No. 1: Not the man of my dreams…

1. Not the man of my dreams…

I’m married to my best friend. He’s my sweetie. And I love him. LOVE him. !! But, he’s not what I wanted.

In high school and college, the few times I thought about getting married I dreamed of a tall, dark-haired business man. I imagined us leaving for work every morning — him dressed in suit and tie, briefcase in hand — off to conquer the world together.

My sweetie, Scott. Yeah. He doesn’t fit that picture. First off, the hair’s red, thank you very much. Second, he only wears ties when absolutely necessary and prefers a backpack to a briefcase. And conquering the world, only if we’re talking video games.

See, I was dreaming of financial wealth and personal glory, not realizing that my heart wasn’t made to love those things. Scott’s not at all what I dreamed of, but he’s everything that my heart loves. And although our marriage may not ever bring us personal glory, despite our mistakes and struggles, it does give glory to God.

I’m glad my dreams are not my reality. What about you?
