From the first day they shared a bedroom, they sensed the sacred quality of this chamber.
In this room conversations last until the wee hours of the morning.
They muffle their laughter under covers so as not to wake the kids.
Tears dampen pillows.
Comfort comes from the warmth of the body next to them and sleep is difficult when one is gone.
Here is where they form the bond to know what the other is thinking by merely catching their eye.
Trust allows them to process the difficulties of life out loud.
Dreams and confessions fill the air.
They endure such tense and awkward moments they are thankful for the dark of night.
The vulnerability occurring in this room softens their hearts.
The acceptance builds their confidence.
They are one in body, mind and spirit.
They understand God's edict, "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral." To disturb the hallow ground of the marriage bed would affect all areas of their marriage.
