(Blue here)
Glory and I have written about this before in the general discussion forum, but it doesn't hurt to mention it here, too.
Glory and I first met each other on another site, but after a day or two, we came over to MC. That was June 18, 2001. We exchanged e-mail addresses, and just kept it low-key for a while. We agreed that we would have a platonic correspondance. I asked questions, she asked some of me.
We chatted after that in MC's chat room for a couple of weeks afterward.
Then on July 1 we talked on the phone for the first time. We chatted for a couple of hours. Then I called again the following night. With the exception of a couple of days, we talked on the phone every day for more than two months before I flew to Canada to see her. She was living in Saskatchewan and I was living in North Carolina.
We knew after talking on the phone for two weeks that we loved each other (and I didn't even know what she looked like, although she had my picture.) When we met Sept. 6, 2001, we fell into each other's arms after I got off the plane, and we were assured that what we knew while apart was true in person.
I went back home after four days, and we resumed the phone courtship until Nov. 20, when Glory flew down to N.C. to spend Thanksgiving with me and were together for a week. Two weeks after she went back to Canada, I quit my job. On Dec. 21 I flew up to Canada. I asked her father for Glory's hand in marriage. Glory and I got engaged Christmas morning, and on Feb. 4, 2002, we got married.
We are living in Washington now. Glory is seven months pregnant, too.
So, there ya go. It does work, but only if God is in it. We never expected all this, and didn't seek it out, really. We certainly didn't plan it.

congrats! Now for the question - how did you know? How did you read emotion? Where's the body language? I am struggling here, would appreciate a brotherly/sisterly response. Thanks and God bless

Murron was born 6:17am Saturday Feb 22, 2003.

We are blessed and amazed at what the Lord has done for us.

"How did you know? How did you read emotion? Where's the body language?"

Well, we knew because God made it pretty clear to us in how easily conversation flowed and our common values and standards for Christian living.

We read emotion in each other's voices. Neither of us are very good at disguising our feelings so it was quite clear how the other person was feeling. Time spent in conversation helps. Sure beats having movie dates where there can be no conversation at all.

The body language is in how you say things. A phrase can have a thousand meanings, depending on how it is said. Strange that, there were days Blue could tell my day was going badly even before I said aything of it. We connected mentally and verbally and I believe, that gave us an advantage over those who connect emotionally and physically but take longer to get the communication thing figured out.

How wonderful to see the family. May God continue to bless you all and may your unity as husband and wife remain as God intended. May you both always seek Him above all. Blessings my friends. With much love and prayers, Vera

Dear Blue & Glory -

You guys are just too awesome - I love you both!

Keep those beautiful testimonies and advice of yours flowing - no matter whether one "finds" someone on here or not, it's ALWAYS worth reading!

Your story is such an inspiration for me. Just goes to show that there really is no time limit. You don't have to know one another for a certain amount of time, etc. As long as God is in it....that's all that matters. God is so very awesome! I love how He has used this site to bring together so many wonderful people. Lots of couples who are happily married, who have plans to get married, and many others who are just getting to know one another. But not only that....I thank God for all the wonderful relationships I have obtained from this site. I know that when I have a need...all I have to do is go to the chat room and, almost always, there will be someone there I can ask to pray with and/or for me! It's a wonderful thing.

I love happy stories....especially when God is in the midst of it!!!!!!

How interesting that we didn't even know the other existed just over six years ago...:unsure:

Then we met, became friends, then so much more...:wub:

In such a short time out hearts were joined together as only God can do...:kiss:

The wonder of it all never ceases to amaze me...:cloud9:

I love you, Bill!
