Unexpected Love

2 Month Old Baby & Daddy 8 Month Baby In Father's Arms

"Unexpected" Is The Five Minute Topic This Week


As a single mother, I never would have expected that God would bless me with another child and a loving husband that would make the package complete. I laugh as I sit and remember how my sons were trying to set me up with Adam Sandler. They decided that he and I were most compatible, and that he would make the perfect Dad because of how cool he was in the movie 'Click'. Yes, they wanted me to marry Adam Sandler :) I tried to laugh that one off, but my one son was much younger at that time and was VERY serious about it. My older son was just worried that I would be alone when his brother and he moved out of the house. Little did we all know that God would step in and answer their prayers; although it was not Adam Sandler and they were pleased with the unexpected match that God made for us.

I really did not and do not mind being alone, because God has always been there for me, but it's so much nicer to have a husband that loves me. A man that thought it was important to be a father and role model to my sons. A partner in every respect. This was very unexpected ...

My Aunt would always explain that God promises a spouse (Isaiah 54), but I did not care like she did. I couldn't understand why she was so worried about it. Her marriage did not work out with my Uncle, so I kept telling her to just move on in life and be happy with being alone. Like me! One of my close friends said that I was her inspiration because she always felt hurt that her marriage did not work out and that she was a single mom. She really struggled with being alone. She said that I was a rock that she wanted to be.

That was unexpected ... I didn't realize that I had become so stone cold and had made myself not want something that I grew up dreaming about. I now realize that I had just lost faith in that one thing to the point that I did not turn to God about it at all.

In my heart, I figured that I had just messed up too much for God or had blown off the nice guys he sent my way, and this is why I was a single mother and not married again. I had totally set my mind that I was fine being a single mother. I told my older son not to worry about me; that I would be just fine if I was alone later in life. By the time I met my husband, I was all business at work and business at home. I was totally uninterested in being in a long term relationship or married (had been like that for years).

My life took such an unexpected turn ... I am glad and thank God for loving me enough to show me that I am worthy of this type of love, too :)

In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child

Becky Jane said...

I think everyone is worthy to be loved by the mere fact that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. It is heartbreaking that some never get this kind of love, but I know that what we don't get here in this life, the Lord will give us 10 fold in the eternities if we keep His commandments.

LC Hunt said...

You are right to point this out, @Becky Jane. God's love and our obedience is what makes all possible; we are human and can only try to be as perfect of a child.

Angie said...

Oh my gosh.. love your post! You are a one blessed momma! Best wishes from a momma to another momma!

New follower..have to laugh at "like a rock"....I would have been very happy for someone to say that to me :)) I've often wondered what it would be like to have a family so different in ages... I know I wanted a child so badly when my oldest son went off to college...it never happened.
Thanks for stopping by Colleen's Curious Hop! Colleen
