“ Something beautiful happens when you choose to open your heart to the right kind of people - when you truly let go of your fears, your expectations, and hold nothing back. You share your hopes with them, your dreams, your laughter, your imperfect moments, your awkward quirks. You reveal your ugliness, your struggles, your tears, your deepest of scars. You let them see every piece of you - even the pieces you are afraid to see yourself. They see the beauty and truth of who you are, and love you for it. They smile with you in your triumph, and grieve with you when you are broken. They are loyal beyond compare, and shine a light into your darkest of places. These are true friends. The people who challenge you and shape your character. Just as they become a part of you, you become a part of them. ”
Can’t believe today makes a year since we started dating! So thankful this past year together, for Facetime dates, for surprises, for disagreements, for come-to-Jesus talks, for hours of just hanging out and laughing, and for the daily encouragement that comes from this relationship. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for this next year!
So thankful for the past year and excited for another!
“ The Bible never flatters its heroes. It tells us the truth about each one of them in order that against the background of human breakdown and failure we may magnify the grace of God and recognize that it is the delight of the Spirit of God to work upon the platform of human impossibilities. ”
