So God Brought Me Mark…

So God Brought Me Mark…

Although I wasn’t looking, God knew I needed a man in my life. He knew I needed someone who was a whole person, someone who was confident, someone who could sincerely appreciate me. And all the things that I do.

He knew I needed someone who would be my partner in life, stand next to me, defend me if the need be. Someone who could pick me up when I was down or be the first to apologize because he knows how stubborn I am.

He knew that I have a tendency to keep things in. He knew I needed someone who could see right through it all. Someone who isn’t afraid to ask me how I really feel. And have the courage to take the truth, even if it hurts.

So God brought me Mark.

God knew I have a tendency to default to the negative or get caught up in the stress. He knew I needed someone who could make me laugh. Someone who can remind me of all the good things in life and teach me to be positive by example.

He knew I needed someone to fill in where I lack. Someone who is patient because Lord knows it’s not one of my virtues. He knew I needed someone who is a far better communicator than I because although I may write be able to write, the words don’t come out of my mouth as well.

God knew I needed someone who could put me in my place when I need it. Someone who isn’t afraid to push my buttons and test my patience, but only because he knows I can take it. He knew I needed someone who can push me to be a better person and encourage me to strive for my goals.

So God brought me Mark.

God knew I needed someone to be the head of our household. Someone who leads by example and will teach our children the meaning of a day’s hard work. He knew I needed someone who will work all day but come home and still make time for his family.

God knew that I never strode towards being that career woman. He knew I needed someone who was going to work hard for our family and provide for us in life. He knew I needed someone who was going to need to empower me and remind me that I am strong when I am feeling alone and helpless.

He knew I was going to need someone who is compassionate and loving by nature. Someone who is fun, who is intelligent, and who I can never stop learning from. God knew I needed the perfect complement in life…

So God brought me Mark.

Any boy I am glad he did. God knew what he was doing when he brought Mark into my life. He knew Mark was all the things I needed in life. And that he was going to be the partner who I will endure the storms and sunshine with in this journey we call marriage.  And I cannot wait until we embark on that journey.
