Happy Valentines Day


I was just sitting here thinking how much Valentines Day use to upset me...lol...silly I know but it amaizes me at what God has done in my life and sometimes I don't even notice until I stop.

I'm 37 soon to be 38 and never been married, engaged a few times but I just new in my heart that they weren't "The One" plus I had a little help from God..ok a lot of help from God. It has been my hearts desire ever since I was little to be married and have children. I can remember that it was my main focus for so long that I got lost and I was just so down and I didn't want to give it to God I didn't want to surrender my hearts desire out of fear that it wasn't Gods will for me. I didn't realize at the time that my desire was an idol, don't get me wrong I wanted God to be my all and still do I just didn't want to let go of something I ached for. I had to make a choice and I chose God and I'm still on a bit of a rocky journey with Him but I do know deep in my heart that I want Him above all else it just takes a bit for me to hand it over and trust that He only wants the best for me and the best I think is good enough does not even come close to His best. I still have the desire to be married and have children and I believe that desire is from God it just couldn't be my god.

It's Valentines Day tomorrow and even though it would be nice to spend it with the man God has chosen for me, I will be spending it with my First Love, my Sweet Jesus! And for that I am so thankful because NO one has ever and never will love me as He does. I know He has beautiful plan for my life and I will be patient even though sometimes I get a little bit impatient.

I checked the mail box, no secret admirers...sigh....hehe :)

Be blessed ladies and have a Happy Valentines Day!!!!
