I want a love...

It's no secret that I want to be married, though after seeing some of the stuff in my office, I wonder why. The big joke is that I am going to marry Chris Tomlin, go on tour as a Woman of Faith Speaker, and he will lead worship, and Dean will play bass for him. How cool would that be? Chances are pretty slim, but you never know what God can do :)

But seriously, I want a love that when you look at it, can only be pointed to one thing... God. I want a great story. Like I met him at church, we served together, and fell in love. We found love in a place of God. Or that I met him volunteering, a way that only God could have lead us together. Or something silly like that. Meeting in a bar is not going to happen, because I don't go to bars, and most white knights don't hang out at bars because there is no where for them to park their horse.

I know that marriage is hard work. But I also know that its something ordained by God. I think the hardest part is that we (people in general) are very selfish. I still can't figure out why God gave us that quality... but there must be a reason, some day, I'm asking Him.

Besides... besides all that love, I want someone to take out the garbage. I hate that chore!

Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. (Especially if its me :) )

Taking out the garbage would be high on my priority list too ;) Have you tried any Christian 'on-line' match making services? I know three people that have successfully married from meeting people on-line :) Of course, you'd have to hook up your computer at home cuz you'd have a hard time explaining to your boss why you're spending so much time on the computer at work ;) Sometimes a gal has to be proactive in her ways. Knights sweeping you off your feet just ain't gonna happen these days ;)

I never thought I'd say this, but seems the online dating thing does occasionally work. My friend at work met her husband on line less then a year ago. She put in such high standards to be met, that she got very few responses, but the RIGHT one did respond and now they are married. You just never know!
