome friends through every high and low of mine! Thank you for always having a place for me in your hearts and in this sweet and loving MH community!! <3 🙂 God bless y'all!!!

    • JAM777 says:

      Hey, there you are! Sorry about that, just wanted to make sure you were okay. I was just concerned...
      And of course you are missed! 🙂

      And thank you Passion and yeah I haven't got it yet...
      And that's disappointing....
      I'll pray for him too!
      And you do know that you can put your email instead of your name at the bottom of your post, right?

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      No need to be sorry at all, sweet friend 🙂 To be thought of is a most beautiful gift to receive from another's heart. You are all the more adorable to me for caring so lovingly about me - I appreciate your Christ-like heart so much!! Thank you for wanting to make sure I was ok!!! You are such a blessing!! 🙂

      I didn't know about that... I just know that I could post it (for a limited amount of time) into my author's bio section (which you can access through my post)... but I personally would prefer to do it through the Admins because if I do it on my post it would be public and I couldn't know who else would catch it before you do, before I'd take it out of the Bio again... Getting it to you through the Admins' help would allow me to keep the email private, as you alone would receive it.

      Let me see... Here is my suggestion... Tell me a time (CST) when you know you will be sitting at your computer tomorrow (Sunday), checking out MH. I'll confirm it to you. At that time, head over to my Bio page - I will have added the email for you there. I will keep it up there for 10 mins. Once you got it, please leave a comment on here (Harper's post), just shortly letting me know you got it - so I can be sure that who I'll hear from is you 🙂

      Let me know if this would work for you. 🙂

    • JAM777 says:

      Oh okay. Sounds interesting and yeah I would not want to put you in a compromising situation. Well the time I would say, would still be open for anyone though... every recent comment is visible at the bottom of the MH page...

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      The time would be open for anyone to see but most people (I believe) don't know where to find my story - it doesn't come up when you search by my name. So, as long as you don't mention anything about the story on here, we can give it a try this way. I'll cut the 10 mins to 5 mins. That should do too 🙂

    • Harper Shelby Thornton says:

      Oh honey, we were worried! Thank God you're ok! As for Alex... may God have mercy on him. That's the nicest thing I can say

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      😉 Thank you, dearest Harper!! You are such a sweetheart!! Grateful to be covered in spirit by your love! 🙂 God bless you!!

      Ps: Jam777, if today should turn out to be too busy for you, you can also tell me a time for Monday. Whenever it would accommodate you best. I'll be there 🙂 Have a blessed day at church and in service!! God bless ya!!

    • JAM777 says:

      Hey Passion
      Ahhh, well said and good point!
      Let's go for today (10/24/16) at 13:15 (CT). I'll do my best to be ready at that point!

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      Hey Jam777, sorry I missed the first time - I'll be ready for the second, tomorrow morning, 7:15. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time!! Blessings to you!!

  4. Deane says:

    @PassionateforChrist —I'm new here, but I've read a lot of your comments over the last few days. I see you're a young woman with a real heart to follow Christ and glorify Him in all that you do. I'm so sorry to hear what's happened to you at the hands of Alex. Nothing hurts more than betrayal by someone you've trusted. My heart goes out to you and I'll say a prayer for you right now. May the love of Christ envelop you and heal you, my sister.

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      Thank you so much, Deane!! Your words so blessed me. Thank you for the brotherly love!! The compassion and tender care I am blessed to receive from the MH community is such a precious treasure to me, one that proceeds straight out of the heart of God in Christ Jesus, and I so cherish and appreciate each and everyone of you. Thank you deeply for your prayers, MH, past and present alike - they sure kept me and are one of the greatest gifts to be had! 🙂 It is true that the betrayal hit hard, especially in the moment, mostly because it was just simply so useless, so unnecessary to have it happen this way, but greater than any hurt my heart had to bear and endure throughout the seizing in faith of the opportunity given unto me with Alex will be the growth and fruit God can and will work out of it in me. What was meant for harm, God will use for good. Because He is the Rock I stand upon, I cannot be shaken to my core. For this I am forever thankful. I know who I am and whose I am - a child of God. This betrayal will not cause me to change who I am by His design - my heart will not love less because of what happened... my capacity to love is unbroken, and if anything, it will continue to grow further as God continues to touch my heart and keeps filling it up. I will not lose my ability to trust just because my trust was abused by one who didn't realize nor value what he was entrusted with by God, by His Grace. God wouldn't have allowed it if He didn't already have a mighty good plan to bring forth great fruit to His glory out of this experience and blessings to not just me but other people He may bring my way on the journey that is still to come. This is for certain, nothing is ever wasted in the hands of our loving, mighty, and gracious God 🙂 Praise unbroken, be His forevermore. God bless you, Deane!! Thank you!!! And welcome to MH!! We love having you here with us 🙂 Blessings to you and your precious wife!!

    • Deane says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, PassionForChrist! You've got such a beautiful heart. You're such a treasure here yourself!

    • PassionateForChrist says:

      Thank you!! That's so encouraging! I strive to make the right choices - those that would please God... I'm glad that He is merciful to yank me out of stuff that would not serve His purpose, especially when I fail to see it clearly or fail to recognize it and act accordingly. I'm glad that God takes us step by step and teaches us through everything - a work in progress in His hands. 🙂
