Whenever Lawrenta and I travel away from home, we always seek assistance from either HomeToGo, Booking.com or Airbnb. These SHORTLET agencies always have the best places just for you irrespective of your location, size, and taste. Through their service, it just seems like home, and sometimes you get so comfortable with this delusion that the place is really yours, and don’t want to leave, but have to, because you need to go back home, and so you leave bearing it in mind that you will like to stay here whenever you visit that city or country again.When the opportunity to travel again comes, since you already have a place to stay where you know you will be so comfortable, with so much excitement, you try booking, only for you to discover that the apartment is not free for your use this time around, because someone else is there at the moment or will be there during your travel dates, and that’s when it dawns on you that the place is not yours to come to anytime you just feel like, because it can be given to anybody at anytime, and it’s business, nothing personal on the part of the the Host.
But it’s personal for you, because you really looked forward to staying there again from the day you left there the last time. However, the truth is you will always find somewhere else, and most times better than where you didn’t want to let go off, then you get attached to that one too, and then get disappointed in your next attempt to secure it for another visit, because someone is there again, then you find, another place, and yet another place, and another place, coming to terms with the fact that non of these places is yours, and will never be, because it will always belong to the Host who will give it up for FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BUSINESS PURPOSES.
Thank God that marriage was not designed by God for shortlets, despite the fact that we have a Generation that will rather have it so. Today we have 32 year old who has been divorced twice and 34 year old who has been married thrice. In this diabolical design for marriage, nothing grows, nothing becomes, not even you. You never get a chance to become a husband or wife, father or mother. You never get a chance to become a builder of a family or society where people can find their place, and operate in maximum capacity within the confines of love that enables growth and progress.
You only contribute to the chaos that already exist taking us backwards where we no longer belong.Everyone married or intending to get married must never assume that if marriage does not seem to work, we get out to get into another one, because God’s thought on marriage goes beyond a wedding day, but stability, growth and progress for the society, which is birth through the unconditional love shared between the man and his wife, making marriage a place of purpose.Wouldn’t you rather want your Marriage to be a Permanent Place just as God designed?
