Going To The Chapel!

    I have been blessed with the opportunity to love someone and be loved by someone for the rest of my life! Readers do you remember the writing The Gentleman? Well now I am marrying him!

    It seemed like a casual double date with Zach and Jessica. We got food but then split because they were going to “check on the cars” When I was wondering where they went Peter suggusted we could walk on the doc. I saw them behind a van but thought they were just taking their sweet time meeting up with us again. I always walk a head so when I turned around he was down on one knee and asked. It was perfect! I said yes yes yes about a thousand times. 


    Peter and I met a funeral about three years ago in August. Both of us didn’t know the person who had passed but we were friends with the family of them. In the spring of 2013 Peter being the smooth move criminal he is hit my car and left a huge scrape. That is where it all began. It definitely was not love at first sight for either of us but our friendship started forming by doing favors and hanging out in groups. That Summer ministries were being launched including Project Hope. We were always talking, laughing and keeping each other posted on our running time when we would run. Even in our friendship Peter was always encouraging me, praying for me, and was there whenever I needed help with something. Last Summer when Peters and my friendship grew Peter started liking me. I of course, being afraid of someone as amazing as him possibly even looking in my direction, ran for the hills. He was patient with me, gave me my space, and was of course a gentleman. December 10th was when we were “official” a lot of people were hoping for us to date so when they heard they were ecstatic. 

    Here we are today blessed beyond belief with the opportunity to love each other as Christ loves us, forever.

Four Powerful Words

All The Single Ladies Put Your Praise Hands Up!


Tick Tock, time is ticking.

    I was  inspired to write this when I was told the clock is ticking for me to find a husband. Here’s my response;  you are most certainly right! The clock is ticking and that is why I am so big on evangelism. You see Christ is having me be single now and I am embracing this season. Why? Because here and now I can be most effective for Him. Here and now I am on my own adventure with Christ and am eager to see what He has in store for me. Too many people sit and wait for someone great to come around to start living. My question to them is: why would I wait for something great when that something great has already come? My prince charming is here and is blazing fire in my soul.

                                                      1 Corinthians 7:25-38

    Paul states it is better to be single, because there is more room for evangelism, but it is not wrong to marry because that too honors God. 

     Single ladies, there is nothing wrong with singing the song “Some Day My Prince Will Come”, believing that there is an amazing man of God out there for you, or having a desire to be rescued. But we are always let down when we live for a prince who may never come, putting ourselves in situations where we may need to be rescued, because we are placing our identity in the world.

    Single ladies, it’s time we put our praise hands up! Embrace all the seasons. Even if singleness feels like winter when we have no one to cuddle with. We can come to Him. He knows our desires and our hearts.

Prince charming fought the good fight for our very souls.

                                                              Psalm 37:4

    I do have a desire to marry and serve God in our marriage, but maybe God has something different for me. To some of you this sounds like a nightmare. The hard questions might be being asked like: God would allow that? and doesn’t the verse above just say God will give me the desires of my heart? Yes, yes,  He will. God desires us to desire Him.

                                               Philippians 3:10-Knowing God

                                                Mark 15:17-His crown for us. 

    Single ladies, are you hearing what I am saying? Prince charming fought the good fight for our very souls. He slayed the dragon and wants to take us to his castle , tell us we are His captivating princess’s warriors.  How is this not enough?

                                                  John 14:1-7-our castle

                                           Ephesians 5:12-Princess warriors

                                              1 Peter 1:8-9-He is our joy

***Notice I did not put down the whole verses. We’re single. We have time to look them up***







First kiss


     Sitting here talking with girls my age who have told me they have never been kissed stirs an envy in me. I also applaud their choice. But as soon as they tell me that they will kiss as soon as they start dating I shake my head and ask them why. I have given them my reasoning and strongly encourage girls who have waited this long to finish strong on the wait. Now you are probably thinking wow Mihaela you are so negative and you cant being going around telling people how to live, kissing is not a sin. You caught me, I am negative about kissing when you’ve waited so long already. People may do as they please yes, but I will not stop encouraging girls around my age to wait. You are also right kissing is not a sin, but may lead to it before marriage, but that is another topic for another day.  You may be tired of reading this or have already stopped, but hear me out with my reasoning below.

1) It’s your senior year in high school, only one more school year to go, and you are free! What do you do, finish, or drop out? I hope your answer is finish. You have come so far what would giving up benefit? Yes, it is hard and can be very annoying, but everyone who has graduated, including myself, will say “Yes it is worth it” So ladies at 20, 30, 40, 50, how ever old and have never been kissed why not wait just a little longer for your husbands kiss and not just a boyfriends kiss who could possibly become and ex-boyfriend. 

2) Again you have made it this far why not give 100% to your husband and be able to tell your children Daddy is the only man I’ve kissed. There are plenty of women who have told me it is weird thinking of kissing another person besides their husband.




I Wear This Ring


    The ring on my finger is not a wedding ring, or an engagement ring. It is a purity ring. I wear it to remind myself of two very important things, not only to remain loyal to my future husband, but also to be holy.

         Let me break it down.

        Purity: free from contamination.

        Contaminated: polluted.

        God commands us to be holy.

1 Peter 1:14-21

        ” As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.  But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;  for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

     Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.  For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.  He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.  Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.”

        So how do we remain pure?

Psalm 119:9

    “How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you. “

1 Corinthians 10:13

    “ No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

    So yes I do wear it to be unpolluted by not having sex outside of marriage, but also by the world. I was talking with a friend and she wanted to show me a new lotion product. She suggested I should take my ring off so the lotion wouldn’t get in it. I did. On my wedding finger there is a permanent mark where my ring should be. I literally felt naked with out it. I know that if I stopped wearing it people would ask because I’ve had it for seven years. Some day, maybe, it will be replaced with a wedding ring. If not it will be resting on my finger making its mark forever.
