7 years ago tonight I went on my last first date. My heart longed to be a wife and a mom for as long as I could remember, but after many many many bad dates, failed relationships, and passing years, I was weary. I was questioning more than ever what God’s plan was for my life. Was my heart’s desire wrong? The answer was no. God’s plan was just far better than mine and His perfect timing had to unfold so that He would be glorified. I truly am in awe of how every little thing brought me to where I always wanted to be. I’d go on all the bad dates again, cry all the tears again, and wait all over again because the Lord was faithful and brought Wesley into my life and made all my dreams come true. The wait was worth it.
