Train of Thought

Coming home on the train tonight & I am busy reading.
The train stops and I look up to see where we are.
But that’s not what I see.
In fact I quickly forget that’s why I even first looked.
I see a reflection of me.
My head is resting on my hand.
& there in the reflection on my left hand Is the most beautiful diamond ring I have ever seen.
It’s sparkling & I smile.
& think of him.
& happy tears start to well up in my eyes.

When did we get big enough to start planning a life together?

Yesterday we were just school kids and he was too shy to even talk to me.

Yesterday we were writing silly letters back and forth to each other during class & handing them to each other as we passed between classes.

Yesterday I was upset because his parents wouldn’t let me drive until I had had my license for three long months.

Yesterday we were sitting in the playground sharing lunch and talking about Friday night youth group.

Now the words Church, flowers, forever, reception, Husband, wife & my favourite ‘ours’ are a part of our everyday.

Life is good. God is good.

Spent some time last night listening to some worship & realized again just how much I needed to soak in God’s presence more & just be still.

So life at the moment – it’s busy and it’s crazy and sometimes amongst thinking about assessments, finances, wedding plans and jobs and travelling to and from Sydney everyday I feel like I can’t even think straight But I know I am so blessed to be living this life!

& I am so thankful.
