Here I Am

Because I can still remember all the prayers I thought you forgot. The nights I spent crying. Asking you what I did to deserve any of this. Because I was miserable. I was lonely. And because I felt forgotten. But then here I am. And I am only here because of You. Because you pursued …

Catch Me

And I think my biggest fear is that one day I’ll wake up and realize it was never real.  That it was too good to be true. That I went and did it again.  Falling for the wrong guy.  That I will wake up and I won’t have my best friend anymore.  That it was …

Amen

Lord, thank you.  Thank you for this man. This amazing and perfect man. This man I never realized existed.  This man who changed everything.  Lord, thank you.  Thank you for sending me a man who loves You more than he loves himself. A man who knows You. A man who fears You. A man who …

Falling Short

I wish I could figure out the words.  The words to use to talk about this.  To talk about us. See? Words are my life. They are the one thing I know. The one place I feel the most comfortable. (Well, besides you.) And yet, with you, I fall short. Every time, I fall short.  …

Here

I made it. Finally, I made it.  I can hardly catch my breath.  I never actually expected to make it here.  There was something always getting in my way. Mostly that was me, but I made it. I must have passed by this place a thousand times. Mostly in my head, passing the time until …

Date Night

I took myself on a date last night.  Just me. And you want to know something?  It was perfect.  Perfect because I didn't have to worry about what I was going to wear.  Perfect because I could just be without worrying about trying to make an impression. Perfect because I didn't have to worry about …

Just the Two of Us

So here we are. Just the two of us, again.  You know, you're setting a pretty impossible bar.  Because even the good ones fall short.  You did that.  You made me realize just how much I deserve. How much I shouldn't settle. And just how much I have settled in the past.  I wish I …

“God Hid Her”

Because I shared this blog with another friend of mine. It didn't apply to me because at the time I was convinced that I had found the man of my dreams.  He was everything that I could have ever wanted and I believed that I was finally done looking.  My kids loved him. I loved …

More

You wanna know something? There is never going to be enough time with you.  Like, ever. The truth is, had I known that it could be this good, I would have waited. I would have sat on a rock and waited for you.  Twiddling my thumbs. Patiently, well, almost patiently, waiting for you.  I wouldn't …

Waiting

I couldn't help but think that the sermon last Sunday was something just for me.  Oh, I'm sure it applied to other people and their lives, but there was no denying that this was just another one of our intimate conversations that just so happen to take place in a large room full of people. …
