A letter for her {future} husband

To Her {future} Husband,

You have fallen in love with our little girl.
And we can see why. She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
So much like her daddy, at the brink of turning five. A daddy's girl no doubt!
Rough and tumbling - loves to wrestle and jump and climb. The perfect match of a sister for her little brother Caleb.
Her personality and humor are contagious. She turns any frown into a smile. A warmth about her that everyone loves. She makes friends so easily, making them feel so comfortable in her presence.
And, boy oh boy, does she love Jesus. Talks to him all the time. Warms her mamas heart! I pray you are talking to him as well and that Jesus is a big part of your life right now!
For my prayer - a prayer I have said over and over and over again since I held her in my arms for the very first time - is that she would first and foremost love Jesus first and find a husband that loves Jesus more than her!
I am praying for you already. Praying for your parents, too, that they are doing their very best, just like we are, to raise you to be a godly man that loves and serves Christ.
I pray you remain pure and faithful - saving yourself for our daughter! For I am also praying the same for her!
This is such a hard letter to write and think about at such an early age, but I also know it is an important letter to write and think about. For my little girl is growing at a rate faster than I like. And one day she is going to meet you, face-to-face, and fall head over heels in love. And I know on that day when she comes to tell me she met "the one" I will be so happy for her, but at the same time my heart will be breaking. For my little girl will no longer be little. Her daddy will no longer be the only man she will ever hug and kiss. For her heart will belong to someone else. And that is why I want you to know how her mama felt on this day - one month shy of her fifth birthday. Because I know I will wake soon and it will be her graduation from high school day; then college; and soon after her wedding day!
And through all of it, I will be praying, for you!

With love in my heart,
Your {future} Mother-in-Law
