It's a love story part 3

My junior year of college (2010) I remember feeling like God was working in my heart, preparing me for marriage. July, 2010 our friends Matt and Nicole were married and we stood as the maid of honor and best man.
I remember wondering if our day would happen soon.

As the year continued, we both waited patiently for God to lead in our lives. We prayed for each other and with each other for purity in our relationship. I knew that Jimmy wanted the best for me, and I felt the same way for him.

Sometime in September, Jimmy had a dream that I died. He woke up sick and horrified. He called me in the middle of the night to make sure I was okay. Although that seemed like something random, God used it in Jimmy's life to show him how he really felt about me. He didn't want to lose me.

As the last few months of 2010 crept up, there was a guy at the school I was going to who expressed serious interest in me. This was all Jimmy needed to convince him to step up and claim what was his....my heart:)

On December 18, 2010 Jimmy asked me to be his wife.

We set the date for May 14, 2011 just 5 months later. Yes we were crazy! 
I was in school full time, working 2 part time jobs and now attempting to plan a wedding on a limited budget and away from my family! But by God's grace and the help of many family and friends it all came together beautifully.
The most beautiful part of that May day was the fact that with the blessing of God, our family, and friends, I was starting the rest of my life with my best friend!
*Post about Our Wedding

 We started off our married life with an amazing honeymoon to the smokey mountains that you can read about here. And we have only grown more in love from that day forward! 

Many may say that this is where the love story ends, but this is just our beginning. Love is a choice that we choose to make every day. I can't wait to look back someday at 50 years worth of a love story and see how God has worked in both of our lives.

  1. I just read all three! I love it! Don and I just celebrated 40 years and ours was also a long distance relationship before we got married. We met on a blind date! It's amazing how God works. I think I'll start writing about our beginnings now too. Thanks for being such an inspiration. Bea
