Day 15: Describe when you knew your spouse was the one.

February 22, 2014

Part of the 30 day challenge series

Ian, this isn’t romantic at all.  The short answer to the question is: I knew your dad was “the one” when we said I do on our wedding day.

I didn’t feel free to say he was “the one” — mine — until then.  I hoped it, I wished it, but I didn’t know with any certainty until then.

Your appa and I both tiptoed into love.  He’s naturally cautious and deliberate in his decisions.  I’m usually more headlong, but I was still reeling from family pain and didn’t want to open my heart to be hurt anymore.  I didn’t want to risk loss anymore.  I really wrestled with the idea of gospel vulnerability during those months.  What am I afraid of?  I belong to Christ.  My security is in Him.  The worst assessment anyone can make of me, my sin, and my baggage has been made on the cross.  All I have is Christ.  What do I fear?

But appa hung in there with me.  We had no cloud nines to float on, only rock solid gospel to walk on.  And it was enough.  It still is. :]
