"Even if we’re married for 23 years,
I still want you to flirt with me."

Anonymous said: What if your future forever is in another country?
Throughout my life I’ve always heard the saying “Love knows no bounds.” and I have always found this to be true. God’s love for us overcomes our multitude of sins, surpasses our own lack of faith, and covers our short-comings. If He can love me in spite of all of my failures as His child, then there is no obstacle that love can not overcome. His love for us provides the perfect example of how we are called to love our spouses, and everyone around us. A number of miles, differences in language or ethnicity, nothing can keep God’s will from being fulfilled. That being said, long distance relationships are far from easy. They take more dedication and more trust. I am a firm believer in the fact that if two people love each other enough, and God intends for them to be together, then they will be. If my future husband lives in another country, awesome. Then, each of us will have different life experiences to share with each other. So, all of this being said, I guess my short answer would have to be that “Love knows no bounds.”
I promise to love you:
at 6am when you’re waking to go to work, to school, or whatever road life takes you on, and when you didn’t sleep well, your hair is a mess, and your eyes are sleepy.
at 8am when we say goodbye for the day and you’re rushing out the door with a cup of tea and your car keys in the other hand.
at 5pm when you’re exhausted from the day and people have worn you out and you feel like crying, and falling asleep and escaping from everything. I will kiss your forehead, and wrap myself in your arms.
at 10pm when you’re heading to bed, even though you won’t sleep for hours. Especially when we become a human knot wrapped up in sheets and kisses.
at 3am when loneliness and sadness do not destroy you, but consume you and when you weep without an explanation, I’ll kiss your lips softly and tell you you’re the absolute best and that things will be better soon
I will love you when you grow old, and I will love you after that. I will love you if I’m no longer here. I will love you, I will love you, and I will love you."
YOU MIGHT GET MARRIED ONE DAY AND GET TO LIVE WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND AND DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH THEM AND DO EVERYTHING TOGETHER LIKE WATCH LATE NIGHT INFORMERCIALS JUST BECAUSE AND SEE THEIR SLEEPY FACE WHEN THEY WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND HAVE A SECRET HANDSHAKE AND BE REALLY WEIRD WITH THEM AND THEY’LL STILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT AND IF THE POSSIBILITY OF ALL OF THAT DOESN’T MAKE YOU SMILE IDK WHAT WILL
Dear Future Children
You are not a burden. You are not a disgrace. You are not a mistake, or an accident, or a misfit. You are a blessing, you are a gift, you are special to me. I am fortunate to have you, and if I ever make you feel any differently, please do not hesitate to tell me because I am wrong. You are mine and I love you. No matter what.
Dear Future Husband,
I graduated high school yesterday! I really can’t believe it. While I’m very excited to start this new chapter in my life, I can’t help but look back on the last four years and know that I will miss them. Leaving so many classmates and friends behind is bittersweet, but I know that God has big plans for my future… Plans that I know involve you and our future together. I can’t help but wonder if I already know you, if I will meet you when I attend UNA this fall, or if it will be sometime later. I’m hoping for sooner. ❤️
