"Just keep asking, 'God, if I can't have what I want, then help me to know what it is that you want me to have.' Know in your heart there is a treasure much greater than the one you have been asking for."
- John E. Welshons as quoted in "Guideposts"
It's painful watching young people casting around for a (marriage) partner. I suppose it brings back too many memories... And its hard not to try to be helpful - but, of course, nobody wants to hear, "That's NOT what you want!" They don't even want to hear "Open your eyes. Maybe its right in front of you."
I didn't want to hear it!
But I'm glad God opened my eyes!
