I know it’s been a really long time but it’s a year ago this month that Bryan and I officially started dating and I couldn’t think of a better way to voice how wonderful this has been to find this man.
I was a pretty broken woman after my last divorce. The year after that was a turmoil of challenges and adventures. I spent 2 years crawling back to God. On hands and knees. Trying to figure out what in the world He was trying to teach me. It wasn’t just that He was teaching me but He was molding me. I didn’t know at the time. I just knew that the best thing for me was to cling to Him. Otherwise I was gonna end up so very lost and angry and bitter. I finally allowed Him to mold me. And didn’t let the world mold me anymore. Not my family. Not friends. Not anyone or anything on this Earth. Because we know this is not forever but He is. This is only a fleeting moment compared to what our very distant future has in store. Our little human brains can forget that. He put us here for only a short time. He will be back and He will see who has stayed truly faithful to Him. Not anything on the Earth.
So here I am thanking God for where I am. Not that it’s been easy. By far has this been easy. But I know that with this man forging through all the trials and adventures of life is where I am supposed to be. That the two of us together can be strong for God and even stronger as we move forward together.
I can truly say we have a friendship that has promised to stay with each other through everything. That I hope is the example we can be now to others.
I have to give credit to my friend Selena Wilke for the pictures. Check her out if you like her stuff. She uses the money to help her church. So it’s a two for one for those of us who hire her.
