♥ Me+Him

Remember, a while back, when I provided a list of requirements for all potential applicants of Mr. Right? Just as soon as that blog was posted, I immediately folded up the invisible paper, stained with invisible words, and shoved it into the deepest part of the smallest drawer in the back of my heart. It was there, I could feel it, but I always thought, "This is a nice little list. Too bad I'll probably have to settle to be as close to happy as I dream of being."

And I'm sure God heard my little heart-sigh and had to give a chuckle. If only I knew who He had in mind for my very near future. 379 days into the future, to be exact, Mr. Right himself took center-stage of my life. This love of mine has not only pin-pointed every requirement, he has gone beyond into the "hoped for but not spoken" requests that had added themselves to my list.

I can tell you that I have never felt this loved, protected and cherished by any one person in my 26 years of living. I've never been held so close in such a respectful and honored way. I have never felt loved enough to be able to share even the parts of myself that I'm not proud of.

Enter thought: God does waaaaay better than any online dating service ever could.
There has not been one day that he has not made me crack up over and over.
He talks me through even the muckiest of feelings.
His small notes and texts of sweet nothings are such effective ways of saying, "I'm still thinking about you."
Can you see his heart from where you are? It's seriously that big.

Little thoughts flutter in and out of my heart each day. Thoughts like, "That love song totally fits us." or "I'm so glad it's him. No one else could've been perfect enough." And I know that these thoughts will continue to invade my thinking-space, because I know we'll always put each other and this love we're cultivating before any earthly thing.

And each time you see me post a HAPPYSIGH, you'll know that he is solely responsible for my new home called Cloud Ten.

As you know and as I've told you so many times, in you God has fulfilled everything I knew I wanted, everything He knew I needed and everything I desired but dare not spoke for fear of it never being fulfilled. I love you deeply and promise to always invoke HAPPYSIGHS. <3

I loved this post. I love you Sarah! I am so happy/excited for you.
I also know what it is like to be on the receiving end of God's better-than-I-could-ever-imagine relationship plan! (I love that your guy comments on your posts all the time!)
God has a plan. And it is BEAUTIFUL!
