All girls have their own little fancies of their future spouses, like what they will look like, talk like, and even dress like.
We lay on our beds and dream of how wonderful he will treat you, how he will open doors for you, talk to you like you were a queen worth serving...
And those things aren't so bad to hope and dream for, right?
But the other night, I realized there is something much more important.
And so I decided to make up my own little "list" of my future husband 'requirements'.
The man I marry must be polite, kind, caring, and considerate.
He must treat his mother and father with love and respect, his siblings as his dear friends, do well with babies and little kids.
But most of all, he must love God with all his heart, mind and soul.
He must be able to sit down with my parents and other elders, speak truthfully and from his heart about his faith and his Lord, without embarrassment or hesitation, and truly, truly, believe what he is saying.
He must look to Jesus Christ as his Savior and Redeemer and have the Holy Spirit within him.
He must be able to encourage me in my faith, uplift me, and with God's help, I pray I can do the same for him.
These things are important to both God and to me, and this what I pray for each night before I close my eyes to dream.
A man who has the love of God within his heart.
Just some thoughts tonight. :) I hope you enjoy.
