There was a very special gift I was able to give my husband on our wedding night. When I was a young, teenage girl (with hopes and dreams of falling in love, getting married, and having a family one day) I reached out to my youth leader’s wife for some wisdom. She encouraged me to start a prayer/dream journal of sorts. She expressed to me the importance of beginning to journal specific prayers about what qualities I wanted in my future spouse.
I took her advice. Weekly, and most times daily, I’d would jot down my thoughts on paper. I made lists, and fervently prayed for my future husband. It was exciting to think that, even though I hadn’t met him yet, the Lord saw him and was tenderly watching over him.
I prayed for his purity. I prayed he’d be a man of integrity and honor. I prayed he would be a mixture of compassionate and discerning. Oh, and the tall, dark and handsome part got woven in there too! Finish post over here
