As Seen on TV

One of my favorite Friends episodes is the "one with the proposal" at the end of season 6. My favorite, favorite scene is the one with Phoebe and Rachel are sitting in Central Perk, talking about how happy they are for Monica and Chandler. They're 90% happy and only 10% jealous, then 80% happy and 20% jealous and so on and so on.

That's a little of how I've been feeling these past couple of days. I am so wondefully and mysteriously happy for my two friends, Jenny and Jamie (maybe it's a j-name thing), who are now engaged and beginning to plan their lives with their significant others. I'm so excited to celebrate with them their end of the separate and the beginning of life together. I am so thankful that God has placed in their lives such wonderful men who copmliment and strenghthen them in ways that show me that God is truly in their relationships.

I'm also a little sad (that 10% jealousy) that this isn't something that I'm experiencing right now, yet, or maybe ever and it leads me to wonder what exactly God has in store for me, and for my life as His child. I know the things I desire and I pray that they are Godly desires and that they one day will be fulfilled. I know that I have prayed and continue to pray for God to make his path very, very clear to me. I pray for the someday that my friends are currently experiencing.

Still, I am little impatient for these somedays to happen.

So to avoid sounding trite and/or like one of the many people who has probably already told you the same thing, I'm not going to tell you that God has a plan for you and that everything will work out the way it should. You already know that.

What I will tell you is this:
If my parents had not been killed by a drunk driver 7 years ago today, I probably would not have moved to Alaska (I would have stayed closer to home).

If I had not moved to Alaska, I would never have met Jamie.

If such wonderful things can come out of such tragedy, just imagine what wonderful things are in store for you!!!

I've never met you, Hannah Lou, but I know without a doubt that you are a wonderful girl. The reason you haven't found anybody yet is obviously because not just any guy will do-- God won't "settle".
