Country Courtship

Isaac and I, walking cows home for milking ;)

I enjoy spending lots of time with Isaac these days... :D

These past few weeks I have met with and talked to many godly ladies, younger and older, about this courtship. To be honest, I feel as though my communication 'quota' (yes, strange as it may seem, I'm a girl who has one of those) has been exceeded by 200%. There's a lot of pressure to get married, and do things the 'right' way, so it has been a struggle to be patient with myself. I'm different than everyone else, move at a different pace, and have different struggles to work through. For a while I'm going to focus less on getting advice from other people, and work on communicating with God and Isaac. Just the three of us :)

"May the peace that passes all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

The lyrics to one of my favorite songs by John Michael Talbot:

Shepherd me, O God beyond my wants,
beyond my fears, from death into life.

God is my shepherd, so nothing shall I want,
I rest in the meadows of faithfulness and love,
I walk by the quiet waters of peace.

Gently you raise me and heal my weary soul,
You lead me by pathways of righteousness and truth,
my spirit shall sing the music of your Name.

You have set me a banquet of love
in the face of hatred,
crowning me with love beyond my pow’r to hold.

Surely your kindness and mercy follow me
all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of my God forevermore.
