Ok, so for fun I joined a summer Completing Him Challenge that I mentioned earlier in my blogging. Each week there will be a new blog over whatever she challenges us to do. This week I am to post dating pics and our dating story. : )
So here is our story:
I met Jayson at Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) He was there for Journalism and I was there for Journalism and Mathematics. As it turns out they were in the same building. I think it had been a few months before I really started to talk openly with him and we would stay late to work on the paper (so would others), but there was something special about him. He quickly became someone I wanted to hang out with. I was always happy when we happen to be where we could just talk and laugh.
So eventually I looked up his number in our professor's "secret" files that we filled out at the beginning of the year every year. I decided to call him and as they say the rest is history.
So we hung out all summer...I longed to be with him always. I even had a summer job 4 hours away, but we made a point to always see eachother...I think every cent I made was spent on gas and that was when it was about 96 cents per gallon...oopps...I think I just gave away my age...lol.
We became best friends. I loved all the talks, laughs and days we got to see eachother. I never wanted to be separate from him (all my friends at the time could probably attest to that...as could our families).
So then one day my best friend (Jayson) decides to ask that question I so badly wanted to hear. Will you marry me? Of course he already knew what I would say, but I just love knowing that he wanted me as much as I needed him.
Wow...it is so amazing to me that God's timing is just that...His timing. Even though we were both Christians then, it has only been this past year that we have truly tried to be still and hear what God wants from us.
Can you believe that in 10 years of marraige I am still so in love with my husband and it grows by the day. I thank God for him and our children daily and pray that God will continue to show us what and where His plans for us are.
When I first thought about doing this blog for this challenge at the start of this week, I thought...ok, just another thing I have to get done, but as I sit here writing the details of our life from the beginning, I truly feel all that love again and am so thankful to be where I am now and I am reminded that even before I knew God knew the plans he had for me.
