Time flies when you're having fun, eh?
I can't believe it's been almost a year! As the days have gotten warmer I've had flashbacks to this time last year where wedding planning and lists dominated the space next to my notes in class. I remember all the drives to College Park praising God for my wonderful fiance, skipping class to day-dream about him, spring walks and picnics together but always having to say good-bye at the end of the day... Oh yea and writing papers and taking finals. :-P
That life seems so far from me now. Now I go for walks on my lunch break and pray for my husband, I watch the sun go down and hope my honey's coming home soon, I look forward to Friday's when Andree gets off when the light is warm and wonderful and plan special dinner surprises to enjoy the weather, (Like tonight: a picnic of burgers sounds just about right to me!), and I fall asleep next to my love listening to the peepers' songs coming in through the open windows.
What a gracious God to give such wonderful gifts in such sovereign timing and to give us the ability to enjoy His gifts and praise Him for them!
