When distance can make hearts grow fonder
When it comes to romantic love, although I do know of pairs who were successful in having long-distance relationships or LDRs, it is often challenge and can cause anguish. The typical kind of romantic love, I think, needs some degree of intimacy to blossom. And even if technology could alleviate that distance, it cannot suffice.
But there are instances when distance anchored on faith can make hearts grow fonder, like how one may lose constant communication with a childhood or teenage friend, but the bonds and battle scars built during one’s formative years are great foundations of a brotherhood that does not care for distance.
And when the time for reunion comes, no one can take away that joy.
John 16:20-23. I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one can take your joy away from you
