From the Couple:
2010 was the year where the seemingly impossible became possible. One day on a popular social site along with thousands of individuals befriended on my list; there was one who grasped my attention. This beautiful woman contacted me one time with a simple hello and later vanished from attendants for 8 months. I felt the absence because I had an interest. Neither of us were looking for a life partner, because of past hurts unknowingly. God was waiting for us to let go and let him choose who He had for us. I was determined not to marry someone who God had designed for someone else; this is called unequally yoked.
September 28, 2010 I logged in as I would any other day and in my inbox was an message from this beautiful woman. Our conversation picked up as if we knew each other for years never missing a beat. She started revealing some things to me that blew my mind. In my photo album are pictures of my daughter playing with my neighbor’s daughter which she revealed as her little cousin. Instantly I looked at her profile again, because I wanted to see her location of residence which was listed in a different state. Millions of people online everyday, yet reside next door to my soul mates family for eight years and never remembered laying eyes on her.There was now an urgency to meet her; so I traveled across state line to the address provided to meet her for the very first time. The date was almost a train wreck since I couldn’t find the restaurant, We later laughed about it because it was only one city block over from where we were. It didn’t matter because all I wanted was to hold my soul mates hand. My life was forever changed.It was time to take her home, and she was full of surprises. She lived in my hometown only five minutes from my house. The following Sunday I was ministered to; told my wife was right underneath my nose and didn’t even know it. This was the confirmation and the sign from heaven who He had designed for me. I can truly say don’t be disappointed or heavy burdened because there is SOMEONE who is made just for you, so don’t settle for anything less than who is designed for YOU!”
