Dear Husband I Don't Know Yet

Dear Husband I Don't Know Yet

This is the first of many love notes from your (future) wifey.


Hey you,

I want you to know that I love you. Before I've even met you or known that you were the one God has chosen for me, I have loved you. Not because I have to, but because I've chosen to. Like our Savior, I have chosen to adore you. In every aspect of our lives, I promise to love you, always. All of your flaws, all of your imperfections, every single piece of what makes you, you.

I promise to be a submissive wife. I promise to trust in your judgment and wisdom. I promise to assist you in all that I can. I promise to let the world ridicule me for not being independent as I submit to your leadership; standing beside you as your sidekick, your helper, your friend and ultimately your helpmate.

I promise to respect and honor you. To give you all that I am, and all that I will become. I promise to remain pure, as a sign of my love and devotion to you, and all that Christ has for us.

I promise to pray for you. Even now, before I know you, I’m praying. I’m praying that God gives us a desire to seek after and know him more and that that might be what draws us together. I promise to earnestly, genuinely pray for every aspect of your life. To seek God in trials and tribulations, with my knees on the ground and my hands lifted up.

I promise to be a servant to those individuals who need encouragement. I promise to bear your name, now our name, well. To serve others wholeheartedly and genuinely. I promise to walk hand in hand with you while writing my story, our story, yours and mine.
I promise to love you radically. To fall more deeply in love with you daily. To recognize the gifts God has blessed us with.

I promise to focus on the little things, the best things in life. To watch the sunsets with you. To play in the leaves. To climb mountains. To build snowmen. To teach our children God's word someday. I promise to always, always, always grow with you. Not only in age but in spiritual maturity. I promise to read the Word and study the Bible with you.

I promise to adventure with you. I promise to seek out all of God's creation with you by my side. I promise to see the beauty in all of our surroundings.

I promise to say I love you. To kiss you good morning and goodnight. To wash your feet like a servant, and to treat you like the man God has called you to be.
Above all, I promise to always put God first. I promise to consistently intertwine our marriage with God, with him as our focal point, striving on to our ultimate goal, being Christlike. I promise to put God above you, always and forever. I promise to braid it, babe. You. Me. God. Ecclesiastes: 4:12.

I want you to know that I'm sorry that I am impatient. I'm sorry if it takes a while for me to trust in God’s plan. I'm sorry that I get caught up in details and miss the bigger picture. And I'm sorry if I randomly buy sunflowers and disperse them throughout our home.
So, Mr. Right, I promise to love you like God loves the church, radically and wholeheartedly. I promise to be a humble servant and helpmate. I promise to honor, trust and submit to you in all of our days. In good times and bad times, in rain and in sunshine, when we're able to give much and when we are able to only give little, for all of my days, I promise you, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. Wherever you will go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God, our God.

I love you, always.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
