I remember watching The Notebook over and over and dreaming of a love like Noah and Allie had. A love that was young, adventurous, faithful, fun and lasting... I even made a list of what I hoped for in a husband and enjoyed dreaming of our future house, kids and life together. Never did I imagine that the Lord would bless me with all He has. It’s surreal sometimes to look around and remember how I tried to do life my own way, time and time again, to just end up heartbroken and running to my Father in tears because my prayer to find “the one” wasn’t happening like I planned. Little did I know God had bigger and better plans, He just wanted my eyes focused on Him FIRST.
His plan was for me to marry a sweet boy I knew from high school choir with a voice that will melt your heart. Despite various external trials and tribulations along the way (loosing my dad to cancer, family strain, job loss, personal cancer scare, etc) we’d buy some land, build our forever home, and raise our 3 children here with love, laughter, fellowship, faith and service. I’m honored, to say the least. God has been immensely gracious to me all of these years.
All the glory to Him!
