Encouraging Tunnel Vision

You know how horses sometimes have blinders on their eyes so they can't see through their peripheral vision?

...I think Josh is my pair of those.

In the kindness and tender love of God, He knows my heart and aim is to keep Him first in each day of my life. To keep the most important things my priorities.

...and yet, with big business changes, unknowns in life's near future, and planning a party for everyone I've ever met, I need help to not just "be a girl" and get caught up in my emotions or sentimentality. I need someone to block my peripheral vision so my eyes are fixed on Christ.

This is why God has given me a man who fears Him, loves Him with his whole heart, has great compassion for me, comforts me, challenges me, and loves me so well that I wonder if this last year has been a dream.

I genuinely have enjoyed the Gospel more as a result of how Josh has demonstrated it to me over and over and over again.

I could not be more excited about learning from his focus and perspective...for the rest of my life.

We are 22 days and counting!
