earlier this week, this boy and i were talking about how we feel like we have learned to love each other so much more now that we are learning from our own mistakes and growing into the man and woman God intended for us to be– more than we ever have before. and i just cannot grasp the redemption i feel when i recognize that the Lord had the sweetest plan for me, and even when i tried to dream up my own, there was only one boy that my heart could ever really belong to. and this boy responded that quite honestly, the Lord knew the man he would become and was equipping him fully into that. but isn’t it sweet that the Lord planted a constant, forgiving, and mature love for some whimsical girl, even when he wasn’t quite old enough to understand it all yet?
—-going and doing and even dreaming are all strands of beauty that this life is made up of, but they are missing a sort of glint of light that you don’t even realize until someone reflects the light through the wind and the strands of good in your life and all of the sudden you realize that nothing is QUITE as brilliant without that one person.
