I remember years ago we had a very interesting discussion with a group of  friends about soul mates,  this was a long forgotten topic until recently when life was rudely interrupted and came to a screeching halt.  Then I realized how much I needed mine…..

When you are in distress, you really need  someone to share your struggles; someone who will listen without judgment and show understanding.  The last 8 months have been a trying time punctuated with various challenges ,a loss of a beloved family member and now a gravely ill one. Oh how I wish my soul mate was  here to let me cry on his shoulder and to share the pain. It was times like these I feel my great loss…

To me a soul mate is someone who can finish the other person’s  sentences and know exactly what he/she is thinking in a given situation.

Even with the ups and downs in a relationship, the bond between soul mates is hard to break. You accept each other’s imperfections, and love through the good and bad.  Even during disagreement, you are focused on solving the problem and seeing beyond it.

With a soul mate, you feel you are ready and able to take on any feat of life, as long you have each other. As your relationship is based on your unity in Christ above everything else.  Even though you are physically apart at times, your minds are in tune because of what you have in Him.

A soul mate makes you feel secure and protected, like a guardian angel sent by God to be at your side. You cannot imagine your life without him, as he is not someone you can forget easily….

And even after 9 years, that emptiness still haunts you…

But I thank God for giving me a soul mate, even though it was only for a short time.

I am blessed and loved.
