3 years, 2 months, and 13 days – This Girl is On Fire

Saturday marked 9 months since I said “I Do” to my husband and almost a month since my relocation to Texas to be with him.  3 years, 2 months, and 13 days since we began our courtship…

It feels as if I have known him forever. Actually, it has been more than half my life.  The last time I saw him before we re-connected in early 2009; I was a young girl-woman heading out into the world with fire in my eyes.  I was ready to change the world.

Now I am a married woman.  Still with fire in my eyes, yet now with a new purpose… God’s.  It’s still my desire to change the world, but only if He gets the credit in the end.

Alicia Keys“This Girl is On Fire” is my husband’s latest theme song for me 🙂
