Thank You, God, For Sending Him When You Did

Without your heavenly love, I would have never found mine here on Earth.

Thank You, God, For Sending Him When You Did
Sydney Moore

Dear God,

You know me better than anyone else, so you know that one of my biggest downfalls is impatience. I have been pining for the "right" guy for so long. Relationship after relationship, I have wondered what was wrong with me. After so many failures, I began to think I was the problem. I would pray every day asking you to send me "the one," and it seemed as if it just wasn't ever going to happen.

But that's where patience comes in. I understand now. All of those heartbreaks, wasted time, failures, etc., were all for a purpose. You were preparing me, making me stronger, wiser, and a better person.

I had to learn to put others before myself, realize that I deserve respect, and mature to be able to handle what you were sending me: an adult relationship.

You sent him into my life at a time when I truly needed it.

I was flirting with the cliff that plummets to lost hope. I had begun to think that I was just going to be single. But in that moment, I began to focus on myself. And that is what you wanted. And in that unexpected moment, you sent him.

Now all of it makes sense. If I would have just been patient and taken a step back, I would have seen that everything I went through was all part of the plan. It was all so worth it.

So thank you, God.

Thank you for giving me what I always prayed for.

Thank you for making me wait, and become the person I needed to be first.

Thank you for giving me a love so great that I am still not so sure I deserve it.

Thank you for sticking with me through my impatience, my stubbornness, and my selfishness.

Without your heavenly love, I would have never found mine here on Earth.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
