I was going through my journals today due to being sick, and when I was reading over these letters in my journals, I wanted to share this with you for maybe it’ll influence you to do the same!
My husband is going to get two special gifts from me once we are married and the other one that people are probably wondering about are the letters I wrote to my husband from 2010 to present day!
I began writing letters to my future husband when I was 13. One day, I was at the store and I saw this journal, and it was in that moment where I knew that I was going to write letters to the man who would marry me, love me, and be the man who would shower me with unending love.
No one has read these letters besides me, and I have revealed so many things in these journals to him. These journals are really massive, so I am only on journal 2 right now, but I’ve written about 2,500 letters to my husband, for I wrote my husband a letter everyday for the past seven years. My future husband is going to see me grow through those letters! He is going to see how I thought of him, loved him, and prayed for him for during all of these years!
Many may wonder where I got this idea from, and I wanted to be different. I want to make my husband feel extra special, and what better way than to write him letters everyday for the past 7 years?
Each letter a day is different. Some days, I am asking him so many questions and other days I am just telling him how much I love him for the 1 millionth time. These letters are my heart written out on paper, and my love for him increases as the letters go on.
These letters contain tear stains from when I was writing to him four years ago about my ex-boyfriend, these letters contain joy from when I had happy moments, and they also list my concerns and my dreams for him.
I write these letters so my husband will always know that I thought of him and loved him for years upon years! These letters show that I prayed for him, I asked God to make all of his dreams and ambitions comes true, and I wondered about him everyday for the past 7 years.
I write these letters so my husband will be able to know the Christina during the times he wasn’t there to know who I was! Most importantly, my husband will see how I have grown in my faith and in my love for Jesus. I first started writing these letters just a month after my walk with Christ started so these letters also serve as a timeline.
The night before I get married will be the last night I write letters to my “future husband” for he will be my husband the next day. That letter, is going to be one of the most special letters, for it is going to contain my promises to him and it will be the most loving and personal one yet.
After I get married, I will continue to write letters to him, and I will plant these letters early in the morning before he wakes up so he finds them throughout the day. Some days, I’ll sneak them in his car and other days I’ll sneak the letter inside his pocket, but my husband will always be reminded of my love and devotion for him, and he will always be able to look forward to my letters.
Whoever I marry is not going to have to ever doubt my love or my commitment, for I have been committed for seven years. I promise my husband that he is going to marry a woman who is in love with him, and I am going to love him so much that he will beg me to love him a little less.
One day, these letters will be read by someone other than me, and that man will be the man I wrote too for years, and he is worthy of my letters. If my future husband ever wondered if his future wife loved him right now, then I wish there was a way for him to know that I have written him over thousands of heartfelt letters!
“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.” Song of Solomon 7:10
I’ll keep writing while I am a Miss, and I will keep writing after I become a Mrs, because if a man finds me worth getting down on one knee for and having a forever with, then I find him worth writing letters too. If he desires to love me unendingly, then I will too!
This is one of the best things that I have ever done, for I highly doubt my husband will expect to receive years worth of love letters, and I cannot wait to see his expression and to finally see him read them.
You don’t have to write a letter a day like I do, but you should try to write one to your future spouse! Personally, it makes the wait easier and it gives your spouse a unique gift that most people don’t give their spouses, so that’s why I write letters to him! I want my future husband to have years worth of love letters, and how many husbands can say that their wives did that?
I don’t view the man I marry as “just a husband,” but I view him as the man who thought I was worth sharing forever with, sharing his fears with, his battles with, and sharing everything with, and to thank him for that, I have these letters for him.
