Dear Future Husband

We will make a beautiful harmony together 
through the different notes that we play.

Day 30: Write a letter to your future mate saying whatever you want to say

Dear Future Husband,

It is a long, dragging journey but I learned to enjoy every step of the way; thinking that every day is one step closer to the day we will meet.  

God is preparing me to be the best that I can be because He's prepared His best for me too: a royalty for His little princess.

I know you're not going to be perfect just as imperfect as I am. But, we are perfectly imperfect for each other, and that's what makes it beautiful.  

We will make a beautiful harmony together through the different notes that we play.

I will not promise to give you everything you want, but I will serve you with everything that I have.

I am doing really well now, I feel like I could stay like this forever.  

But, the day you would come is a big big bonus from up above. I complete me, but you would complement me. Thanks for adding accent to my already colorful life.

You are the blueberry to my cheesecake. The sprinkles to my ice cream.

It's not an easy journey. People criticize me for my choices, question and laugh at my standards. 

I trip, I fall, I got lost somehow, thinking I've already found you. But, it was nothing but another fraud---a toad pretending to be you. I am glad God meddled in before I sunk deep into that mess.

I am learning everything I could, I am enjoying every moment, so that when you finally come I will have lots of stories and lessons to share with you. I am whole and you won't have to fix me. Because in the first place, that's not your job. Your job is to love me. 

When I've reached the end of the line of my single-hood, I know you'll be there waiting for me. 

Everything falls in their proper place at His right time, just as He designed the seasons to change at the right moment. We just need to be more patient because He is never late nor early. His timing is always perfect.

Dear future husband, I know you're out there. Also wondering, also waiting for that day to come. 

I can only be excited for that day. As for now, learn all you can. Explore the world. Don't be afraid to take risks. Make mistakes. Enjoy each day. 

Know that every day you face, each step you take is also a step closer to me.

I'll see you when I see you.


Your future wife

  1. absolutely nice!


  2. Dear Lux ... this is beautiful. What a good place to be, complete, whole, happy with who you are. It's a wonderful gift to give God, yourself, and others. Including your future spouse.

    Blessings on you as you continue to engage in the process of becoming all you will be.

  3. Lovely post dear! Have a great week! xx

  4. Beautifully and thoughtfully composed letter, Lux. The gentleman to whom it is addressed is definitely out there somewhere and you might encounter him while thinking of something else entirely. I met a girl in a public library in 1967 who has been my wife since 1970. She was, as you say,"whole" --in no need of repair-- however she sometimes says she's going to fix me a little more so I'll be easier to sell.

  5. I recently found a journal of mine and some entries written in 2014 were for my future husband haha! :)

  6. Touching to read through, make it happen is my advice. As always.

  7. How beautiful is this piece Lux. I'm sure you'll have all kinds of great and stories to share with him. And he will be in awe of the woman you are!

  8. Good luck to you & your future husband.

  9. Awww this is so sweet. I'm a fellow single and find myself thinking similar thoughts. Especially at night. I always wonder if maybe my future other half is also looking up at the night sky


  10. Hi, Lux!

    I can remember a few times in my life when I was certain that I had found "the one" only to have the relationship crumble at my feet. At the time I was devastated and thought I'd never again find anyone as great; but now, from today's perspective, I can see that marrying any of those women would have been a colossal mistake. At the time I was not whole. I had addiction problems and was attracted to them and staying with them for the wrong reasons. God did indeed intervene. I can see that now. You imparted wisdom when you wrote that our job is to love our partner, not to change or fix them.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Lux!

  11. I love this! It sounds like a prayer. Very beautiful.

  12. I've come across a few frauds in my day, I quickly ran away. But being happy with yourself is sure the way to be. Then when you do meet the one, together two shall be spun. At least so I'm told lol

  13. This is so sweet! I love how you realize that you are TRULY complete as you are and that your future husband will merely complement you. Such a great perspective!

  14. This is a lovely letter, and I really like how you write about how you understand he won't be perfect because nobody is - I'm sure that's something for everyone to remember in marriage! :)

  15. What a beautiful letter to that man of your dreams. And that one is on his way to you, I just know it.

  16. This is so touching.

  17. such a great post :) you have an amazing blog!


  18. I have never heard of writing a letter to a future husband. I have heard of writing one to our future selves. Definitely interesting! :) Great post!

  19. Lux, this is just beautiful!

  20. My colleagues and I were discussing relationships today. I believe the right person is definitely worth the wait, even if it takes years. I hope you find yours.

  21. Such a lovely post. It's nice how some people are brave enough to wait the best choice they can have. Rushing is not good!:)

  22. Beautiful and heartfelt. Waiting for the right person is better than settling for the wrong one for sure. The right man will find you and it'll be worth it. <3

  23. Very sweet post----you will meet your special man one day soon, I'm sure!

  24. Very sweet notes!

    Have a great week,
    Almost Stylish

  25. This is such a beautiful attitude: "I complete me, but you would complement me. Thanks for adding accent to my already colorful life." Thanks for sharing this letter!

  26. What a wonderful post. Thanks for sharing.

  27. What a beautiful letter Lux. Everything falls into place when it's the right time, and it takes patience and an open heart to see the person who's meant to be for us. Sometimes they were there all along. #DreamTeam x

  28. This was such a beautiful letter <3 I could feel the love and also, self-love, in it.

  29. Dear Lux,
    You continue to surprise me each time I read your writings. You're a blessing from God doing to many and especially me as I look forward to knowing more about the girl who gives me hope and one day will look me in the eyes to confirm what God has known all along.
