Here is a true example of God at work.:2thumbs: About 2 years ago, here on MeetChristians, I'd had briefly met a young woman from Minnesota. I was getting ready to have repaired what turned out to be 5 abdominal hernias. So this young lady put this event in her notes and in her prayers.
Of coarse the surgery went fine, and I was back to work (way too early.) So we would say "hi" every once in a while, as time went on.
Then suddenly last September, I was downsized from my job. During this first part of my unemployed world, she started IMing me from her job. We would write back and forth to each other for 2 or 3 hours every work day.
To say the least, we got to know each other pretty well.:BlahBlah:
Well, her job was only temporary. So when the new year came about, she was looking for a new job also. And we had to continue our conversations via telephone. So we were really :hole: digging each other at that point. I went a head and made arrangements to go to Minnesota from Michigan to vist her. (Don't worry, we made proper sleeping arrangements) So by the time that I made it to Minnesota, we had below zero temporatures. The time I spent with her was wonderful. And I had a great time with her friends and family too. So I left behind below zero temps to arrive to, of coarse, below zero temps. So I ended up with Pnuemonia.:sick:
So at that point, she had already developed sure feelings for me. But I wasn't sure how I felt. And I didn't want to say those 3 words without knowing that I was saying them for the right reasons.:hug:
So 2 months later, she came to visit me. This was the second greatest gift that God placed in my life.:pray: The first being Himself.:ban_dance: Not only did my family come to love her, but I am very sure of my love for her and that it's for the right reasons.:kiss:
So at this point, we are scheduled to be married in mid May.
My thanks to MeetChristians, and of coarse my God, Savior, and living Christ; Jesus. If I hadn't lost my job, her and I wouldn't have been able to grow so close. She is my best friend.:party:
It is truely God at work! :bowdown:
