Intimacy is not purely physical

Intimacy is not just about sleeping with someone or being able to get physical pleasure out of a relationship. In a sweet and loving relationship intimacy is not purely physical; it’s the act of connecting with someone so deeply, you feel like you can see into their soul. 

Physically I love being with my husband but its hot working in Texas. Heat so I big long hug cuddling sitting watching tv is all I need. I melt in his arms when we need to ho to sleep, His hugs and words make my world perfect and make my stress go away. I love my husband so much, his not my number one, he’s my only one. ~ Karen Anderson 

A home with a loving and loyal husband and wife is the supreme setting in which children can be reared in love and righteousness and in which the spiritual and physical needs of children can be met. ~ David A. Bednar

Intimacy goes beyond the “physical intimacy” (i.e. sex) and, in fact, may exist even without it. It is a very close connection with someone else as a result of a bond that is formed through the knowledge and experience of the other. Genuine intimacy requires dialogue, transparency, vulnerability and reciprocity. It’s wonderful, although it is actually quite rare. ~ Calin Gheorghiu 

Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina. We might plead for prosperity, and we receive enlarged perspective and increased patience, or we petition for growth and are blessed with the gift of grace. He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals. ~ David A. Bednar
