AN OPEN LETTER TO MY NAMELESS BETTER HALF

Dear future husband,

I pray about you. A lot.

Obviously, not by name, because I’m not sure if I’ve met you yet. Yeah, there may be good men coming in & out of my life, but I don’t want my selfish ways to get in the way of the one God has for me.

My better half who is still out there, hopefully looking for me. 

I pray for the qualities I wish you to have…like patience with me, because at times I may be stubborn, forgiveness, because I know my past isn’t perfect, & perseverance because I can only imagine how tough times may bring for us. 

I also pray you’re caring, kind, compassionate, loving, big hearted, strong, & of course I still have my selfish wants of you being handsome, with gorgeous hair, a great smile, tall, tan (so our children have some hope)…

But last but most definitely not least, I pray you love Jesus. More than anything in this world. More than me.

I think about you- a lot.

Constantly throughout the day, especially here recently, I find myself thinking of you & how excited I am to do life with you. 

I hope you think about me.

I hope God is preparing you for me right now, because I may be hard to handle. I have issues- as most people do. I struggle with my image, self-worth, my past, my body, trust, and sometimes just feeling really low. 

But I love to be happy. I try to smile all the time. I think laughing is the best medicine. I love being around people, & I try to surround myself with like being people. 

I know I’m going to love you. I’m so excited to begin our journey, but I am not trying to rush it.

But I do think of you, & I think of you often. 

I do pray for you, & I pray for you more than myself.

I can only imagine what marriage is really like, but I hope you aren’t one to give up… I won’t quit. & you can’t either. I need you. & I pray you’ll need me too. 

With love,
