The day I met you when I was sixteen runs through my mind as I sit here and write essay after essay for college. They remind me of all the letters we sent back and forth as young teenagers.
Thank you so much for chasing me even though I kept running away from you. I’m so happy you waited one year for me like I asked you.
Thank you for taking me to that abandoned church, going down on one knee, and putting a ring on my finger two months ago. Through all this work and all our little arguments I sometimes forget what that one moment was like. Pure joy. I thank God for not only that moment, but every moment I get to spend with you for the rest of my life. I remember as a little girl, laying on my bed, praying to Jesus for someone to hold me. After my mother died when I was 14, this prayer grew stronger as my hardships grew too much to bare. I rely on him to carry my burdens, but He has provided me with you to help me remember He is the one that does so.
I take for granted what a gentleman you are, and have to ask for your forgiveness for all the hurtful things I’ve said to you in the past. God has an immense plan for you that I cannot possibly imagine, and for me to hurt one of his sons is totally not O.K.
I want you to know that nothing can stop us. God has created us to be together, and the devil nor any human can stop God’s plan.
You are the best thing I’ve ever waited for, even though I sometimes get impatient to get married. Forgive me for wanting to rush, I just want to start living with my best friend every single day.
I love you with all of my heart, David. Thank you for always being there for me and please don’t forget…
Read your Bible! 😉
Your best friend Krista.
