Growing up, all I ever wanted to be was a wife and a mother. As a teenager I prayed that God would give me a husband just like my dad. I wanted a man who loved and provided for his family. A man who could fix a drippy faucet, change the oil in the car, hang a new light fixture, and even cook a meal or two.
I've never really been into romantic movies, and never dreamed of a Prince Charming. I didn't want a knight in shining armor to come in and rescue me, I just wanted a man who loved God and loved me - in that order.
22 years ago today God answered that prayer. I married the man of my prayers and dreams - in real life.
