Just a few more days of being 35, which is fine since I thought I was 36 until May of this year when I realized I was off a year.
Although Matt and I knew each other this time last year and as his kids had become such close friends with mine just as he and I had become pretty much the best of friends, never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be where we are today. Never did I think in my friend I would find a man who I could love the way I do now, and I wasn’t interested in adding another relationship to my life – not a more than friend type of relationship. I could never see myself dating again nor could I see myself loving again, but here we are.
Im thankful that God is always true to his word and gives us his grace and mercy so freely when we’ve done everything not to deserve either of them. His word says he makes all things new. His word says all things can work together for the good of those who love him. His word says to knock and seek and ask and we will find. His word says he made us in his image and we are his children and he loves us more than a father loves his own child. His word says he will fight for us if we just be still and let him. His word says where his spirit is we will find freedom from whatever we need to be set free from. His word says that what the enemy intended for evil – God will make good and it can and will be used for his glory.
God is good all the time, and I look forward to my 36th year. God told me jan 1, 2014 that my relief would begin and I would see him fight for me…. And I did. I am such a different person than I was this time last year. I’m so thankful for what God has and is still doing in my life. And im thankful to have finally allowed my heart to open up but this time i feel like I allowed it open to the right person. I learned what it meant to guard my heart and I feel like God blessed me abundantly because of it.
****Here’s to a few more days of 35 and to year 36!****
