Here is my idea to combat street harassment. I could carry an airhorn around, and when men make harassing comments to me, I will blow it in their face. And if they call me a name or yell at me after, I’ll be like, “OH DID SOMEONE MAKE A HEINOUS AND OFFENSIVE NOISE AT YOU? WAS THAT UNPLEASANT?”
Within this Christian vision of marriage, here’s what it means to fall in love. It is to look at another person and get a glimpse of what God is creating, and to say, “I see who God is making you, and it excites me! I want to be part of that. I want to partner with you and God in the journey you are taking to his throne. And when we get there, I will look at your magnificence and say, ‘I always knew you could be like this. I got glimpses of it on earth, but now look at you!
How volatile and untrustworthy memory is. How naive we are to depend on such a fragile, temperamental mechanism to keep our most important records straight.
