It's been a year.
A year since he cooked me dinner, told me he was in love with me, asked me to be his girlfriend, and then kissed me (yes, in that order). Close to a year since the Lord told me he would launch in August and we were looking at a total of 12 months of long distance. Almost a year since we hiked Mt. Yonah and did cartwheels in the freezer section of Kroger because we could. Nearly a year since we said good-bye.
My yes to him was one of the best I've ever said. Now that I'm this close to seeing him again, I get it. I understand the Lord's purpose in us being apart for so long. While I wish we could celebrate together today, it's been worth it. There's so much more to say, but this is a taste of the Lord's incredible authorship of our story.
Ronny, thanks for being my best friend first and for adding layers to that like boyfriend as well. You're one of the best men I know. As we told each other when we said good-bye, I wouldn't want to do this with someone who would do anything less than say yes to Jesus with everything in them. I love you. It's been a year, and I'm glad it was with you.
