I thought I would do something a little fun, instead of the continuous serious nature that I’ve had the past two posts.
These may not sound exactly like confessions; some may call them blessings. We are not guaranteed a husband. This is not a promise of God. He promises to sustain us. And so, while we look to Him to meet all of our needs, there are some confessions/blessings that any single girl can have. These confessions are mainly mine. I hope you enjoy!
I am able to eat French fries or Chick-fil-a or a combination of the two at least 4 times a week, if necessary.
I am able to high-tail it to Virginia with a girlfriend to watch a NASCAR race at the Martinsville track. We were probably the only girls by ourselves without a fella, but that’s what we wanted to do.
I am able to travel to fun places – within the boundaries of reasonable travel time and paid time off. Oh please, can I get back on that ship to the Western Caribbean?
I am able to watch episodes of One Tree Hill and the Newlyweds every single night because I crave it like a boy does SportsCenter.
I am able to have more Girl’s Nights and keep those friendships intact and refreshed.
I am able to fully appreciate a 40% off sale at Loft or a 50% off sale at Gap. Y’all know what I’m talking about! When the getting is good, you have to go!
I am able to eat rice and beans for consecutive meals. Though I love my meat, I get just as excited about this!
I am able to pay for, train and participate in a half marathon! Those things aren’t cheap people!
I am able to serve my church and go on mission trips to cool places like Prague!
You see, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Yes, all those things would be fun with a guy alongside. But that’s not God’s plan for me at this moment. I hope you are able to see some places in your life where God is allowing you to do things NOW! Live your life now!
Also, Happy Mother’s Day! Thankful for my mama and her example to me of being a godly woman!
