On Ryan and I's 3rd date, we went on a drive up to northern Missouri. On the way there, he told me to pick up this book (a book full of daily devotionals from the sweet man in the picture). It was June 29th, and the title of the thought for that day was "Eternal Companions."
First I thought he planned it, but as I read it outloud to him, the mood in the car quickly went from happy to uncomfortable, & I realized he hadn't planned that at all.
It was our third date. We were 18. Marriage was still gross.
I remember getting this very subtle feeling, almost like a nudge, that was saying,
"Yeah, that is totally your eternal companion sitting right next to you."
I looked at Ryan and thought, "Him????!!!!!!"
He is not what I pictured my future husband to be. But he is so good. He doesn't do things the way I would. He pushes my buttons and frustrates me to all heavenly heck. But, he is so good. He has the best heart, the best laugh, and the best intentions. He is good when I am not, and
I am getting MARRIED to him!
I guess you could say it finally hit me.
If you see me, and ask me if I'm excited, I WILL start crying.
