184 days, 6 months, 1/2 a year

Yep, that's all that stands between Minegar and Thomas. That's the time left between single life and life as an official wife. Holy smokes, that's not that long.

I know it's not going to be all fun and games, romance and flowers... But I also know, it's going to be the most exciting, amazing adventure I could possibly dream of. How do I know this?

Well, so many reasons!

1. Genesis 2:18 - "Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.'"
I don't think God wrote this to mean that woman was just going to walk around with a to do list for her man... But instead that she'd be the copilot on the crazy flight that's married life! Oh my, I do hope that it comes with a barf bag for the aerial acrobatics. ;)

2. Genesis 1:28 - "And God blessed them. And God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth...'" 
Cue bow-chicka-wow-wow music. If you haven't read this post yet, J and I are saving ourselves until marriage... But that doesn't mean we aren't looking forward to it!

3. Ecclesiastes 9:9 - "Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun." 
Well, enjoy life with your wife whom you love... How can you ignore His great commands?

This was by far the biggest fish I've ever caught and it kept moving on that chain thing and freaking me out!
I have quickly learned (ok, not so quickly but over the last fifteen years of church going...) that God's promises are FAR greater than I could ever imagine. So, my dear J, I'm all in for a lifetime of complete chaos all in glory of Him.
