True Love

Dear Josh Journal,

I don’t know why, but I do.

I believe in true love. I believe that it’s possible for two people to be created for each other since before the foundation of the world was laid. What evidence do I have for this? Not much. I have studied the Bible a lot and there are about two chapters where a man and his wife are perfectly united. That is two chapters in Genesis right before the arrival of Satan. I still believe it’s possible though.

I was told by many people growing up that my expectations for marriage were too high. Really? I want to marry someone who I love, that loves me, and loves God. Is that really crazy? I don’t have a list of ridiculous criteria. I have always believed that there was always only one man for me. I know there’s not going to be a lot of volunteers but all I ask for is one. I’ve had a lot of men tell me that there isn’t just one, anyone will do. I wonder if they’ve explained that to their wives.

One thing God has promised me is that someday I’ll find that one man and we will be very happy together. So, whoever you are, I want to say something to you. I love you and I know you love me too. I’ve been loyal to you my whole life. I know relationships are hard work. I am a very hard worker. I still believe a man has authority over his wife, but I also believe Christ has authority over the man. Whenever I make a meal I think about how happy I will be to cook for you. I’ll even be happy to clean for you. I understand that one of the most important ingredients in a marriage is putting your spouse’s happiness above your own. I’ve practiced not being selfish my whole life, so it won’t be a shocking change in my routine. I believe that God is love and because I have tried as hard as I can to be close to God I believe I have a lot of love to share. I miss you. I can’t wait to meet you. I hope it’s soon.

Love,
Erika
