Happy Thursday everyone! I have been reminiscing lately about the beginning of my relationship with Rodney over two years ago.
I hadn’t been in a relationship for a while, if really ever at all. I had become okay with the reality that God may have planned for me to be single and I stopped looking for someone. Little did I know, God had plans for me beyond my hopes and dreams.
Rodney and I met on Match.com in August of 2014 and chatted for a little over a month before exchanging personal information. My husband probably doesn’t know this, but it was the first message he sent to me that peaked my interest. I had met other guys online, but his message was simple and genuine. I felt he truly wanted to get to know me.
Two years ago on Sept. 20, we went on our first date in Sioux City. I remember what I was wearing, what he was wearing, that we went to SoHo for dinner and that we went for a walk at the river front.
What I remember most is how nervous we both were. We had talked so much online and over the phone, but being in person was very different. Though we were nervous and awkward, it was the beginning of a great relationship. I know this is probably how many people feel on their first date, but it was a whole new experience for me.
It is fun to think back on how my relationship with my husband began and how far we have come in two years. Who knew I would marry this man I met online and live on a farm?! I truly believe this was part of God’s master plan and I am so grateful.
Have a great Thursday, Friday and weekend! I will be praying for all those who read this and hope at least one person gets something out of it.
