When I was in high school, I had my next 10 years of life all planned out.  Then I started dating this guy.  I was not planning on falling in love.  And I remember where I was when I first time I realized that this might be a forever thing.

I had left the house he was renting and started driving away.  I remember when it hit me that I loved him.  I pulled the car to the side of the road and started crying.  I did not want to be in love with him.  With tears rolling down my cheeks, I prayed, please don’t let him be the one!  But it was too late, I already knew he was the one.

I did not want to get married.  That was not my plan.  Over twenty years later, I am very happy that God’s plan was way better than my own plan ❤  That guy I was dating turned out to be a pretty good fella.  It took awhile to learn to work together  and let our differences make us stronger.  I was 16 when we started dating, so it’s not surprising we had some growing pains together!

The funny thing is that the spot where I pulled my car to the side of the road to cry that day, is less than a mile from the house I live in now.  The irony of the locations is not lost on me.  I thought about that day when I was driving home today.

Tonight I am thankful that God’s plans are always better than our plans.  That guy I was dating was not who I had pictured at all.  I am thankful God’s plan was so much better than what I had pictured!
