My heart has felt so much in the past week… My grandfather died and I have been overwhelmed by all of the feelings that come with the death of a loved one. A sudden death.
For 6 days I felt pain and sadness. On the seventh I felt love, overflowing.
There is only one woman in this world that I love. There is only one person who I will go to all lengths for. There is one person that I will call my wife, and her name is Kelsie Shea Youngman.
This weekend, through all the pain, sorrow, sadness, and hurt, Kelsie taught me more about what love means than I had ever known. Her words were few, but her actions were many. Though many, they were not large. Nothing extravagant, but small actions with unimaginable depth. It was her consistency, sincerity, her selflessness, and her persistence, -her love- that have proved to me, again and with more confidence than ever before, that she will make an incredible wife and an excellent mother.
I am overwhelmed with love.
God has answered our prayers, and has blessed us with a relationship that will become a Holy Union, in His name.
Father, you have entrusted me with much. Help me in my fight for a righteous, honest, selfless, lifelong, happy, and blessed love. Guide our steps, and give us grace sufficient for trying times. You have given, and you can take away… Take everything else, before you take her. And if it’s not too much to ask… in 70 years, can you take us both at the same time? Am I thinking too far ahead? I just want what’s best- help your child out. Preesh.
I love you Kelsie Shea.
To everyone reading this, our God is a God who gives us what’s best, so long as we wait for Him to give it.
Don’t lose hope. Be faithful with what you have. God is love. Love is life. God is life.
My heart has been filled with a love that replaces pain. A love that comes from God and flows through His favorite daughter (no offense females around the world).
