I wasn't going to post over the weekend.  I usually don't.  But tonight, I am really lonely, which is not an emotion I settle into all that often, believe it or not.  Generally, I don't give it a second thought.  My life is how it is, and it's not really all that bad.  But everyone once in a while, the wave of loneliness that has no real rhyme or reason comes, and being blindsided makes it that much worse.

I saw this on Pinterest and it struck a serious nerve:
That is exactly how I feel.  Just once.  Someone to have a Saturday night in with.  Someone to go with me to a wedding.  Someone to give me a hug after a really bad day at work, or a really good day, for that matter.  No matter how okay I am most of the time, on these days my heart aches to be married and to have a family and to think that I will never get those things, that I will never find that man, breaks my heart and makes me furious all at once.  And I'm not sure which is harder to deal with. 

Anyway, just trying to keep it real around here.


  1. I will add this to my prayers...God knows the desires of our heart.

  2. Thanks, Joyce. It's definitely appreciated.

  3. It will happen Kate. I want the same thing, yet I know that it will only happen on His time and not mine. I will keep you in my prayers.

  4. I know how you feel. I have those waves too, and I never know really how to deal with them. Thanks for being so honest--it's nice to be reminded I'm not the only one. :)

    Luckily, I was reminded this weekend that God is big, but he cares about the details. He's knows us, knows our desires. We can find hope in that.

  5. Ladies, thank you! The wave has come and gone, but you are both so right. God is good, and He knows the desires of our heart. I will be praying for you, as well.
