Distance makes the heart grow…

The saying says that distance makes the heart grow fonder. But the reality is far different. Distance makes the heart grow… distant.
Time apart from your spouse will increase unrealistic expectations about them – you remember the good times through rose coloured glasses and you dwell on the painful times and they become worse than they really were.
Time apart from church will increase your unrealistic expectations on what church should be, and always make you feel less connected to people and the community.
Time apart from pray and bible reading will make you think the strength of your relationship with Jesus came from you, and Satan cheers as he slowly changes your idea of who Jesus is, until you love the idea of Jesus… The golden rule… Loving people… When they’re lovely.
Distant. That’s what happens when your distant.
