Seventy-Five days remain until I change my name from Miss to Mrs. As chaos surrounds me, so do the blessings. I’m overwhelmed with the changes occurring in my life, but even more, encapsulated by how much advice people share during this season.
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of finding my Prince and riding off on a white horse into the wilderness. It was a daydream, a fairytale that many princes and paupers envision. That is until they grow up.
During my teen years, I didn’t go on a single date. Some might call me a prude, but genuinely, no one ever asked me out! Probably because I was shy around boys, or acted like they were that freaky jumping spider you find in your bathroom and scream for someone else to come take care of!
All jokes aside, however, I know now that the Lord was saving and reserving my heart for someone special. A certain someone I would wait my entire life to date, and praise the Lord, then marry.
I met Ben at the end of my fourth year of college. I didn’t know it then, but he would quickly become a part of my life for the next five years. He will now soon become a part of my life forever.
Our dating scenes weren’t always easy. They were certainly not what I envisioned as a little girl, riding with her Prince off into the sunset. But I can say with honor that he is everything and more I prayed for. He is the Prince I envisioned waiting for, and the one with whom I will spend the rest of my days here on Earth.
The closer we get to our wedding date, the more my anxiety grows. Don’t get me wrong, I am ecstatic! Finding a place to live, and making transitions to live with another human being is a joy I prayed for many years to encounter. But as the years grow into months and days until I say “I Do,” I am also filled with normal insecurities and fears. I suppose many others in this season know exactly what I’m referring to.
In my questions and answers, there have been three pieces of advice repeated over and over to me regarding marriage. And if these have been said to you, I want you to know that you’re not alone! While the intentions behind these pieces of advice are genuine care and concern, here’s what I wish people would stop telling me about getting married.
