i just haven't met you yet

In a couple of weeks, my amazing brother will be getting married to the most perfect girl. 

I love watching the way he treats her and how in love they are... The way they forget that people are talking to them as they gaze into each others eyes with such happiness and peace all round them. I know that they have both waited 27 years for the right reason and for that reason, they will be eternally grateful as they make scared covenants in the right place, at the right time, and by the right authority:)

As i watch my older siblings get married in the temple, i see their happiness in the choices they have made throughout their life and i know that it is very well worth it. It is well worth it to be morally clean, it is well worth it to not become addicted to pornography or any other substance that is harmful to my body, it is well worth it to sacrifice my time to read the scriptures everyday and to say my daily prayers so that i will have the Spirit with me in situations where Satan could destroy my hopes and dreams of eternal life or eternal marriage... It will be so, very worth it.. to have gone through all the trials i have gone through and one day i will see them as a favor of the Lord, showing and helping me onto the path of righteousness and eternity.

I hope with all my heart, that as i prepare myself for the temple... that my husband (whoever it might be) is doing the same. That he is seeing girls as righteous Daughters of Heavenly Father and treating them with care, love, and respect as the Savior would.

I hope that EVERY guy out there realizes that whatever girl they encounter, she is a Daughter of God. Heavenly Father counts our tears... he sheds the tears we cry because he cares and loves every one of us. 

I can't wait to be married in the temple, for all time.. and eternity:) To the perfect, loving husband at the right time, in the right place and by the right authority.. i just haven't met you yet:)


With one condition... our honeymoon MUST be in Venice, Italy.

Sincerely, Ashlyn
