WE MUST NEVER LET ANY MERE MORTAL DEFINE WHO WE ARE
My first love told my daddy when exactly he would be his son-in-law. Then he was unfaithful. I was ashamed I was not worthy of fidelity.
My second love was abusive, AND cheated on me. Something in me deflated.
My third love made fun of me in a mean way, and he was unfaithful.
After a few whirlwind, abusive loves, something inside me screamed STOP!!!!!!
I remembered two important things for any human to know –
1. I got on my knees and asked for The Lord to pick me a forever husband that would love me in all the ways I love. I asked for a man that loves The Lord.
2. I remembered something important I read in Atlas Shrugged. Our chosen mate represents our highest ideal we have of our self. I asked The Lord to also make sure my forever husband would match this requirement .
God sent me John, and before God took John home, I was married to the most amazing best friend, magical romanticist, conversationalist, husband, and father for our combined children – for 23 years.
The Lord is faithful.
I thrived, and even when illness took my youthful looks, I felt beautiful. I was just me. The Lord won the beauty argument.
