Through phone calls, I immediately shared the exciting news with a few people that I had just met you – The One. WOW!!! Who knew my treasure forever had been living in the same apartment complex with me this whole time? Earlier that day, I had expressed to God my frustration because of the wait. With a heart of gratitude, I couldn’t help but give Him praise for His planning, orchestration and timing. A true modern-day Jacob experience (Genesis 29:10-11).
I would soon realize that I didn’t have your contact information, nor did you have mine. I immediately returned to your patio with my contact information in hand – written on a piece of paper – but you were not there any longer. I kept that piece of paper in my running jacket pocket for days, waiting for another opportunity.
More to come…will continue to share our love story throughout the month.
