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
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.
