the story of Ashleigh Kittle and Ted Slater
The funny thing is, when he and his roommate did come over, I spent most of the time talking to his roommate. Ted was too busy snooping around my apartment, trying to learn what he could about me through my surroundings.
Be careful that your efforts to “be prepared” for whenever God brings you into a courtship don’t leave you with a narrow view of how He will work. Be careful not to construct a formula in your head as to how a courtship should look. And above all, be careful to submit every aspect of future romantic relationships to our Father…including how you think they’ll look and play out. Because as many courtship books remind us, God really does write the best love stories.
