Letters To My Future Husband
By: Miss Bonnie
One of my favorite series growing up was the Christy Miller Series by Robin Jones Gunn. The twelve books start with Christy Miller at fourteen and follow her life throughout High School. They deal with Christy’s faith, friends, family, and job. I've read each of the twelve books many times over, and Christy has become a sort of friend to me. It may sound silly, but I remember when I had my first job interview in High School – I was so nervous! I remembered reading about Christy Miller’s first job interview and went back to the book and read it again shortly before I had to go. It made me feel better, reading about her experience.
Anyway, one thing that Christy does is write letters to her future husband. Christy writes about whatever she’s been thinking about marriage or family. I remember one letter where she wrote about how she liked lots of special attention when she was sick, and how she wanted their children to have middle names!I really loved this letter writing idea so I thought it might be neat to begin doing it myself. I started writing when I was 16 and have written a few letters each year since then. I am now almost twenty one! Like Christy, I write about whatever I’m thinking about marriage or homemaking or children – just whatever I want him to know at the time. I think it’s also a special thing that lets him know I’m thinking about him and praying for him, and have been for years, before we've even met. I have the letters in a rose tin box and keep them in a special drawer in my dresser. My plan is to surprise my husband with them on our wedding day. It is my prayer that when he reads them he will know that he has always been in my heart!
