Married to Jesus

About a month ago my friend and I, who were tired of being single, decided to date Jesus. We decided, every time we thought about being alone, we would redirect those thoughts to God. Jackie always said we needed to put God first in any relationship anyway. And so began our dating relationship with Jesus. It seemed a bit challenging at first....trying not to think about, daydream about, plan...the wedding, but as time passed I kinda started enjoying dating Jesus. He is actually a really good boyfriend. I really felt like I didn't need to keep looking around, cas I was dating someone.....Jesus. And then the unthinkable happened. I had a breakthrough. I believed something that I have never believed before. Here goes, are you ready?

If I never get married and get to have children, I will still be alright.
Do you need me to repeat it?
If I don't get the chance to be a wife or a mother, I will still have a full life.
Wow.
I am so many things to so many people, and I do enjoy my life, and really, my life on earth is just a blip in my eternity, that it doesn't really matter in the scheme of things if I am married here on earth.
Now, I know that I would like the opportunity to get married, have kids, but I am okay if it doesn't happen. And I do know that there will be times when I will struggle with this again, but for now, I am good.
I did have a little lapse this week when I found out my niece had a boyfriend...but then again , hey, who cares, I am dating Jesus....you can't get much better than that!
