But sometimes... in reverse, the "if game" isn't so bad.
If my parents hadn't dragged me overseas.
If I had gone to a different college.
If I had met different friends.
If I had studied more, and played less.
If I had never moved to DC.
If the timing hadn't been perfect.
If God hadn't worked all these things together just right, I wouldn't be who I am, where I am, as happy as I am, right now.
Above is the first picture I can find of both T.J. and I. It's a throwback to the last day of classes senior year of college. We are playing in the fountains in front of the library about to graduate and head out into the world. And if you had told me then, that 4 years later we'd be engaged I would not have believed you.
God's timing is so good.
