And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
~Momford and Sons (After The Storm)
I love this song. It is word for word where I feel like I am in my life right now. I have had many fears, shed thousands of tears (yes I cry), more than one broken heart. Now I'm trying to climb the hills and mountains of fears and temptations that try to over shadow me. Grace for My Man, being hurt deeply doesn't make it easy to leave room for anything less than perfection and that is not fair. And.... Well I'm still a kid at heart and I love flowers in my hair... and he likes flowers in my hair too ;)
I figure if anyone reads this they deserve to know about this huge part of my life. :) I could go on and on about him and who he is... but seeing as this is my blog I think I shall be selfish and tell how he has affected me. Deal? Deal.
Well... I always said if a guy would keep up with my blog I would marry him. The first day David and I started talking he went on my blog and read the WHOLE thing! That's a lot of posts. lol And that night he was up all hours creating his own blog full of poetry that he had written so that I could see his growth and his heart and his story. He was more than I ever dreamed for.
When David and I were introduced by the amazing Kirsten, I was so so done with guys. I had played with to many hearts and had been hurt to deeply. I was finally completly trying to surrender to God and only God. Be safe in only His love. Relax in only His arms. Walk only in His plan. Only then is when God allowed me to find a man who let me feel peace about a relationship. I come to find out that David was in the exact same place. Funny how God works isn't it?
David and I are like cars... I think we both have a little Corvette (fun, fast,out there, crazy) and a little Camery (relyable, smart, thoughtful, smooth) in us. We balance quite well, I'm more of a Corvette and he's more of a Camery. I can drag him out and he can calm me down. I need a guy that can do that, bring me down to earth and remind me to relax and breath without controlling me and keeping me from my friends and life. He does this quite well :)
David respects me. Me as a person. Me as my own unique person. Me as a woman. Me as a christian. Me as Me. I couldn't ask for anyone better. To see my heart... and respect it, even love it :) I truly do see the heart if God in him.
Well I'm getting sleepy and enjoying a nice night with family and friends watching Swamp People... It's pretty amazing show, seriously check it out on netflix (except maybe Ash and Linds... lots of blood :P)
Please keep David and I in your prayers as we try to keep a God centered relationship. :)
Thank you God for my Man!
