Love and all the Gushy Stuff
Have you ever been in love before? Ever felt the butterflies, the rush when they walk into a room? Do you remember specific things like the way they smell, the way your hand fits into theirs, what you wore on special dates? The comfort you have in "knowing" he will be the one by your side to face the day, to jump over the hurdles, to do life with.
Great Love Vs. Adequate Love: Is there a great Love out there for me? I was in love once. I miss that feeling. But what I have to look forward to is this: First dates, First time he reaches to hold my hand, First Kiss, First "I love you." I look forward to my private thoughts of: "Is he going to open the car door for me, I hope my parents, brother and sister like him, Wow he loves Jesus a LOT, woahhh... did he really just do that for me? He makes me feel like the only girl in the world, I have so much respect for this man, He inspires me to be a better woman."
So I wait patiently for that great love for now. For now, I listen, I be the best sister, daughter, and friend I can be. I pour into the relationships in front of me. I love Jesus with all my heart, and I continue to let him shape me, as I learn what it means to be a wife someday.
So Honey, whoever you are, wherever you are, I pray for you. Love Jesus, and the rest (me) will fall into place.
