A Christmas Gift Your Future Self Will Thank You For

Buy a Christmas gift for yourself this year... well kinda. Buy a gift for your future husband.

The year before I started dating Titus, while I was really experiencing what it was like to be single for the first time in a long time, I bought this journal you see in his hands. I carefully and thoughtfully selected this journal because this wasn’t going to be just any journal. Wanting to be intentional in my season of singleness so that I could then be intentional about dating for marriage, I bought this journal asked God to bless it and dedicated it to my future husband.

Not knowing who that man would be for me, I committed myself to my future husband by writing down my prayers for him and our marriage and sharing about myself in this journal. Titus isn’t much of an emotional guy, but as you can see I got him good! My thoughts and prayers through singleness, dating, and engagement up until the hour before I said “I do” were my wedding gift to my husband.

•God has blessed me in so many ways, and this was by far one of the best ways I could have invested in myself as a future wife, my future husband, and our marriage.

•Even if you’re not single, but dating, start now! It’s totally worth seeing him in tears on your big day 😉 Anyone do something similar?
