Hmmm... I could take the funny or serious approach to this topic.
Funny being... John Marsall- the boy from Nashville that I claimed up until about 4th grade I was going to marry someday... I even dressed up as a bride for Halloween one year as a little girl and told everyone I was getting married to John Marshall Sinclair. haha I havent seen him in years, but they are still our family friends.
Serious being... the breakup from my first love was one of the hardest things I have ever been through- literally. I am awful at breakups- ask my friends. Too serious, too young, gave my whole hopeless romantic heart away. Good news is... through the grace of God, He restored my heart and prepared it for someone even better suited for me. That breakup grew me closer to God and honestly shaped me into who I am today. Looking back (hindsight is always 20/20) I can now see why it did not work out and why Logan was the one for me. I heard a sermon a few weeks ago that said "God's will is what we would do if we knew ALL the facts- present, past, and future." God knew my future- Logan - and He knew how I needed to mature, grow up, and heal before I met my man. I must say he was well worth the tears, waiting, lonely nights, and heartache.
Now I truly understand the meaning behind Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life."
