And to be honest? It probably will continue to.
But that's okay...“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
|Once upon a time we met in Summer 2011 at a church picnic. He fell head over heels. I was dating someone else.|
The photographer claims she knew it was coming...
|I joined as a chaperone for the mission trip in Spring 2012, no longer in a relationship.|
Now I fall head over heels for this incredible spiritual leader.
Who also has all the charm of, well, you know, Prince Charming.
|So we work together,|
|We laugh together.|
|We serve together.|
|But life gets messy. Really messy sometimes.|
|We wonder if God is really calling us to play on the same team.|
A lot of time, tears, grace, and growth. Dragons being beaten. Dark forests being traveled.
And then one day...
|He proposes. I say yes.|
|And we live happily ever after.|
Well, kind of. Because the goal of marriage isn't to be happy...
It's to be holy.
And to get to Heaven, where we'll be eternally happy.
So we're on this journey together with the hope of a happily ever after.
Just kidding. It's only the beginning. And I'm beyond grateful to be walking this path with this man whom I admire, respect, and love so deeply. What a gift. What an incredible joy and blessing from above. Thank YOU for your faithful friendship as a reader, for staying with me through the storms and sunshine. Please continue to do so, for I treasure you and love sharing life with you. Pray for us and know that I pray for you.
Life is beautiful.
"Every person's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers." -Hans Christian Andersen
