"I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true."
-Bless The Broken Road - Rascal Flatts
The song reflexs grately about my life long journey of finding true love all in the wrong places until God sent me straight to you. I endured hard times and made so many mistakes, especially with men. But now I was in love and happier than ever. So, I asked myself, could all the wrong turns have been part of God's plan? I don't regret my mistakes but look to them as strength, growth, and lessons learned in life. Without those mistakes, I wouldn't be the person I am today, or be MARRYING the MAN of my DREAMS, David Crawford! All my hardship and struggles eventully lead me straight to him without even realizing it.
We never thought in million years we would be together! I figured I wasn't enough to fit in his vision of "Barbie Material" look, and he figured he wasn't the guy for me. But with us hanging out and going out with friends, we began to realize it was more than just friendship. We began to realize our vision of perfect was sending us in the wrong direction while realistically our perfect match was always standing right infront of us.
