I see my blog as an outlet for myself - but I also see it as a ministry and a journal for my children to read when they are grown! I have a few more posts in this series and want to finish it especially for my own daughters!
As I was waiting for God to provide a husband for me - I was conscious of preparing myself to be in a good place when that happened. For example, I did not want to bring debt to a marriage. So, I worked at being debt free, having a good savings account and investing in my future.
One of the ways I contributed to our home once we got married is by the furniture I had bought when I was single. I tried to make family-friendly decisions and yet, still choose things I liked. I did not want to invest in a table that would not expand to get larger just to have to buy another one later on. I was conscious of trying to make good decisions in my purchases and saw it as a way of investing in my home both at the time and for the future I prayed for.
How will my decisions as a single affect my married life?
Is there something I want to learn during this season? Canning, sewing, bread making, etc... this is a great season to take the opportunity to do some of these things.
All these things helped in preparing me for coming into marriage without debt, but rather with some investments for our home and future family.
