228 days and counting… slowly.
I’m so ready to be married to this boy. This man that my sweet and steadfast Savior created for me and me for him. Every day seems to stretch longer and longer as I anticipate getting closer and closer to being Mrs. Cunningham. I know I should be treasuring these days, the last remaining days of being “single.” Not single as in available, but single as in still being one in my own self. But how can I be content when my entire being is wanting and ready to be one with Matthew now. I’m ready for us as one to pursue the life that God created for us to live and journey through together. Everyone keeps telling me that these days are going to fly by, that our wedding day will be here before we know it. We’ve been engaged 3 months, and it seems more like 3 years. Not really seeming to “fly by” yet. I’m sure it will once classes start back and Matthew starts working at the Depot… but until then, I’m praying for strength to be patient and to enjoy these last remaining months as simply Tara.
And a side note, if anyone gets the chance, read 1 Corinthians 6:16-20 from The Message. Beautiful. I’ll just go ahead and post a direct link to it…
