While the world is striving to attain perfection, I realize the only perfect One took my place, as a perfect sacrifice, on a cross. Through Him my weaknesses are made strong. I'm not afraid to be different, because I AM different. I'm a child of The Most High. I can be imperfect because I am loved by a Perfect God.

Praying for Direction. Lift by Prayer. Working for Peace. Labor by Power. Driven by Love. Love by Patience. Living by Faith. Live by Presence. Held by Hope. Learn by Faith.

The Infamous Question

When I was in Argentina one of the first questions people would ask upon meeting me was "tienes un novio?" - "do you have a boyfriend?"

The answer was no, and I never really thought much about it, having an understanding of their culture. However, all of that was a year ago. Now, I'm a year older, seen one of my longest friends become a mom, the other one get married, I'm also less 4 of my close friends, and now have a grasp on what direction my life is going. < all of that and I'm still Stephanie...single.

I worked with a girl for the first time about a week ago. After working together, she stalked me on Facebook, then sent me a message saying she thought I was "AMAZING". Monday night we worked together again. She happened to blurt the question "why don't you have a boyfriend??"

I could have told her about all the wasted emotions on a guy who didn't have the decency to communicate with me. How for the last year my heart has been beat up by someone who I thought cared about me. Instead, I looked at her, smiled and shrugged.

But in my mind it hit me, like a hurricane of bricks. I couldn't tell her all of that because in reality, its a messy situation.

Truth is, I don't like messy.

So am I single because I don't like messes, and relationships get messy? Maybe... In a sense... Yes.

I look at the people around me who are in relationships and quite honestly they are so dysfunctional.

To sum it up: these people have settled. I refuse to settle!

Dr. Seuss said "it's a troublesome world. all the people who are in it, are troubled with troubles almost every minute....You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot, for the places and people you're lucky you're not."

And I am, I'm so thankful I'm me. I know I have a lot to offer.

Be courteous to all but intimate with few and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. this is my advice from George Washington on dating.and friendships.

I understand that no relationship will be perfect. It can't be, because its made up of two imperfect people.

is it too much to ask for a person who is perfect for me?
