  1. Crista, you are beautiful! God has someone special for you…he just isn’t ready to meet you yet. Don’t be like I was and “settle” for the first one that comes along. You are special and deserve to be treated as such. God bless, dear.

  2. Sweet Crista, Valentines Day is a secular holiday…don’t let it bother you one wit. The retailers only want us to spend money for gifts to others as a way to show our love. We need to show our love to others every day, therefore showing our love for God. God loves you and to Him, everyday is Crista Day!! God is all we need and indeed you said it right! “God’s love heals our broken places and satisfies our souls in ways that human love (not even a sweet heart or spouse) never could! Blessings for a joy filled day, every day!

  3. I love this post, took me back to my 20s when i was single and so upset that i had never had a boyfriend. And now as a 61 yr old married for many years i would say to my 20 something self, enjoy being single until you aren’t.
    and it is true, we can in fact buy ourselves flowers.

    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Crista – So I clicked on your website. YOU ARE SO PRETTY! I bet there are girls who look at you and think…”If only I looked like Crista!”

    I’m not going to say, “don’t let this holiday celebrating romantic love bum you” because it’s hard.

    Just know you are LOVED. You are His!

    And sometimes those of us who are married are also lonely for romance too. (Our hubbies aren’t wired like we are as women.)

    I’m praying you have a great February! Congratulations on being published with Dayspring…not many women can say that!

  5. Dearest Crista,
    You have truly touched my heart and encouraged me today to remind me that Jesus is the lover of my soul.
    I feel this way about the mushy mother’s day and father’s day media/commercial frenzy insensitive to the heartaches many of us carry.
    This year because of your message, I will remind myself to focus on Jesus, our real father.
    You’re a beautiful,young Christian sister.
    Have a blessed day.
    Love, your sister in Christ, Maggie

  6. You are absolutely beautiful!

    I’m 39 and have always been perpetually single. Sometimes I am fine with it and sometimes it feels like the hardest thing ever. Thank you for the reminder to focus on things above!

  7. Don’t worry Crista… God’s still looking at resumes and the heart of the right loving, wholehearted, giving and “trusting him” man. I think He wants him to a sense of humor, a heart to serve, manners and definitely how to pick a great bouquet of flowers. I think he might like him to have some cooking skills too YUM!
    He just has a few things for you to complete first. He wants you to be ready.
    His timing. His timing \0/

  8. Oh sweet single ladies, (I have three single daughters) and I love seeing them thrive. Mothers wish we could choose friends for their children but it doesn’t work that way. I know God Knows All Things and that includes the best spouse for His children.

    Patience is not easy during any holidays but please don’t compromise your convictions for a time at the movies.

    I Pray that time will be fleeting and soon you single ladies will find peace and joy in singleness.

    God bless your steps. Mentor someone and teach them about God’s Love.

    Enjoy your day.


  9. You are so very lovely-inside and out! Blessed will be the man who discovers your internal and external beauty. You’ve got it exactly right; let God be the main love of your life.

  10. Crista, it was a joy to publish this piece and share your story with our readers. We’re so glad you’re a part of our (in) family — wishing you a beautiful month full of flowers…hope…and love — however they come : )

  11. Hi Crista! I loved your post and thank you so much for sharing! I’m 29 and single as well. I also desire a husband God willing so I’m praying for you. Nothing wrong with desiring a God loving husband but I’m glad we know and trust in our Good God to bless us with His beautiful blessings in His perfect timing and according to His perfect will for our lives. Love to you, sister! ❤️❤️

    • Thanks for reading, Stephanie! And for the prayers about a husband, just prayed for you, too.

      At my church, we recently sang as a congregation “Everything and Nothing Less” by Austin Stone Worship — it is a moving song about surrender. Just wanted to share that with you in case it encourages you on your journey. 🙂

      Blesssings to you

  12. Crista,

    I didn’t date till late 30s then married at 39. We met online & have been married for 20 years now. During my single years the holidays were not fun. They talk about family get togethers & romance-none of which I had.

    Now that I’m a bit older I think of all the single elderly people living alone. Some can’t get out or do much of anything. Show God’s love to them or others. The best thing one can do is go out & celebrate your beautiful self. Knowing that God loves you more than you could imagine.

    Blessings 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing your story, Beth! It is nice to know the chance to find love is not over after a certain age. I appreciate your encouragement about God’s love. 🙂

      As Rachel said, being intentional to look out for elderly singles is a good aspiration!
