Not my typical blog post, but I wanted to share something I journaled last night after a lot of reflection over the past couple weeks.
I want you to be the one that holds my hand and catches my tears.
I want you to be the one that wakes me in the morning and helps me fall asleep.
I want you to be the one to share my joys as well as my sorrows.
I want you to hold my heart.
I want you to be the one my family gets excited about meeting.*
I want you to be the father of my children.*
I want to fight with you and know you’ll never give up on me.
I want you to comfort me and to challenge me.
I want to feel loved and cherished, but I also want to love and cherish you.
I want you to be my motivation.
I want you to be the reason I can’t stop smiling.
I want you to be the one.
The one I commit to.
The one I spend my whole life with.
Jesus, I choose you.
Knowing you chose me first.
Jesus, I love you.
Knowing you loved me first.
Jesus, you’ve given me everything.
I want to give you everything in return.
Always and forever, I want you to be the one.
*desires that will be filled spiritually rather than physically, but still very really filled, with spiritual children and my family growing closer to the Lord.
