4 years ago today, I was sitting in a church…watching my friend, Erin, get married. She was 23 and I can remember ‘praying’, “God, please don’t make me wait till I’m 23 to get married! That’s another 5 years! I don’t want to wait that long!” Apparently God has a different time schedule than I do, since that 5 years has quickly become 356 days! Where did that time go?!
As hard as it’s been at times to wait, I am so glad that God did not allow me to get married back then…I was so not ready for it! Over the past 3 years, He has worked so much in my life…changing me into who He wants me to be. There are times where I read back over letters I have written to my future husband, and think “wow…did I ever have a lot to learn!!”
With each passing day, God is teaching me more and more…drawing me closer to Him…desiring that the only relationship I have right now is with Him; trusting Him with the pen of my life story.
And, in closing, I’d like to wish Jesse & Erin a Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary!!!
