It will happen

My heart dances around you and I feel intoxicated in this thing we call us.

There's that moment I fall for, when I am going about my day in a frantic manner (like always), and you come up behind me and touch my hand, intertwining my fingers in yours. I say I don't have time but you reassure me we do and we just stand there, for 10 seconds we stand there, holding each other, being with one another and for just that moment, time stops.

I have been feeling rutty lately. I am in this constant state of dreaming, dreaming of what could be, dreaming of travel, marriage, life and love. I know it all isn't too far away and that excites me but when I awake from these dreams every morning, I can't help but feel disappointment. My heart yearns for more.

I express my concerns to you, probably far too often, and each time you reassure me things will be okay and they will be far better than we imagined them to be. 

"Give it time and it will happen" you say to me. "Let God work His magic"


Your words flow so softly into my soul and I can't help but believe you.

Give it time and it will happen. Perhaps you are right

Give it time and it will happen. But when?

Give it time
It will happen

  1. I totally understand this feeling. It's odd isn't it to miss people & places & be nostalgic for moments we haven't had yet. But like everyone has told you, give it time & it'll happen :)

  5. He's a keeper. He sounds like somebody you need to keep in your life to keep your brain from being scattered every minute of the day. I am so happy you have somebody like Stephen because you deserve nothing more, than having a supportive significant other in your life. I'm happy he makes you feel this way!

    Beautiful read as always Sam x

  10. Ahhh, girl, I love this....it reminds me so much of the conversations me and my guy have. (: Really beautiful. Ohh, and btw, I do a lot of non profit work, and I had a speaking engagement this past weekend. I had to give a short talk to inspire students to get involved in doing things to make the world a better place. I made reference to your analogy from Sunday Thoughts, about the room...(quoting from my talk) "A friend of mine explained it well, recently-- she said our lives often seem as if we are in a room with a window. And we often spend more time gazing out of that window and into the future which can not yet be fully seen, rather than simply looking around us at the room we are in here and now, filled with tools of infinite possibilities for change." Just wanted to let you know! I found that so inspiring!

  12. oh this is beautiful. aren't husband's the best? they always know just what to say?

    this is exactly what i needed to read this evening. i've been feeling the same way lately. excited about what lies ahead, but forgetting to be excited and content about the present. i need to "give it time."

  15. This is so relevant to so many aspects of the stages of life we go through. I'm constantly looking ahead, wanting the next big step to happen, and we forget the greatness that is right in front of us the entire time. Beautiful post.

  16. Sam, I once again feel as if you have read my mind and heart. I feel you, my friend.

  17. I understand how you feel. I've spent years feeling like I've had to wait far longer than other people for the things that I want. I didn't meet my man until I was 30, and then it was almost 5 years before he proposed. But I can't image my life any differently, and I'm so happy that I waited until now rather than rushing into something when I was younger. Give it time, and it really will happen.

    1. Wow Heather. This was so comforting to read. I have to keep reminding myself that I don't have to live the lives of others. My life is my own and my timing for things will always be different to the people around me. Does that make it a worse life? Hell no!
      I suppose it is easier said than believed but all I can do is take steps to enjoy what I have and not be selfish by always wanting more. I need to enjoy the now.

      Thank you so much for this comment and for sharing with me x

  19. So like, in totally non creepy way, I ship you and Stephen more and more every blog post haha.

    I know what this feels like, always waiting, always dreaming, never moving. But he is a wise man your one because it will happen, and you might not even know it at the time, but it will and I know it will be great!

    Love you lots Sam, I am counting down the days! xxx

  20. Oh, sister, PREACH! This is how I've been feeling, perfectly summed up. Waiting on God's timing for anything is difficult, but especially for romance and future plans. I love how you offer hope by the end of your post. Thanks you so much for writing this :-)

  21. Yes :) I love reading posts likes this encouraging everyone to wait and to trust God's timing!

  22. Ahh these are gorgeous words. I find it so hard sometimes to find contentment... always thinking of the next thing. But God is so happy about where I am at the moment so I should be too! I love these words so much, you're a lucky girl :) xoxo
