Yes. I have a beau. He’s so great.
I suppose I should tell you a little bit about us…
So, Micah and I met almost 4 years ago, at my homeschool co-op. I was a new student and he introduced himself to me. I was attracted to him when I first met him, but he wasn’t really thinking about all that. I told myself that I wouldn’t actually like him until I knew him better…
We had a Chemistry class together at our co-op and made a lot of eye contact… That’s what (he’s told me, later..) first made him slightly attracted to me.
Well, then I got to know him better. And the more I got to know him, the more I liked him and was attracted to him. We went to Worldview Academy Camp in 2019 and that was when he began to be attracted to me, seeing more of my beliefs and opinions out in the open…
That fall, we went to a masquerade ball together. I was as infatuated as ever and just SO happy. I was 15, and he was 16. Definitely too young for a relationship in my eyes, and my parents.
Well, the next year we got to know each other a lot better, started to fall a little in love… We went to another masquerade ball together that I set up, and that fall, he asked Dad if he could court me.
I was as happy as ever… It’s one thing to like a guy. It’s a whole nother thing to have a guy ask your dad if he can pursue you, with marriage in mind. I was so giddy.
Dad told Micah that we could court, once we had both finished graduation. When I first started high school I had decided I only wanted to do it in 3 years, instead of 4. So, that meant that we only had to wait until the next Summer, to start courting.
Pre-courting, when I did a photoshoot of him for his senior photos. 🙂
It didn’t seem that far away at the moment… And it really wasn’t.
Yet, those next couple of months were really, really hard.
Our parents were adamant about Micah and I staying, and acting as friends, UNTIL we graduated. Absolutely no sooner. Which was great. It helped us to develop our friendship to a level I sincerely doubt most people have between each other, at that stage in a relationship. However, we just had the desire to touch more and be with each other more… To single one another out a lot more.
But… We couldn’t. We had to remain as friends. And Micah and I struggled. We struggled really, really hard with this. It was a very hard time. Yet, we got through it, and it made us even closer than ever before. We learned to trust God through it all and to be content with where we were in the PRESENT and not be constantly wanting the future.
On June 3rd, we graduated with some of our old Chemistry pals, and we started courting. It’s been wonderful, so far. Absolutely worth the time we spent, waiting. 💕
When you read this, I’ll be attending Worldview Academy Camp yet again, and I’m sure I’ll be having a wonderful time. Attendees aren’t allowed to show affection or act like they are in a relationship, so that will be a bit hard, but I know Micah and I can get through it. 😊
And, that’s basically our story… We plan on getting married eventually and just following God in all we do. 🙂
Hope y’all enjoyed that. Just thought I’d share. ❤
