As I have gone through and am going through lessons on learning to trust, to be content, to look to my Saviour alone for what I need, particularly recently, I have watched my little sister get married and within a year have a beautiful baby who is thriving (and has learned to use his lungs!). I will admit to the sin of jealousy during this year. Not constant, but every once in a while I would long to be where I wanted to be and not where God wanted me to be.
Then I read this post. Granted, I already knew the happiness and struggles. But reading her post really made me realize that she is learning the same things as a married woman as I am as a single woman. Somehow, that encouraged me. It made me realize (although I already knew it) that the stuggles I deal with now aren't because I am single, but they are lessons that everyone needs to learn: man or woman, single or married, young or old.
I want to thank my dear sister for writing a post that led me to this beautiful realization.
