Worth the Wait


Sometimes when you think you just can't wait anymore...
you realize that the wait was all part of the Master Plan.


_-10


Even now, when he's not looking I glance over in his direction
to make sure he's really there.

My heart skips a beat and I catch my breath when he turns,
catching me...he always smiles.

JR and I almost missed one another.

I was ready to give up on finding someone to share my life with.
He was resigned to being a bachelor forever (albeit with a harem all his own)

I have learned two valuable lessons:

1. Almost only counts in Horse Shoes
and

2. Giving Up should never be attempted

    Strong, powerful black and white my friend. So appropriate and right because it's your man.

  34. God is oh, so faithful and oh, so worthy of our hope...
    He hears our heart's cry and He blesses us with precious gifts far beyond what we could have ever hoped for....
    .... and they lived happily ever after.
