I didn't have Bible Study last night. It's been canceled a few times recently, due to busyness in people's lives. I didn't really do anything special with the Friday night free though. It always seems like when someone invites me to do something on Fridays, I have Bible Study, which to me comes first. Then when Bible Study is canceled, there's nothing to do... just one of those things. :)
But Ryan actually isn't working this Saturday. A lot of Saturdays, which are Friday nights and Saturday mornings here due to the time difference. So we're spending the time together. I came online while he goees takes a quick shower, but we've been on the phone for hours and will be again when he gets out. Truth is, right now I'm basically on India time, because I stay up all night talking to him, then go to bed in the early afternoon. I'll force myself to either stay up or wake up early if I have plans, but well, I don't. So India time it is.
We've been discussing India today. And my hopefully upcoming visit. We were looking at flights to just price them. We don't know when all the paperwork will be done, and I'll have my passport and visa, so we can't actually plan yet. But we can prepare, which is what God likes better anyway.
We've also been dreaming a little, and talking about all the things we could do... but we know that we don't have all the money in the world, so we won't actually get to do it all. But for now, we're in a dreaming, not a planning stage.
Ryan wants me to come and stay. He's semi-teasing. Like looking at tickets with my departure date there months after my arrival... or one way. Part of me wishes I could just move there! But not yet. Everything in its own time, right? I'd kind of like him to meet my family before we get married. Maybe I'm picky like that. Oh, and yeah, I'd like them to attend my wedding. Outrageously demanding, aren't I?
But he knows that and wants it for me and is just kidding. And it makes me feel special that he teases me like that. Because I know he really means it, in a way, and would welcome me into his life forever... how loved that makes me feel! And I do love him so! Everyday I love him more!
I am very sure he is my partner in life, my companion whose hand I'll hold as we run towards God. My dear friend Ryan, my love...
Okay, this probably getting too mushy.
