I want and need a partner, not a servant or someone I feel I have to take care of. I want you to be my equal. I want us to lean on each other instead of one supporting the other all the time. This is more important than you know.
I have one request. Let’s be spontaneous.
Let’s go on picnic dates, on unplanned roadtrips and dance in the rain.
I pray for you every night and every morning and send you telepathic hugs! I hope you recognize me when I hug you that first time!
“Trust in the Lord, He is the only true antidote to fear. Focusing on God rather than the trial will keep us from sinking in fear. However, learning to face our fears does not mean we will never have another anxious moment. Faith does not lie in trusting God to stop the storm, but in trusting Him to enable us to walk through the storm. When trouble occurs, He will give us the ability to cope with it.” Jill Briscoe
I really hope you’re on this campus… Not that I came to college just to find you, but I’d really like to share the best years of my life with you. I feel like I have so much love saved up and I’m getting really anxious to shower you with it all. You will make me a better person. And I will help you stand tall when you get knocked down. I don’t want to control you; I want us to be a team. A team where you lead our family just like the Sanctus Real song says. A team where you are the spiritual leader of our household and constantly challenge me to draw closer to God so that I may strengthen my relationship with you in the process. I pray for you constantly and I hope you feel comforted by it, even if you don’t realize where that prayer is coming from. Hopefully you pray for me, too. Because I really feel like I need it sometimes since I don’t have you here with me to tell me it’s all going to turn out perfectly, according to God’s unbelievably magnificent plan.
I love you already.
Your future wife.
I know that our first date will be anything but awkward, because by that time we’ll be best friends.
I really need you today, to snuggle up to and reassure me that everything will be okay, to spend the night making love and showing me you’ll always be here for me. I need you…
You better love The Office.
Sometimes, I can feel the warmth of your strong arms wrapped around me. I’ve already memorized the rhythm of your breathing when my head is on your chest. I already recognize the sound of your soothing voice, low and gentle. When you are finally here, I will feel peaceful beyond measure; it’s a peace so wonderful I can almost taste it. There will be no fear in my mind or anxiety on my heart; being near you will be enough to calm me down.
One day, you’re going to “help” me while I’m in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning, but really be no help at all because you just want to love me and dance without music. One day, I’ll give you all of me that’s left to give, and no less. I’ll love you for the rest of my days. I will respect you, pray with you, give you wisdom, and do my best to be a hard working, God-fearing wife.
I’ll be your Mr. Brightside if you’ll be my Jackie Geronimo.
Please forgive me. Don’t let bitterness get in the way of your love for me. And when there comes a time I forget to forgive you, tell me kindly, pray for me, and love me just the same. I understand that what I’m asking of you is very hard to do, love, but Jesus will give you the strength to be the man I need you to be when you listen his voice.
I want you to be the last kiss I ever have.
I’m afraid I have some bad news for you: I’m not scared of creepy crawlers. I’m the girl that all her friends call to kill the spider in the bathroom and the one that doesn’t scream when a cockroach falls on her. (True story.) Also, I’m an expert lid opener and kitchen cabinet climber. But, fear not, I will need you for much, much, much more important things ;)
It’s okay…you can fall for me. I’ll catch you.
“I get butterflies, and starry eyes, and see clear blue skies…
When you hold my hand, and make life grand, we can take a stand…
For young love.
The way that you have treated me,
Your queen you say? Well then your queen I’ll be.
Our kingdom, will be great and strong.
This bond of love is what it’s built upon.
When I look up at your smilin’ face,
that happiness I can almost taste.
Baby everything is goin’ so swell
And for you? There’s no tellin’ how hard I fell.”
I wrote these lyrics for you. I performed the song at a coffee house last weekend, I only wish you were there to hear it, too. <3
I long for the day when I come home from a business trip and you’re at the airport waiting for me.
