There's nothing like being in love. Holding hands....kissing......having companionship....and
At least we hope, right?
First off, to the Fam: No, I'm not engaged. (smile) This post is actually aabout being single.
But the title is about marriage...
Let me explain.
Ya see, I am enjoying my singleness right now and I thank God for it. I thank God for the wisdom to know that I'm not ready yet. How do I know that, well let's take one of the most popular Biblical stories: The creation of Adam and Eve.
Okay, notice God's order: Adam was on Earth by himself naming everything. Think about how long he was roaming the garden giving things names! The Bible never specifies how long Adam was on the earth by himself, but he was on the earth long enough to figure out that there was no animal or plant or anything that he could relate to. At that time is when God decided to bring Eve into the picture.
So what does this tell me?
God wants me to "handle business" prior to me receiveing a mate. Think about it: God could have easily made Eve two seconds after making Adam and they could've roamed the garden together naming and discovering things.
But He didn't!
When Eve came into the picture, Adam already had a home for her, he knew how to grow things in the garden, he knew where to get water, etc.etc.
How much work do you think Adam would've got dome with "naked Eve" standing around?
If he was like most men, none!!!
God has a divine order for everything, and I DO MEAN EVERYTHING!!!
So, as much as women talk about "meeting the man of your dreams," we should make sure that we're the women of their dreams when we meet them!!!
Take care of business: Have a plan....have your credit in order....be able to bring something to the table prior to getting married...
Just food for thought....your thoughts?

Man, who knew that being an adult was so hard? I recently got a new car (Thank you Jesus!!!) and immediately following my purchase, we received overtime at my job. Overtime at my job is like a rare and precious jewel that only comes around maybe once a year, so when it comes around most people, like myself, jump at the opportunity.
So with a brand new car note at the forefront of my mind, I've been working OT everyday, six days a week, for the past three weeks.
Today, my body litterally gave up on me.
Today, I'm not even able to answer even the most simplest of questions, and I feel nauseous.
Today, I learned a lesson: There is a such thing as burning out...
So tomorrow, my cell phone will be off the entire day, and I'm going to get some much needed R&R.
Now if I can just make it through the next two hours.....
