This Man

Allow me to introduce My Man.
I've been his bride for nearly 17 years and yet I'm still amazed.
I'm amazed that I found this man.  I wish I could tell you that I prayed for him my whole life.
 I wish I could tell you that I sought God wholeheartedly on the subject of a future spouse.  No, I'm afraid I
was quite a bit more selfish in those days.  I knew what I wanted in a husband, but I had no idea what God wanted in my husband !
Thankfully, my momma had my back!  Little did I know, as I was growing up, momma and God had
a lot of talks.  Despite the fact that I was not seeking God's guidance in this area, she was! 
And, not only was a young mom in Michigan praying for the future husband of her little girl.  In a little town in North Carolina another momma was praying for her son's future wife.

In my wildest dreams I never could have imagined this man! 
 I tell him often that he is perfect...for me, and I really believe that. 
God knew what I needed and wanted better than I ever did. 
My Man and I take every chance we get to tell young people and their parents
to pray for their future spouses!
We also thank our mommas often.  :)
