Ten years ago.

Ok, so when I saw the date yesterday I realized that it had been exactly ten whole years ago that I entered my first “girlfriend” role. TEN YEARS AGO! I was 14! What the heck were my parents thinking?!

In other news: I’m working on a very long post, so please bear with me. It’ll take some time.

  1. Hey, so I think this is were I’m supposed to say how grateful I am that my parents have decided to raise me the way they have. Asking and helping me to wait until I’m ready to get married to start looking for *him.*

    And actually that is very true, I am SO thankful for my wonderful parents that God has given me and for the way they’ve brought me up!

    :)

  2. the funny thing is, we dated for a year and a half and briefly talked about marriage. i must have been on some sort of hallucinogen. if i knew then, what i know now, i never would have dated anyone. i suppose i’m making up for it now. (-:

  3. 14 and talking about marriage? wow.
    I find it so funny how people my age (including myself sometimes) think that they know how everything it going to work out. Like we’re God or something. And then something comes along and puts things back in perspective, and we realize how stupid we were being. But then again, I think that probably happens with everyone.

    That last line made me chuckle… And don’t worry, you’ll find him soon enough. God has a great sense of humor doesn’t He? Besides, He knows what He’s doing. ;)

  4. I don’t regret it. Seriously, I don’t. I do think we were a bit silly to think we were mature enough to talk about marriage. I have matured (thankfully) over these past ten years and my views on dating have changed.

    This post isn’t about mistakes I’ve made or regretting my past. I’ve actually never talked about my past in such a manner here, not on the world wide web; . This post is mainly about how old this makes me feel and how silly I think my parents were for allowing me to have a boyfriend so young.

    You signed this “the accused” and I’m wondering (first) who you are and (two) why you’re taking this personally. Please email me if you have more questions or feel like you need to get something off your chest. Which my assumption, considering you’ve posted here with a hint of bitterness.

  5. no bitterness….just inquiring. Glancing over your page here, seems life is good (as good as it can be) and I am glad to see people trusting their lives to more than just the pursuit of worldly possessions.
    I don’t mean to impede. It was just the timing and sequence of events that compelled me to speak in the first place.

  6. Thanks for clarifying. I was actually up very late last night thinking about my “bitterness” sentence. It was out of line. That’s not the type of environment I want to foster here and I apologize. It was wrong of me to be that brash.

    I sincerely hope things are well for you and that you too are pursuing something more than worldly possessions. Christ is the only thing worth the effort.

    Colossians 1:15-23
    He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

    And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
