, a soul singer from Ferguson, Missouri, wrote this playful love song about his wife. The pair met as teenagers and, Owens admits, he wasn't ready for a commitment. "The first time I really saw my wife she was 14, and I wasn't ready for her at 17," he recalled in Songfacts interview. "I didn't really understand who I was and walking in my purpose and I kind of shrugged it off: 'Oh, she's only 14? Oh, no.' Everything in that song is true: 'The blueprint of my dreams that I pray it will come true.' I didn't know when I was looking at her that that's who God was going to bring into my life, when the time was right, when I had come to a place of submission, I was ready to take on the responsibility of being a husband and a father. I didn't know that she was the one that He would bring."
"It's a playful tune but it's definitely that transition from how I thought when I was a boy to now being a grown man and seeing the transition from her going from being my friend to being my fiancée to being my wife and my lover and now the mother of my children. Those different aspects of what make her a person, it's a powerful thing to see evolve because as she's evolved, it's evolved me – my understanding, in the way I see life, in my relationships, in God."
