Prince Charming, in a nutshell

Have you ever looked back and said..."wow I could have saved my self a whole lot of heart ache if I had (insert regret here)"? It is so easy to beat yourself up over things, but I honestly believe (because I know it is true with me) that most of the things we mess up are honest mistakes. Would I have seriously dated 4 guys knowing that I was going to end up with a broken heart in the end? No! Of course not!!

Well I am reading a book called "And the Bride Wore White". It is wonderful. If you are a single woman, or a mother to a single daughter READ IT! Some of it has been really easy to swallow and some if it has been really difficult (like the chapter on staying single in your heart until you have a ring on your finger to avoid a broken heart). Every chapter has a journal assignment and sometimes extra writing activities. A couple chapters ago I had the assignment to make a list of characteristics I desire in my future husband. Let me just say that if I had made this list as a teenager (it also is necessary to desire to live for the Lord and honor Him in your relationships and I wasn't doing that as a teen) but if I had made this list five or six years ago (and stuck to it) I probably wouldn't have dated a single one of the four guys I chose to date. None of them fit the mold (only one even came close). So just for fun, I am going to share that list (especially since my sisters and cousin are the only people who read my blog).
P.S. I hope my parentheses don't annoy you. I love them and think they are great.

1. His other love
  • He must love the Lord with all his heart
  • He must serve the Lord in some way
  • He must be a spiritual leader
  • He must be willing and able to lead me, teach me, and grow with me in Christ

2. Personality

  • Emotionally in touch and open
  • Respectful and Chivalrous

  • Likes my big family (especially my mom and dad)
  • Kind of nerdy
  • Likes being outdoors
  • Laid back (someone has to balance the control freak in me)
  • Educated
  • Do-it-yourself-er

3. Dreams/Goals

  • Wants to live on a farm, or at least in the country with some animals and a garden (hey a girl can dream!)
  • Wants to have a family
  • Dreams of living a (close to) primitive, non-materialistic lifestyle - such as living off the land, and off the grid

4. Physical Traits

  2. Hey, Anna, thanks for the post! I'm afraid that we all make mistakes! But praise the Lord He forgives us completely although sometimes we do not forgive ourselves so easily! And praise the Lord He will send His best in time!
