Keep Your Expectations High!
I will give you some background first ... This is a clip of my oldest daughter's wedding video, made by my new son-in-law. They got married in September, after less than a year of courting. They met on Catholic on line....and why was she using an on line dating service? Certainly not for lack of suitors! By her senior year in college she pretty much gave up dating guys (except for the formals). I asked her why? And she told me, "All the boys drink and party and have some kind of past with girlfriends. I don't want someone like that." I tried to talk her out of these delusions by explaining that that is what 99% of the college age guys do, but that was ok because they will grow out of that stage and will grow up to be happy, functioning, well-rounded husbands and parents. This is just a college stage. She then said, "I don't want someone who is getting there ... I want someone who is there now. Someone that goes to mass not just on Sundays, but also during the week, someone that prays consistently and someone that doesn't party every night." I shrugged, and said, "Good luck finding him!" She then said, "Well, if God wants me to find this man He will provide for it." I shrugged again and said, "ok" what else could I say? ... so they met on line ... he met all her expectations... and it is a match made in heaven! Watch and see!
