I imagine being in love is when you don’t just see a person, but also a future. When you stare into their eyes, you realize those eyes with become passengers throughout the many adventures that have yet to occur in your life. Their eyes are where film reels of all the ups and downs of your life are constantly playing. When you get lost in their eyes is where you find all your memories stored for me.

To be honest, I’ve never been in love, nor have I come close. So far, the only thing I’ve seen in the eyes of girls are pupils. They’ve been desolate caves, devoid of any future memories where I’m present. Things are happening in their eyes, yet the guy in them is not me.

One day, however, I’ll make eye contact with a girl and I’ll see my future staring back at me.

Within her eyes, I’ll see the day I taught our first child how to ride a bike, the day where we became “grandma” and “grandpa”, and even the building that will be our home. I’ll also see the same set of eyes that will be staring back at me on our wedding day, as we exchange wedding vows and begin a new chapter in our love story. I’ll even see the future fat and old me, who is still trying his hardest to make her laugh and make her feel like the prettiest girl in the world.

All of that, and more, will be encapsulated within those set of eyes.

I imagine being in love is reliving those memories each and every time you stare into their eyes. You see your past, present, and future staring back at you.

I spend my days searching eyes to find a future of my own, which will be staring back at me, but I haven’t found it yet. I’m not troubled by this though. God is writing my love story and I don’t intend to rush the story He has for my life. Today has enough joy to satisfy me.

When I finally met the girl who has a cove of plentiful memories of my life within her eyes, I’ll tell her, “Oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for me”.

That’s what I imagine being in love is like.

  1. I got tears in my eyes as I read this. I’ve been struggling myself for awhile wondering why God has yet to fulfill my desire to be in love with someone. It’s hard to be patient but I know I need to be and have faith in his plan for me. I pray he’s writing my love story too:) thank you for giving me a sense of hope. Your an amazing writer

  2. Hello, I follow you on Twitter and I have started to read some of your blogs and this actually made me cry. It was very beautiful, and touching! God bless and please keep writing! I seriously can tell that God is using you so much.

  3. You should be open to the idea that simply because you desire to have a wife does not necessarily mean that you will. God uses our desires in many different ways. I pray that you do find this person you are searching for, God Willing of course.

  4. Love the new style of writing.

    “God is writing my love story and I don’t intend to rush the story He has for my life. Today has enough joy to satisfy me.” – Great perspective.

    I was in no rush to get married – until I met my wife. Love completely changed my life. My days are significantly better with her in it. God’s plan for me to meet her was so crazy, but totally worth it.

  5. Wow! Now this is astounding! This will be one lucky lady…keep trusting God, he’ll lead you to her and reveal to you when you’ve found her. #GodlyMen #exist
