I met my husband on MC in January 2006, after being a member for at least 5 years. Whenever I searched or corresponded with anyone, I had specific "criteria" in mind. When the time was right, God blasted through at least one of the criterion: I only searched for men 5 years older or 5 years younger than I. On Jan. 4, 2006, I felt a very strong nudging to expand that to 12 years older ("hmmm...I know some men in their fifties who still look and/or act quite young..." )--thinking at the time that was a BIG stretch! I was instantly drawn by Paul's profile--and, when I scrolled back to the top, discovered he lived in the same state as I. Later we learned we lived only 60 miles apart and had for 16 years, belonging to the same denomination and having several acquaintances in common! But God's timing is ALWAYS right!

We went on our first date January 22; he asked me to marry him July 24, and we were married a week ago Sunday, April 15, 2007. The wedding, reception, honeymoon, and vacation with our daughter (whom I adopted from Russia in 2003) were absolutely perfect--everything we ever dreamed of! We praise God daily for bringing us together in His perfect time. In fact, the theme of our wedding was "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven." Ecc. 3:1.

This is the first marriage for both of us (at OUR ages!), and we are 100% committed to each other. We agree that divorce is not a word in our dictionary. Our pastor commended us for the strong communication skills we possess. Oh, and did I mention--Paul and my daughter just love each other, too! She is just as thrilled to have him as her daddy as he is to be hers!

Our God is so awesome. I hope my (our) story has given encouragement to and uplifted someone today.
