The other night my man and I went on a date, just the two of us, because it was really our last time to do so before the busy semester begins. As always, dinner and conversation was enjoyable. We came home and I botched up some mint chocolate chip cookies and we danced around the kitchen. The night ended and I could not have been happier. I am spoiled when it comes to long breaks like summer or Christmas. I bet we spent all but 5 days together during the past three weeks. Such a special and sweet time, but incredibly spoiling.
Tonight he came over because he starts class this week (while I have another week at home). I’ll confess it was terribly unpleasant to let him out of arm’s length. We talked about how we needed to create a plan, to get through the coming months, until we (hopefully) end up living in the same town.
It’s a time of leaning hard into Jesus — in the moments where patience, peace, comfort, and clarity are needed — clinging to what I know to be true about John’s heart for me, and gleaning all I can out of my last semester of college.
My soul will be whispering prayers with everything breath, I imagine.
Grateful for this gift, the chance to love someone and honor the Lord with that expression of love. To grow in Christlikeness and to share my heart and life with such a special person.
