A Letter to My Future Husband.

Original pin
**I thought I might share an intimate peak into my heart today. I encourage you as young ladies, to make your "list" for your Prince Charming. Not to be unrealistic, but to place your hopes high in a God who gives us our hearts' desires.**

To my future husband,

I've been waiting my entire life to meet you. To fall in love with you. And someday, I know, God will give me exactly that chance. Until that day, I wait patiently (and sometimes not-so-patiently) to discover the man you are. 

So I ask you to please promise me...

To always hold my hand in private...and in public. To kiss me even when I least deserve it. Remind me everyday that you love me, even if that simply means the brush of your hand across my shoulders or a wink across the breakfast bar. 

Talk to me and talk often. Promise to always tell me about your day and let me share mine. 

Always laugh with me...and tell me when my jokes don't make sense. I want to spend the rest of my life with you laughing. 

Lead me closer to God. Remind me why I love Jesus by the simple act of your faith. Be a man of prayer. Pray with me every day and share what God is teaching you, with me. Don't place bars across your heart. Be honest...even when it's not popular. 

Care about my interests and ask about my writing, support me in my dreams. But tell me when I'm stumbling down the wrong path. Love Christian music, but not be opposed to a little bit of country every once in a while...let me ramble on about my latest fiction obsession. Dance with me in our living room, even though I can't dance. At all.

Hold me when I cry. Take me in your arms even when I can't speak the pain. I want to spend the rest of my life in your arms, being reminded that I've been waiting for just this moment...with you. Cuddle with me at night. Touch me and touch me often. Hug me for no reason. Kiss my temple. Always kiss me goodnight.

Be my toughest critique and my biggest fan. Surround our home in God's love, the sound of joy and the ready promise of laughter. Share in the joy of friendship. Take me to church. Love children, especially our children and remind them every night that you do. 

When the storms of life inevitably tremble the timbers of our home and threaten to rattle the foundation of our love, promise to never leave. To never allow the word "divorce" to enter our words, even in jest. 

Be the spiritual leader of our home. Believe the Bible. Beginning to end. Be a man that the rest of the world looks at and sees Jesus. Raise our children to love God. Speak

with love, but always readily share your frustrations with me.


Find your dream and chase hard in the direction God places you. Take my hand and I'll run with you.

Be my best friend. My lover. My soul mate. 

The man I've been waiting for my entire life. 

With all the love I have yet to give,
Your Future Wife.

    1. I can't remember... You read the book "Praying for your Future Husband" didn't you? I gave this book to my daughter and she said it helped her tremendously!

    2. LOL! I can't say as I blame your daughter. And I'm only two years younger than she is. ;-) I'm so glad for your daughter! And even happier that you already love him like a son. Yes, I did read that book and I need to read it again. It's been a year or longer. SUCH a good book!

    1. Thank you, Beth. It took more courage than I realized to actually put this piece of me on the internet and there isn't much I don't blog about. ;-)

  8. I love this so much. I have a journal that I write to my future (unknown ;) husband. The only rule is I can't write in it while liking or thinking of another guy. One of my mentors did this, and gave it to her husband on their wedding night along with her purity ring. How sweet!!

    1. Wow, that is really wise and I completely agree. I recently went through a very short period of thinking about a guy, which eventually ended for a number of reasons, but I was held back from writing any of these kind of posts or letters until I knew if he was the right one for me or not. I'm very glad for waiting.

    2. Hey Carrey
      Yesterday after reading Pray for your future husband.
      I believe that it was God who told to start writting letters to my future husband until the day we meet. I had a dream weeks ago where we actually met but I didn't get to see his face

  9. Wow, Casey. That brought a tear to my eye and I don't cry easily. So very beautiful. Just as I hope your marriage will be.

  10. I have a journal that I write letters to my future husband in whoever he might be. At 26 I am still waiting and trusting God's timing. God's timing is always best. This season of singleness allows me to serve in ways that I would not be able to do if I was married.

    1. A journal is one thing I haven't started yet. Not at least to my future husband. Someday, I'll start one. And yes, God's timing is always best. It's hard, but always, always for the best. I've see that too many times in my life already to doubt Him.

  11. Beautiful heartfelt words, Casey... I'm right there with you in the waiting phase. Not always easy, but it will be totally worth it. God's got great guys coming for us, Casey. Just you wait and see.

    Blessings,
    Andrea

    1. Knowing He has the desires of my heart in mind is SUCH a gift of peace. Aligning my heart with His makes the dance all the more intimate.

      I certainly hope so, Julie. I certainly hope so. :)

  16. I wrote letters to my future husband a year before we met. God gave me everything I asked for. We have been married 13 years. I still pull the journal out from time to time to remind me of the blessing God gave me.
