I remember my dad coming to visit us there on Ashley’s second birthday to help me put up some molding in her bedroom.We laughed about going to the hardware store to look for “quarter-inch putty” in hopes of filling the gap we’d left between the molding trim and the ceiling!God was our main priority, and we simply wanted to follow his plan.However, not many people took us seriously, since most high school relationships do fade away.Many people questioned our decision then, and many still do.We’re both young, working, and in school—arm-in-arm, working toward our goals.
We did our best to keep God at the center of our relationship, and we trusted Him with the rest.
Instead, we’re learning by God’s grace to realize that He alone is perfect.
And that the only perfect place we’ll ever live will be our last move, when we go to live with Him forever in heaven. PRAY Until you get to heaven, pray that you two can be satisfied with what God gives you, and never more in love with anything than you are with Him.
We were just two kids going into their junior year of high school, who didn’t really know anything about love or relationships.
I remember pouring over blogs and books for teen girls, hoping to find some sort of encouragement for a young dating couple—but I found not one thing.
