Did you ever have people in your life who were just wrong for you? Not necessarily boyfriends, friends too.
I used to.
Looking back, what on earth was all that stuff for? I will never understand how I let myself go through all that.
But anyway, I saw these pictures from a friend's engagement, taken in CA, at the Bay Area. They were lovely and I expected the familiar heartache to hit again - it did but it was different.
I know now that it was wrong and it didn't fit. It would never have fit. But it's different now because then, everything else didn't fit too. Not my life, not work not God, not anything.
It's been a couple of years since and I've watched in amazement - almost from the sidelines - as things fell into place. All this time, I've just been a bit player in the drama unfolding, as though I stood off at a corner and just watched Providence at work.
The heartache is because I wish I could have been here sooner and not later. But that would be doubting Providence and God's timing.
I will go to the Bay Area one day - God willing - and it will be different.
