It has been about a month since I took a step back and actually breathed. Tonight, I had things to do and did none of them. I will deal with the consequences tomorrow. Tonight I feel homesick, or heart-sick, or tired or something. I feel weary, but I'm not writing to complain, I promise.

Today I heard something challenging women, young women especially, to go after men who exemplify a particular verse in the Bible. This, darling, is a classic example of oversimplification, but I still wanted to share it with you. "...oh man of God, pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life for which you were called..." 1 Timothy 6:11-12

My prayer is that God will make you into this man.

1) I ask that you will pursue a wild and passionate relationship with God before anything else.
2) I ask that you will not love the world.
3) I ask that your mind and heart will stay guarded from evil.
4) I ask that you will seek clarity of vision and trust where God leads you.
5) I ask that you will be a man who prays.
6) I ask that you will begin and continue to walk in First Corinthians 13 love in all aspects of your life.

Those are my prayers for you. I don't care about anything else more than this.

I am so happy that someday you and I will get to spend the rest of our lives together. I know I don't have the slightest idea what marriage is like now, and I know that we both are going to make 300 mistakes a day. Understand this: I would rather make 300 mistakes next to you that live perfectly and be on my own.

You're my favorite part of me.
